pivnizub (8580) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 22, 2011
Bouteille: Clear, ruby-amber coloured, small off-white foamy layer; light to moderate, but all in all restrained, dark-malty nose with almost imperceptible traces of roasted malt; light to moderate sweet-bitter flavour, light bodied for a beer of 5.1%; mild sweetish and toasty finish with a subtle metallic taste. Not so great......

Grima (2035) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - DEC 21, 2010
330ml bottle! The beer in the glass is dark brown with slight reddish head. The smell is subtle, almost even neutral. Only a slight roasty malty aroma comes through. Starts roasty, nutty, minimally sweet, but all very subtle. Nothing comes through very much what the whole would do well, however. The aftertaste shows roasted malt, subtly sweet and very short-lived.

jaghana (3501) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - MAY 14, 2010
Bottle 33cl. A brown ale very clear with low carbonation and medium head. Smell is typically on amber ales kind of and spicy (sweets, caramel, anise ..). Aroma is mostly on amber malt side and pleasant, caramel like, high astringency at the finish. The beer is oily, hop character is grassy and medium bitter. Not a bad beer, not too alcoholic.

Mklein818 (172) - Etterbeek, Virginia, BELGIUM - NOV 8, 2009
Best way to describe this is "not bad for ABInbev". Very little to distinguish it as an Xmas beer, no noticeable spice or uptick in flavor aside from some faint caramel notes.

thebeertourist (4659) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 19, 2008
Bottle. Mahogny with a small tan head. A hint of hay and roast. Sweet and roasted flavours. Rather flat. Boring, boring, boring.

BelgianBeerGal (3016) - Dayton Area, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2006
Looked, smelled, and tasted like a normal dark beer. Can’t really detect any "Christmas" character. No surprises either good or bad.
