La notte del 5 dicembre, i Krampus si aggirano fra le vie ed i vicoli dei paesini dell'arco alpino. Coperti da pelli di montoni, con corna e zampe di capra, agitando le loro nere catene, terrorizzano gli abitanti dei villaggi. È il preludio dell'arrivo del Vescovo San Nicola (antico precursore de Babbo Natale) che riporterà la pace, dolci e doni nella comunità. Una birra dedicata al Natale, calda ed avvolgente, dalle tenue speziatura. Ideale per aspettare lálba accanto al focolare, al riparo dalle incursioni del demoni.

Maria (10158) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2008
Blind tasting @ Yespr. Orange with a lot of sediment and a nice, creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt, honey, flower, wet grain and bread. The flavour has sweetness, notes of citrus: mostly orange but also a dry grapefruit, malt, straw and it ends on a sweet note. It’s a bit boring and monotonous, but at least not infected.
