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.

Awsome ballance between the jeast and the frutyness, but the alcohol mess it up a little bit, but just a little. Nice

ogniskowicz (363) - POLAND - FEB 20, 2015
Aromat: cukierki ślazowe, fenole owocowe, banany, goździki, lekko w tle alkohol. Aromat raczej stonowany. Smak: bardzo belgijskie, ale przełamane słodkim marcepanowym posmakiem, goryczka średnia, wysycenie ciut za niskie jak na styl. Spodziewałem się wytrawnego, musującego piwa, a dostałem dość gęste, nisko wysycone monstrum ze słodu. Bardzo degustacyjne piwo. Smaczne, aczkolwiek niekoniecznie do powtarzania.

Bottle@wka. Brown. Sweet malty, quite spicy. Cloves, some star anise, syrupy sweet malts. Med full bodied. slight oily. Some dry rye bread, syrup, dark malty bread. Not really my thing. Overly sweet. And apicy. Lota of flavours though, but just hard to drink after the first few sips.

Moebbels (433) - FINLAND - DEC 31, 2014
A slightly hazy reddish body with a minimal head. Nose has caramel, spices, rye and yeast. Taste is cloyingly sweet with a mildly bitter finish. Carbonation is minimal and palate sweet and sticky. This is over the top on many levels. Quite awful but alcohol is decently hidden.

Amber, big red beige head. Smell of dark fruits, prunes, port, oak, spruce needles and hints of caramel. Heavy heavy sweet, anise, prunes, dark dark fruits, oak, port tendensies, all in all quite complex. Moderate bitter finish. Very nice!

Crazy one with loads of alcohol, big sweets in the back and some raisins combined with other very ripe fruits. Very special, very full bodied and strong. Not bad at all.
