12oz into a 6oz sample glass. Pours a mild chocolate brown. Fun, chewy granola, amber, fluid red grape rasin aroma. Dark fruits prevalent. Taste of figs, raisn, dates, amber waves, and malty riches. Solid hearty drinking brew, love the low key aspect of it. Fluid, righteous, and satisfying. Nice beer for the season.

Season 2014/15 version. Dark brown. Tan head. Interesting aromas, juniper, spruce lingering above a kola induced malt. Medium bodied, medium bitterness, slight sweetness. Hints of juniper and spruce. Fresh yet dark enough to fit the season. Interesting, with a lot of taste going on!

Svart med litet ljusbrunt skum. Doftar och smakar lite juligt med inslag av enbär!? Ok men inte mer

Dark copper color. Beige head. Medium to thin body. Dry, some bitterness. Some odd aroma I can’t really define. Malty taste.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
It pours like a coke in color, with a handsome, frothy, quarter-inch head. It smells like Christmas in a bottle: eggnog, fruitcake, allspice, nutmeg, and vanilla curd are complemented by piney, herbal hops. Very inviting. The mouthfeel is medium to light, velvety with adequate carbonation. The taste is primarily bitter from the hops, with a spicy, orange-pelt sweetness rounding it out towards the end. It’s good, but it does not deliver on the promises the nose made. I generally like my Christmas-season beers a lot stronger, darker, stickier, and sweeter, but I enjoyed this.

Pours deep dark brown with a finger of light tan head. Aroma of malt, caramel, toffee, light citrus, light butterscotch, not very Christmas-y but nice. Taste is light to medium sweet with quite heavy burnt butter flavors, especially in the lingering finish. Light body with soft carbonation.

Gingerbread aroma. Gingerbread spice taste, with hints of satsuma orange. Lots of wort flavored bread also. Quite dry. Heaps of Christmas in this bottle.
