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.

Bottle. Red brown with small white head. Aroma sprouce and sweet dried fruits. Quite funny the beer isn´t so dominated by the aroma from sprouce as some IPA´s are. Very sweet and cloying. Sprouce and spices. This beer lacks some hopps to balance the sweetness. A take on a typical belgian christmasstyle beer, but way too sweet. I think it´s the first time I´ve had a quad that I didn´t really like.

Finn (4032) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2014
Flaske 0,5l. Batch 504. Gave fra Lars - tatt med fra Dammark av Rune. Takk til begge! Drukket på RV124 1 Jul 13. Kastanjebrun. Uklar. Veldig uklar i siste kvelling. Raskt dalende skum som blir helt borte. Behagelig aroma av nøtter & trær. Lite kullsyre. Smaken er søt frukt. Godt balansert. Litt sherrypreg. Antydning til granbar. Alkoholen veldig godt kamuflert.

StoutHead (605) - DENMARK - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle and tap. Pours a hazy amber color with a medium sized white head. Aroma of malt, fruits, booze and spices. Taste is pretty much like like aroma but a lot more complex - including notes of sugar, oak and citrus. Very sweet with a nice full body. Very drinkable. The 2012 version a bit better than the 2013 edition, but they’re both very good.

storskurk (94) - DENMARK - DEC 29, 2013
2011 udgave lagret hjemme 2 år. Let duft af gran og fadlagring. Figen, tørret frugt men stadig tilpas syrlig note. Uklar mørk kastanjefarve. Behagelig sødme af karamel, figen, lidt gran, belgisk gær, stor rund fyldighed. Balanceret mod bitterheden, men ku godt være en smule mere bitter. Dejlig øl dog. Kan godt smage den er stærk, men den bærer sin procent fint så man kan smage den er stærk uden at den bliver vammelsød. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
