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. Thx Morten. Beautiful hazy amber with beige head. Syrupy aroma with pine notes. Sweet flavour with lots of sugar along with a spicy, bitterness in the end. Lovely beer from the best allround brewery in Denmark.

BlazerT (483) - POLAND - JUL 13, 2016
Bottle. Teku. Deep brown/reddish with medium, semi-sensed head. Medicare head retention and lacing. Deep, intense aroma of dried fruits - raisins, plums along with some chocolate and cinnamon. Also quite intense candy-like and brown sugar aromas. Taste is sweet, rather very sweet. Dominated by brown sugar/candy flavour. Medium to full body, thick texture, average carbonation, finish is thick sweet and candy. In general beer dominated by simple sugar notes, too sweet, but nice cinnamon notes.

yourilevesque (1291) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2016
Dégustée en compagnie de Ju-Lo et Karine. Liquide de couleur noisette aux reflets rouges. Tête crémeuse d’une mousse persistante et dense comme montée aux blanc d’oeufs. Nez plutôt fade de malts, de biscuit au pain d’épices, de mélasse et de muscade. Je sursaute en constatant que RateBeer la classe comme une quadrupel. En bouche je goûte du raisin sec et comme le souligne Ju-Lo, du pruneau. Sirupeuse et dense, beaucoup trop sucrée pour moi. Nous n’étions pas trop de trois sur cette bouteille de 500ml.

Arcanor (189) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 11, 2016
500ml bottle. Good until 2016-12. Pour dark copper with a none lasting off white foam. The sweet malt cover all the other aroma. Taste of malt, rock candy and spice. Make me think more of a sweet Barley Wine then a Quadrupel. Medium to full body, oily and creamy texture with lots of sugar, lively. Long sweet finish and smooth alcool.

rodenbach99 (4174) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 19, 2016
Style et résumé: Quadruple de Noël très sucrée.
Comment: Bouteille de 500ml
Portrait: Bière brune cuivrée avec une mousse beige. Un nez de sucre d’orge, caramel brûlé avec quelques épices. Une bouche très sucrée, cassonade, épices. Finale sucrée sur les épices qui à la longue elle tombe sur le cœur.
Note: 7/10

En smag af tørrede frugter, rom og karamel med lav bitterhed. En god juleøl.

SlovakSniper (5001) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2016
Robe acajou avec mousse beige qui s’éparpille sur la paroi de mon verre. Au nez et en bouche, grosse base maltée de type vin d’orge avec épices d’hiver bien intégrées. Avancée florale et raisins de Corinthe macérés, clou et anis, caramel et mélasse, richesse qui n’est pas lourde. Corps liquoreux, pétillement modérément pointu. Finale sucrée bien longue et pratiquement sans chaleur d’alcool. Agréablement bienvenue en cette très froide journée de février.

Karelbeersindral (56) - CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 10, 2016
The Christmas spirit is clear, heavy on spices, licorice, intense. Not as drinkable as I would like it to be and a touch too sweet.

DraftDodger (1043) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2016
Copenhagen 4/2 2016. 50 cl bottle from Gunnar Madsen Vinhandel. Blinking Santa with ice crystals on the label. Pours hazy red amber with small yellow head. Disappears immediately leaving only thin flimsy foam. Aroma reminds me of cough syrup. Lot of anis, cinnamon mixed with alcohol. Low carbonation and oily palate. Taste is overwhelmingly sweet and spicy. Sugar, dried fruit, anis and cinnamon. Distinct notes of alcohol. Reminds me more of a glass of port wine than of beer. An acquired taste - but you can't say that they do not go all in on the Christmas spices.

Beerhunter111 (16484) - Hasborn, GERMANY - JAN 26, 2016
50cl bottle. Pours almost clear reddish brown colour with a huge most good lasting beige head. Aroma of spices, cinnamon, anis, dark malt. Taste of sweet dark malt, cinnamon, christmas spices, some alcohol.
