330 ml bottle @ home. Rated @ 22.2.2010.
Pours a brown colour with a small creamy head. Aroma of mild spices and caramel. Christmas-like flavour of spices such as cinnamon, caramel malts and chocolate. Medium bodied with watery mouthfeel. Average.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 27, 2010
from old notes Cloudy crimson hue; billowy beige head. Nutty, cherry aroma with a bit of cinnamon spiciness and toffee. Bready sweetness, mildly acidic and tannic, finish tart with little bitterness. Feels slick, alkaline; moderate carbonation and medium body.

Growing tannins and alkaline qualities detract.

33 cl bottle.

mikkopen (827) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2009
330 ml bottle. Slightly hazy reddish coppery colour, thin off-white head. Sweetish, spicy aroma with some fruits and berries. The flavour is fruity, lightly spicy and sour, with a rather dry bitter finish.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1122) - FINLAND - JAN 10, 2009
Brown colour with a beige head. The aroma is malts and cinnamon. Spicy flavour with cinnamon, a bit yeast and malts. Maybe a bit thin and not my favourite beer, but it certainly has some Christmas taste in it.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - DEC 11, 2008
Cellared for a year. Dark reddish brown, slightly rocky beige head. Spicy, sugary aroma, sweet carrots, spritzy fruitiness. Wheaty flavor, fruitiness, mild spices, cinnamon and stuffy yeast. Tangy bitterness in the finish. Light bodied, but smooth carbonation. Overall a bit artificial, and theres really no point in drinking this when you got the 6,5% version.
