Ungstrup (29077) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2004
A deep red beer with a beutiful beige head. The aroma is dominated by spruce. The flavor is sweet with notes of spruce and ginger. The flavors really brings back memories of Christmas - but they are rather weird to have in a beer. I think this beer is more special than it is good, but definatly worth a try. I expected more.

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2003
Tawny color; creamy, beige head. Strong aroma: malt, roasted malt, caramel, phenol, liquorice, raisins... Dry mouthfeel, with some of the same components, but lighter and not surprising as the aroma; ending with a coffee note as well.
