gyllenbock (5564) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2013
Bottle. Amber with a small head. Aroma and taste of apples, cinnamon, spices, toffee, nutmeg and some fruit. Not too sweet. A real "Christmas Beer".

Pours deep mahogany into a trappist glass. Tan head quickly recedes to nothing. Nutmeg and cinnamon aromas. Thin with pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon turning warming in the lasting finish. Slight bourbon afterburn is nothing special, but brings the base brew up a couple of notches.

@Gyllenbock: stor doft av ingefära och pepparkakor. Smaken är lika så. Mycket jul och juökryddor. Ganska tvålig men ändå klockren. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chalicemaster (111) - Ohio, USA - NOV 13, 2013
The flavor profile here is a surprisingly balanced malt and spice combo, almost comes across as a very serviceable take on a Belgian dark ale. The bourbon element is enjoyable, but in sweet, oily way - there’s very little in the way of genuine oak flavor here, or at the very least, it doesn’t come out that way in the mix. Well worth a try, however, and certainly in the upper tier of christmas beers that saturate the market this time of year.

Habanero (3046) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2013
Bottled. Pours amber with a medium sized, off-whie to beige head. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and notes of caramel. Sweet flavour that ends up more dry. Medium bodied, oily text. and soft carb. As the original version a little overspiced but an OK christmas brew.

Gurthnar (2667) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle. Aroma strong strong oily cherry wood, sandal wood, lime and lemon. Very oriental feel reministent of scented burning sticks. Weird, but interesting. Clear dark brown colour. Taste is oily, strong cinnamon. Now that i think of it, aroma had it too. It is overwhelming in flavour. Strong sweetness. Really unique spicy, even oily experience.
