Without knowing exactly where to head with such a description, this tastes like Old spice, if you like. There is a maltinfluence that priovides a kind of comfortable frame of sweet taste here, but apart from that: I’d take a wild guess that this is what a fermented old man (!?) would smell like, simple as that.

The beer gives little (if any at all) aroma. However, it tastes strongly of christmas pastry/cookies, raisins and cinnamon,  and molasses.
