330ml bottle poured into a pint glass. My first review in ages!
Pours a crystal-clear reddish copper colour. Vigorous pour gives up 3/4 inch of head that subsides to a constant sticky lace. Carbonation is very lazy and mild. Aroma is almost too sweet for me, with that rum/sugar cane aroma in there. A bit of booze, wood, some raisins, apples, and cakelike breadiness. Quite christmassy.
Taste is pretty boozy. For me there is a lack of depth and it leans a bit too far to the sweet side of the palate. Luckily there is a bit of granny smith apple tartness to get things a bit more on track. Dried fruit and vanilla round off the palate with a bit of a woody undertone. Creamy in the mouth with a very mild carbonation, a bit thin feeling. This is a sessionable beer but I still find it a bit on the sweet side.
