umich03jm (2178) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - DEC 11, 2014
Bottle. Black pour with a 1 finger head that fades to a thick ring and leaves minor lacing. Aroma is a nice mix of peat smoke, dark chocolate, ash, and light black licorice. Tastes pretty intense. Dark roast, moderate smoke, some charred wood, and dark chocolate. It’s intense but no noticeable alcohol. Medium to full body. Pretty nice stuff.

AirForceHops (3526) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 13, 2014
11.2 oz bottle purchased at 7-11, Kittery, ME. Pitch black, tiny tan head, no lacing. Aroma is cocoa powder, licorice, soy sauce and weaker roasted tones. Flavor is mostly the same as the aroma, mocha, ash, lingering licorice after the sip. Body is medium, almost full. Molasses sticky texture over the palate. Has a mild Christmas spice hiding underneath. Good but not quite top tier.

Hopmaestro (194) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2014
The aroma is thick and musty from roasted malts, cocoa powder and an almost ashy and dry scent. The taste is spawned directly from Santa’s boots, with a sharp roast transforming into a liquorice sensation. There is also a sweeter presence, but the overall sensation is robust and thick Imperial Stout. Very delish this one

wihlan (341) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2014
Flaska från systemet - Maltig arom med en hint av whiskyfat. Mörk som natten med brunt skum. Fyllig i kroppen med tydliga brändatoner och en viss eftersmak av ekfat. Silkeslen!

Huge chocolate taste on this one. Great pour. A very heavy, tasteful stout.
