Vaiz (3555) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2011
Bottle at ACBF 2011. Black with a tan head. Aroma is spicy, yeasty and with coffee. Flavor is slightly minty, with licorice and spices. Quite smooth. Nice balance. Strange but nice brew.

Ungstrup (29837) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 24, 2011
Draft. A hazy dark brown beer with a lazing orangey head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and coffee. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of roasted malt as well as medium notes of coffee and sweet malt, and light notes of cinnamon and vanilla, leading to a dry and roasted finish.

Defreni (2645) - Husum, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2010
Flaske: Kulsort øl med et fint mokkafarvet skumhoved. Duft af sød malt og let julekrydret. Både kanelen og anisen kan anes men tager ikke over. Smagen er igen sødlig porter med en smule julekrydderi. Virkelig godt afbalanceret og dejlig at drikke.

FatPhil (9593) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 21, 2010
500ml bottle - at ChrisO’s - thanks!
5 Sweet sticky aroma, christmas spices unsubtle - a bit worrying.
4 Deed brown, off-white head
7 Initially sweet, but fills out with a bit of spice. Quite bold, but also balanced.
4 Soft palate, crisp carbonation. Wow - what a lovely chocolate cake finish.
15 ARoma initially seemed too sweet, but the taste is so full, and the finish is beautiful

jesperhammer (3049) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2010
20-NOV-2010, tap @Ekstra Bladets Juleølssmagning. Brown, beige head. Roasted with a lot of coffee. Quite spicey, dry and long roasted taste. Fantastic X-mas brew. This is how I like them. No need to make them all sweet.

Plovmand (6592) - Helsinge, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2010
Bottle. Pitch black pour with a creamy tan head. The aroma is chocolate, coffee, light spices and hard roasted malt. Mainly coffee and hard raosted malt in the flavour with some spicey notes and caramel. Very nice.

Rune (8484) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 17, 2010
500ml bottle, 7.5% ABV, thanks to Skinnyviking. Oily pour revealing a completely dark body under a dense, two finger, beige-brown head. Dark roasted malts to the nose. Flavoured with roasted malts and Christmas spices like cinnamon. A nice malt-accented Yuletide brew (hotel room, Copenhagen 06.11.2010).

ClubGonzo (4228) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 14, 2010
Tap @ Ølbaren, Copenhagen. This one just looks gorgeous: big beige head, deep brown body. Aroma is roasted malts, dark chocolate with hints of spices and peat. Taste follows suit, with some smokey tones and spices countered by a fruity layer of almost aerial, fluffy hops. Palate is full-bodied. This is a solid Christmas brew, just the way I like ’em - dry and balanced, yet spicy. Very nice.
