COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This limited-edition winter brew will make its debut in October, but this winter celebration ale is worth the wait. Malted barley and chocolate tones define the traditional style, while the robust aroma and long, mellow finish will make this the perfect companion for your holiday adventures.

Aroma is musty with berries, some malty tones and bread. Flavour is rather sweet and malty with bread, some toasted caramel and sugar. Too sweet.

lusikka (6259) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2014
330 ml bottle.
Pours a dark copper colour with a white firm head. Aroma of sweet malts, some glue and berries. Flavour of toasted malts, yeast, glue, harsh grains and loads of residual sugar. Medium bodied, thin mouthfeel and low-ish carbonation. Unclean, raw and unpleasant. Not good.

tiong (3771) - Espoo, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2014
330ml bottle

Pours dark copper colored with a smooth white head. Aroma of bready malts, sweetish syrupy notes, caramel and toffee. Taste is sweet, sticky and caramely with notes of syrup, cardboard and toffee. Finish is sweet, sticky and a bit stuffy with some bready cardboardy notes. Feels a bit off.

Marduk (2733) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 3, 2014
330ml bottle. Dark copper color. Medium size, off-white head, stays. Caramel, malty, touch of alcohol in aroma. Grainy, sweet, candy taste. Messy and unbalanced.

FatPhil (9359) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 1, 2014
330ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Shitty strong lager aroma, just what the tramps like. Wallpaper paste, quite a few esters, but some acetone-like aspects too. Tastes just as bad. Horror. Sticky sweet malts, booze coming off. Smooth palate, decent carbonation. Dirty esters, chemical and harsh. Sweet and rough. Nope, do not want.

neepsntatties (1208) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle. Colour...clear amber with a thick off white head. Nose...roasty, malty and sweet. Palate...dry for a doppelbock, but that’s ok as most doppelbocks are too sweet for me! There’s honey and honey malt with heather and light spice. A decent effort!

Bozo_skeleton (502) - Grenoble, FRANCE - JAN 24, 2014
Apparence - Robe ambrée, tres faible carbo, petit collet cremeux fuyant, belle dentelle. Aromes - Malt torrefié, caramel et houblon folral. Gout - Le caramel et le sucre roux enveloppe la bouche, un final sur une amertume prononcée mais courte. Palais - Attaque douce sur le sucre, final relativement sec.
