3.38/5  rDev -6.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - A brilliant, clear amber colour with a slight white head.

S - Smells of simple malts, and indiscernible spices.

T - At first its quite fruity and caramel-like, then the spices and zest kick in to produce something entirely complex, with a heady dark streak, produced by a careful combination of malts and selected spice extracts.

MF - I would have preferred a more carbonated beer, there is little of it in there, but it still holds up well.

O - A decent effort by the Carlow brewing company, it's something particular (I feel) but I'll drink a couple more over the Christmas. It's well suited for these dark, cold days - something to come home to after a good meal!
