The penultimate beer of the calendar, we finally get around to me. Dexter Dark Jul Ale is an annual Christmas beer as homebrewed by myself and my father-in-law, Bjorn. The head on this beer is small and a light tan colour and the body is dark, almost black. The aroma is sweet with vanilla and some banana, and the flavour is full of chocolate, vanilla and caramel with some hints of roastiness to balance it out. The body is medium full and the carbonation is medium low.
Rating: 5 / 5 – Admittedly I’m biased here but this beer is spot on what I wanted out of it. An excellent drink to keep me warm in front of the Christmas tree.
