Drinkability: 8/10

Overall Impression: 8/10


Full on. That's the best way to describe this beer. The espresso flavour is completely prominent, and blends well with the dark malts that were used. There's a nice chocolate undertone too, which rounds out nicely on the palate. Hop flavours are very subdued, as you'd expect. This beer is not about hops. Mouthfeel is thick, almost chewy which is perfect for this rich style of beer. Something very different and very special for Christmas Day indeed, and a great way to finish off the 2021 Beer Cartel advent calendar.
