Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 24, 2004
Dark red color, nice lasting beige head. Spicy and peppery aroma, alcohol covered totally. Mild toffee comes up later. Medium to full bodied, alcohol comes up strongly in flavor. Flavor starts with strong peppery tones and brown sugar, ends with dry, alcoholic and spicy aftertaste. Aroma is slightly thin and flavor has little too much alcohol, otherwise excellent brew.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2004
Sweet malty aroma, light spice, rootbeer, fruity hops. Sugary with some caramel. Deep ruby brown clear with huge foamy light tan lacing head. Medium heavy watery body with medium-high carbonation. Alcohol burn. Starts medium sweet, with brown sugar, ginger, and other spice. Mild saltiness. Some alcoholic warming but more of a carbonic tang. Good fruity hops, with drying light bitter in the finsih. Some sweetness and malt hangs around the whole time, and after is light bitter sweet nutty flavor. A good Christmas ale, sweet but well balanced with dry hops. A bit watery, though.
