Bov (9443) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 23, 2013
courtesy of Antonio Ruiz - clear dark red-amber beer with a persistent beige foam left; the aroma of nutmeg dominates leaving notes of honey in the background; full-bodied and pretty sweet; fizzy, gently bitter and with a fair dry spicyness in the finish nicely balanced by the honeyish tones

laiti (5629) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 28, 2013
66 cl bottle @ Amsterdam, Helsinki
Aroma has cinnamon, some ripe fruits and distant floral notes. Flavour is rather strong on cinnamon. Also some ripe fruits, spices and floral notes. Yet another too spicy Christmas beer. Decent.

JanLaursen (3063) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2011
Tap. Deep chestnut colored beer with a diminishing brown head. The aroma is sweet, dark fruity and spicy. Taste is sweet malty with quite some caramel and notes of plums, brown sugar, chocolade leading to a mellow finish with a harsh dash of nutmeg, that gets a bit annoying after a few sips. Medium body, soft carbonation.

jesperhammer (2865) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2011
26-JUL-2011, botte(s) @home. I taste the 2009 and 2010, side by side. The 2009 has spend most of it’s live in the fridge whereas the 2010 has lived in my "beer cellar". Clear brown with beige head. Loads of honey here. Spicey and sweet. Charamel, honey, and sweetness. The quite high alcohol level gives the beer a fine body with low carbonation making it very easy drinking. The 2009 is fresher and cleaner than the 2010 indicating that storage conditions in my "cellar" are somewhat short of perfect. :(

Koelschtrinker (10480) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 17, 2011
Würziger Antrunk, mild und kräuterartig. Auf mildem Niveau wird das Malz vollmundiger, auch die Kräuternote nimmt zu und wird hefig. Leicht bitter, minimal nach Zimt, im Abgang malzig-herb, weiterhin eher mild. Zu keinem Zeitpunkt wirkt das Bier intensiv, alles bewegt sich auf einem mildem Level. Harmonisches Weihnachtsbier dem eine intensivere Würze nicht schaden würde. Test vom 27.9.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 7,8,7,7,6,7 - 7,10

Clear red brown with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, spicy and honey. Flavor is rather sweet. Light bodied. Soft and sweet finish. 191110
