COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Ved juletid er det helt i orden at være hemmelighedsfuld og overraske hinanden. Og Amager Bryghus er ingen undtagelse, da vi gerne vil glæde jer. Gennem det seneste år har vi derfor holdt skjult, at vi har lagret en unik øl af quadrupel-typen i vores kælder. Vi har lagret den på egetræ og grannåle, og smagen går i den sødlige retning, mens næsen får tankerne hen på moden frugt, eg, slik og marcipan.
I samarbejde med vores hjælpenisser har vi dermed brygget det eksklusive bryg, du har her i hånden, og som er så julet, at selv Julemanden kun drikker den på de allerhelligste dage. Secret Santa er fyldt med de allerbedste råvarer. Der er ikke mange flasker Secret Santa, en øl så hemmelig, at den knapt nok eksisterer – så det var ikke med hjælpenissernes gode vilje, at vi fik lov til at udgive den. Flå den derfor ned af hylderne, hvis du skulle være så heldig at finde den. Du vil ikke blive skuffet, men måske en lille smule bimmelim, idet den holder hele 10,5% alkohol.
Ingredienser: Det gode kommunevand fra Amager, bygmalt, mørk sirup, kandissirup, rørsukker, humle og trappistgær.

English: At Christmas it’s okay to be secretive and surprise each other. And Amager Brewery is no exception as we want to rejoice. Over the past years we have therefore concealed the fact that we have matured a unique beer of quadrupel type in our basement. We have stored it in oak and pine needles, and the flavor is in the sweet direction, while the nose gets reminiscent of ripe fruit, oak, sweets and marzipan.
In collaboration with our help, goblins, we thus brewed the exclusive brew, you have here in hand and are so julet that even Santa Claus only drink it on the holiest day. Secret Santa is filled with the finest ingredients. There are not many bottles of Secret Santa, a beer so secret that it barely exists - so it was not with the help nissernes good will that we were allowed to publish it. Rip it off the shelves, therefore, should you be lucky enough to find it. You will not be disappointed, but maybe a little bit bimmelim, keeping the entire 10.5% alcohol.

McTapps (4589) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle from Meilby - thank you, Kenni! The beer has got a deep dark brown colour with an low, steady head and very smooth body. Aroma of wine, ripe plums and prunes. Taste of malt, rich barley, wine, sweet sherry, plums, caramel, biscuits, very sweet coffee and syrup. Light hints of medicine / medical syrup. The high alcohol content is clearly tasteable, the finish is sweet and smooth. Very special, yet enjoyable beer.

tfredvik (1208) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 14, 2014
A strong and very tempting aroma of Belgian yeast, caramel, dark dried fruits, dark candi sugar and well integrated vinous notes. Strong flavour as well, again of Belgian yeast, dark dried fruits and caramel, but also a good dose of vanilla and some pine in the far back. This is a violently sweet brew, and the light to moderate bitterness is nowhere near taming the sugar overdose. It’s a full-bodied beer with a syrupy texture and soft carbonation, and in the glass it looks clear and dark amber with a small, frothy, beige, short-lived head. I enjoyed this one, but a 0.5 L bottle almost got a bit cloying.
[50 cl bottle, batch 701, enjoyed 2 years before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]

Krogh (7) - NORWAY - NOV 28, 2014 does not count
Spennende duft av furunåler og krydder, men HEI for en overraskelse på smaken. Denne smaker rett og slett krydret gløgg. Sødmen var slående og nesten overveldende. Fant frem speket hjortepølse og jeg må si at dette hevet smaken betraktelig, da saltet balanserte sødmen. Passer altså utmerket til spekemat, men ikke fantastisk alene.
