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.

suprchunk (2964) - Crestview, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2013
A murky brown colored pour with some ruby highlights. One glass had a large head, one had a medium sized head that quickly fell. Notes of raisins, malt, cream, and a slight acetic nose. Taste is sweet malt, some dark fruit, slight hops, and some bread. A slight alcohol heat is present, but not overpowering. A nice winter warmer. Good.

Foffern (1693) - Bodø, NORWAY - DEC 29, 2015
Bottle at home. One year old. Has a slightly hazy reddish brown color with a small beige head. Aroma of oak, dried fruit, vinegar, leather, heather, licorice and some alcohol. The flavor is similar but with more anise, oak, leather and heather. Has a silky mouth feel, medium body and a light bitterness. A nice sweet and sour ale with a pleasant touch of spices.

bulldogops (2270) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 22, 2015
Rating #1357 05.12.2014 330mL bottle #5 from the 2014 Craft BeerAdvent Calendar - Pours a deep reddish brown with a bubbly head that disapparates rather quickly. Aroma is balsamic vinegar, oak - rich, fruity texture. Palate is well balanced - lots of tart balsamic sweetness, and very sour. Well achieved and devastatingly underappreciated.
