yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2010
On tap at Esbjerg Beerfestival. It pours a next to black body, only a reddish hue lightens it up. A tan head leaves curtains in the glass. Some bourbon-like (or some other booze) notes on the nose, heavily roasted and with good coffee aroma. The flavor has some coconut and vanilla, but only in the background. Sweet, heavily roasted with coffee. Full-bodied, smooth and warming in the mouth. Roasted, bourbon-ish finish. Quite lovely, maybe a bit one-dimensional, and not my idea of a Christmas beer, but I enjoyed it very much. 091023

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2009
It’s pitch black with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, coffeee, vanilla and little different Christmas spice, but not in a dominating way. The flavor is moderately sweet with notes of roasted malt, coffee, vanilla, the cinnamon is almost not there, but it’s dryness gives it away. I also find other Christmans spices, and I think this is a “Christmassy” beer in the right way, harmonic and nice without a the entire self of spices dropped into the brew.

Pinball (10920) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2009
tap at ølbaren black , smooth brown head. very nice roasted grains and toffee dominated aroma. flavor is strong toffee, roasted grains, christamas spices (browncakes) my rate might be lower than it should be bc i don’t like either browncakes or toffee, so not my kind of beer in that respect.
