Bottled. I’ve got the seasonal variety ’Santas Wobble’, which according to their website was so popular they made it a regular and changed the name of it. Pours deep amber. Syrupy, fruity nose. Full bodied, malty and very sweet. Nice woody, spicy finish.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2010 2010-03-04, bottle 1+ years old, 6-4-6-3-13=32
Amber color, hazy; the head disappears quickly. Mild aroma of malt, caramel and alcohol. Malt flavor, medium bodied, lightly fruity; warming. Overall, quite boring.

2005-12-11, 6-5-8-4-15=38
Hazy reddish amber color. Aroma of malt, light raisins, some spices. Quite malty, with an evident wooden character (cask), caramel, and sweet liquorice. Quite strong bitterness, adapted to the beer. Warming. Emotionally not impressive, but very pleasant.
