yespr (40864) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2006
33 cL bottle. Pours with light brown and shotlasting head but creamy head. Strong smeel of a specific hop (dunno which - but I like this one) Smell and taste of hop, caramel, malt and spice. Chocolate, dark yet sweet after taste. All sorts of different aftertastes come up with every zip. This is a real belgian Christmas ale as one would expect it to be - very good work!

Ungstrup (34690) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2003
A cloudy amber beer with a fantastic light brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel, yeast and cloves. The flavor is great; sweet malty with notes of cloves. If I should come up with one negative point, it would be, that the beer is a little too sweet.

oh6gdx (25472) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 8, 2006
Bottled. Reddish amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is just lovely, richly fruity and pleasant hopping and yeasting. Flavour is sweet toffeeish with some bitterish flowery hops and spices. Pleasant aftertaste of plum, spices and flowery stuff. Extremely complex, and yes, it’s a christmassy beer indeed!!

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2005
(Bottle 75 cl) Deep reddish brown with a fine, beige head and some lacework. Dry, roasted nose with some spiciness. Lovely full-bodied and malty beer with an incredibly complex palate that brings notes of port wine to memory. Believed to be the standard Abbaye des Rocs with a higher proportion of dark 6 chocolate malts. 310599
