SaintMatty (5537) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 23, 2014
330ml Bottle - Dark brown with some orangey tinges. Mince pies, fruitcake and spice in the aroma. Fruity and fairly rich taste with a slight sweetness and notes of fruitcake and Christmas pudding.

TychoJames (192) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 19, 2014
Flaska 75 cl från belgoklubben. Grumlig orange vätska med stort skum. Fruktig, smått stallig doft. Julkryddor och äpplekart. Frisk smak av unga äpplen, vin och örter. Smått rå underton. Känns som alkoholen slår igenom lite. Hög kolsyrehalt med bra beska och strävhet.

tricksta_p (1356) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2014
Aroma of malt, caramel, toffee, raisins, slight dark fruits, some liquorice. Flavour is medium to heavy sweet with a light to moderate bittersweet finish. Just to sweet and uninteresting to me.

Draft at Rootz Winterbeer festival. Pours clear dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of overripe dark fruit, raisins, booze, caramel and light spice. Flavour is light heavy sweet and moderate bitter. Over medium bodied with light carbonation.

ForlornHope (100) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2014
75 cl bottle at home. Pours a rich ruby red with a small head that soon disappears. Very little aroma, a bit of rich malt and some peatiness, like a whisky. Sweet, with slight balancing bitterness. There is some spicing, but it is quite subtle. Quite lively on the tongue, thin mouthfeel. Overall, not bad. It avoids the cloying stickiness some Xmas beers have and is better for it.

33cl bottle shared. Pours dark brown with off-white head. Not much aroma. Taste has a bit caramel, bit sweet.
