yngwie (13617) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 19, 2012
Bottle, 22oz. A semi-clear, dark brown beer topped by a small, beige head. Raisins, spices, gløgg-spices that is, dark malts, caramel hints, generic dried fruits, some woody notes and a touch of caramel sauce. A vinous touch too. The flavor is mostly spiced, in a really nice way, still it’s quite balanced, with enough maltyness to deal with the spices. Caramel sauce and some hints of dried fruits. A really pleasant spiced beer, seems like Hoppin Frog knows how to use the spices. 121219

Pours brown and hazy. Very christmassy aroma of gingerbread, cinnamon, cloves and bourbon. Flavour of gingerbread, wood, bourbon and plenty of spices too. For me this the almost perfect christmas beer. How could I not give a beer like this a good review?

valpoaj (634) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Sample FOBAB ’12 - Deep amber pour w/ small head. Aroma is very spicy with clove and peppery notes. Flavor is similarly spicy with some whiskey and woody notes in the background - pretty intensely spiced. Palate is similarly full and flavor is long lasting - not my cup of tea to be perfectly honest, but I seem to appreciate that this is well done regardless.

Bottle. Pours clear deep amber with a medium beige head. The aroma is lots of spices like cinnamon, ginger and cardemon. Light oak. The flavour is spicy and lots of malt. Fruity and light hoppy. A true xmas brew. Much like the unbarreled version. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
