Sigmund (4958) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 29, 2011
At Copenhagen Beer Festival. ABV was listed as 7.5%. Dark brown colour. Aroma and flavour of coffee, vanilla and cinnamon, well balanced. Very enjoyable - a beer I’d be happy to drink at the Yuletide. Well, at any time of the year, actually.

meerbier (1473) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2011
Bottle@Home, label said 7.5%. Cardamom, mint, malts and prune aroma. Opaque, light brown head, very nice lace. Mocha, light sweet, cardamom, light bitter, roasted finish. Dryish, very soft mouth feel. Very much X-Mas, technically very well brewed but I’m not a big cardamom fan.

GT2 (8283) - San Diego County, California, USA - APR 13, 2011
Tap at Ma Che Siete Venuti a Fà in Rome. Labeled as "Julebryg 2010 Coffee Porter." The pour is deep ruby to near black with a massive, light tan head with insane retention and massive lacing. Aroma is muted, coffee, cocoa, spice, mace, hazelnut, wet cinnamon. Taste is spicy, Kahlua, creamy coffee, rich chocolate, Godiva liquor, chocolate milkshake. Soft, creamy palate. Incredible. One of my favorite porters of all time.

JorisPPattyn (7818) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 2, 2011
Huge dark-beige head over very deep red-brown beer. Chocolate nose, mixed with fresh vegetable aromas (cucumber,...), later coffeebean-sweets. Hints at iron. Not very spiced in the nose. Spices arrive in the finish of the taste: coffee, mocha and black chocolate come first. Again coffee sweets. As said, spices are there in the finish, but difficult to determine which - apart from a peppery impression. Cinnamon I might well believe. Well-bodied, quite slick, some warming feel. Good winterwarmer.
