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.

Bottle 0.5l at Kitty’s, Helsinki. Batch nr: 906. Best fore 11/2017. Colour is deep reddish ruby with almost no head. Aromas and flavors: Sugar, sweetness, spices and hints of malts. Reminds me of Finnish mulled wines. And I have seen better mulled wines...

50 cl bottle @ Kitty?s. Batch #906: BBE 11/2017. Aroma has berry juice, some spices and sweet malty tones. Flavour bas berry juice, sugary sweet tones, some spices and sweet malty tones. Also some warming alcohol. Like an oversweet mulled wine in beer world. It would be interesting to try this as warmed. Nothing quadruple-like in the aroma, appearance or taste.

(Bottle, 0.5 l - batch 906 - BBE 11/2017, at William K Kurvi, 20141111) The beer poured ruby red and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had spices, malts, molasses and fruitiness. Palate was medium bodied and sticky with medium carbonation. Flavours were sugary sweetness, more sugary sweetness, still some sugary sweetness, malts, dried plum, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was excessively sweet and mildly bitter. I don’t remember when I’ve had beer that was as sweet as this one. The sweetness was overwhelming. Shocking.
