COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hark! A limited editon seasonal stout brewed with cocoa nibs and ginger stems.

In the true spirit of Christmas ’cheers’ we at BrewDog have taken it upon ourselves to create a Santas’s little helper for all those battling through the festive season.

Our crack team of elves, penguins and red nose raindeer have been crafting, brewing and perfecting this warming winter stout as a reward for all those driven to the brink and back in the name of Noel.

Now all you have to do is don that customary yule tide sweater and find a roaring open fire to enjoy it by.

In fact this beer is so good, we specifically advise against sharing it with any chimney intruding, night time visitors.

Oh and just remember, this BrewDog’s not for life, it’s just for Christmas.

hirigalzkar (2283) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2010
Bottle. Pours black. Off white head. The aroma has got a sweet christmasy feel to it. Notes of gingerbread, coffee and clove. Add some coffe bean roughness in the aftertaste and you get the picture of how it tastes. I really like this beer because of its christmasy feel and high drinkability!

larsniclas (5591) - Billdal, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2010
Bottled from Systembolaget Black with a large, off-white head. Fresh, slightly roasted aroma and flavour with ginger. Light to medium bitterness and pretty moderate sping makes it a good beer in my palate!

Härlig julkryddig doft, gran, en, rosmarin. Smaken är tydlig präglat av pepparkakor (ingefära) och en trevlig humlebeska.
