KnutAlbert (6600) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2005
Full taste, nice bitterness in the finish. A proper Belgian ale, though not particularly Christmas-oriented except in the packaging. Quite similar to Delirium Christmas.

thebeertourist (5170) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 4, 2005
Light brown, big, stable beige head.aroma is dominated by caramel. Flavour is caramel and fruits. Well-balanced, but a definite emphasis on sweetness. Creamy texture, medium body. A very pleasant, rich and sweet winter beer.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2005
Looks great, with a lush, full-frothy head, very dark brown body. The aroma is very full and spicy, lightly fruited with dates and figs, hints of cherry, and it is slightly sour. The flavor is very much characteristic of the aroma: fruits, sweet and sour. This beer is an interesting take on the BSA - maybe a little too sweet and a little less spicy than most, but not bad.

notalush (5638) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2005
Dark burgundy color, with huge, foamy head that dissipates quickly - aroma of brown sugar, spice and gingerbread (quite christmas-like) - tastes like a very yeasty version of anchor OSA, with less spice/nutmeg presence - slightly tart toward the end, cutting some of the sticky, cookie-like malt flavors - there are many better chirstmas beers.

beeranarchist (231) - Aalborg, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2005
Beautiful beer, deep amber-brown and nice head. Aroma of yeast and a little spice. Taste is similar. Good, but not very christmas-ish..

DonMagi (5594) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2007 No#51. Nice bottle which attracted annoying woman, anyway. Aroma is nicely sweet with spices dominating, decent amount of malt too. Taste is very similar with a great sweet finish. Appearance was nearly a 5 with excellent lacing. RERATE: Kulminator, 1998. It smells of age, cigar box thats well old and leather. Full body, woody, thick age. Really well aged.
