Drake (11781) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 9, 2012
12 ounce bottle from mikem409. Thanks! Also my 4800th rating. Cool. Pours a clear dark reddish brown color with a large tan head. Good head retention. Big spicy notes in the aroma, primarily nutmeg, and some toasted malts. The taste is spruce, nutmeg, cinnamon, bitter hops, toffeeish malts. Medium bodied. This is a spice bomb and lacks balance, but its still not bad.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2012
UPDATED: APR 29, 2012 Tap at Mikkeller Bar. Appears clear dark red brown with a small light brown head and a malty, spicy aroma with notes of caramel, nuts, toast, roasted malts, x-mas spices ( cloves?) and licorice. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. Softly carbonated, oily texture. A spiced up, not too heavy, wellbalanced brew.

blackflag321 (640) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Pour from 12 oz bottle. Quickly dissipating, small head. Dark brown color. The spiciness comes on more as an aftertaste. This is an okay seasonal but I don’t see myself needing another.

Defreni (2997) - Husum, DENMARK - JAN 27, 2012
Fad: Sortbrun øl. Ligner en porter, og har da også lidt porterkvalitet i næsen. Masser af sødt julekrydderi, men på ingen måde for meget. Sød krydret smag, med en meget lang eftersmag. Både meget overraskende og meget lækker.

stouby (4437) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JAN 24, 2012
Draught at Bjergtrolden. Dark brown, clear. Aroma moderate+ malty (roasted) and spicy (cardamom, cinnamon, pumpkin?). Flavor moderate+ sweet and spicy, quite some alcohol. Medium+ body.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Bottle from Santa, December 11. Thanks! Pours a deep mahogany with an aroma of cinammon, nutmeg, banana bread, pumpkin, clove, and raisin. Flavor is pumpkin, nutmeg, cinammon, candied sugar, sweet bread, and snickerdoodle. Average mouthfeel. A symphony of smells and flavors.

JohnnyJ (5400) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 12, 2012
12 oz bottle received as a trade bonus. Dark brown pour with a tan head. Dark malts, cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel, molasses, and some dark fruit. Medium body. I like it, interesting and different. The flavors work together.

msante79 (2224) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - JAN 6, 2012
12oz bottle from Holiday Market. Pours very dark brown with tan head. Aromas of dark malts, dark fruits, cinnamon, and some cookies. Flavors of cinnamon, dark fruits, bread, and some dark malt. Not a ton of flavor and body is a little thin. Solid brew though none-the-less.

thome50 (1285) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - DEC 27, 2011
From Mike, thanks! Pours a medium brown color with an off white head. Cinnamon dominates both the aroma and the taste. Otherwise, malt and some typical Christmas spice really come into play. Not much else here and one I don’t need to jump for anytime soon.
