Kadakas (48) - ESTONIA - FEB 5, 2015
Pours to the glass with great white top but then goes as fast as it came. Smell really sweet, a lot of malt in it, reminds me aroma at the quality beer bar at winter time. Taste is very light, malty, can even feel a pine taste but not so sweet at all as you might assume from aroma. I can even taste some estonian spicy sprat at the end of taste, but not in a bad way, it is actually quite interesting.

Gethinbeer (2267) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - FEB 3, 2015
Mahogany pour with a frothy white head and clinging lace. Fruity, earthy aroma. Spicy malt, Christmas cake flavour. Well balanced with a tangy finish.

VDuquerroux (544) - Airvault, FRANCE - FEB 2, 2015
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A beautiful clear brown beer with many hues ; big off-creamy white head ; good retention. Fruity aroma (prune, grape), caramel, biscuit, roast, spices. Medium sweet, light warming background. Medium body, dry silky texture, high carbonation, warming finish. Overall, a nice fruity christmas beer pretty well balanced.

Grumbo (773) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle at the Beer Emporium, Bristol. Poured a deep amber colour with a good sized and quite solid off-white white head. Aroma of dark fruits, spices and malt. Medium sweetness. Low carbonation. Medium body. A good beer, dangerously easy to drink.

Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 26, 2015
Mahogany pour with a light beige head that lasts for days. Lots of cooked fruit and spice on the nose There’s also a bready character in there. A little warm on the palate but full of spice and bread notes with some cooked fruit. Solid but not especially exciting.

leghorn99 (74) - Livorno, ITALY - JAN 23, 2015
Si presenta nel bicchiere di un bell’ambrato carico con riflessi ramati, limpido; solido e generoso il cappello di schiuma, color ocra, cremoso e molto persistente. L’aroma non è di buona intensità: a fatica emergono sentori di caramello e biscotto, frutta secca, pera e canditi. L’elevatissima carbonazione è la prima cosa che risalta al palato, disturbando la percezione del gusto; buona la consistenza, il corpo è medio. Biscotto e toffee danno il benvenuto, c’è un accenno di uvetta e di frutti rossi, c’è il dolce dello zucchero candito. Il finale è sorprendentemente secco, con una lieve nota amaricante di frutta secca ed erbacea che non ti saresti mai aspettato. L’alcool (10%) è molto ben nascosto, ed è piuttosto l’elevata frizzantezza a rallentare la velocità di bevuta.

Pours a lovely big creamy head. Love the dark brown color. Initial taste is also very nice but what I don’t like much is the after taste. It is quite bitter and I prefer sweeter beers. But 10 % of alcohol warms you up nicely during winterand for that this is a perfect beer.
