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.

jolo (921) - Uppsala, Sweden, SOUTH AFRICA - FEB 21, 2012
Bottle 33 cl . A clear red brown colour with a high, good lacing, beige head. An aroma of malt, caramel, ginger and cinnamon. The taste is heavy sweet and medium bitter. A medium body, oily texture, average carbonation and a medium long spicy duration.

Geuzelambix (243) - København, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2012
Quite good beer with an interesting taste. A little different than most christmas beers and thankfully not as sweet. Not overly impressed by the aroma or the palate, but the taste was definitely ok.

0.33 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Dark reddish brown. Strong sweet clove, cinnamon and cocoa aroma. Spicy bitter flavor with clove, cinnamon, ginger and licorice. Very spicy, nice christmas cookie aroma, but the flavor would need more backbone and body.

thirstyrabbit (1152) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 6, 2012
Small bottle. Dark brown body, minimal head. Herbal aroma with a light touch of ginger. Thin palate. Taste is herbal too, with some cough syrup but no alcohol warmth to follow, which in this case would have made it better.

maledictum (646) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - JAN 21, 2012
Dark brown with a small off-white head. Strong and perfumed spicy aroma with a touch of dried fruits. Sweet roasted flavour with coffee and chocolate notes, and lots of spice. When you know it you recognize some ginger, but it feels like a big mix of spices. Odd and oddly fascinating
