This bottle is at least 1 year old. Pours to a deep mahogany body with a rapidly dissipating light tan head. The aroma is sweet and aromatic. Lots of spices, but they’re not edgy ones. Smoother and sweeter. Perhaps a lot of candied ginger and holiday candles with a wreath kind of smell. Nutmeg is definitely there. The flavor is malty and sweet with dashes of nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, and candied ginger. No sharpness from the ingredients. Great flavors, but drinking a whole bomber of this may prove difficult. Medium bodied and smooth.

Nice dark orange color with small off-white head. The aroma on this is gigantic. A lot of cinnamon and spices. Flavor is good and spicy with a malty finish. It’s certainly very strong, but I can’t tell if it’s too much or not.

udflyerfan07 (173) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - DEC 10, 2010
Bomber. Poured a bubbly amber color with fluffy white head. Huge aroma of spices and just about anything that reminds one of Christmas. Taste is outstanding. Again, every flavor of Christmas, other then ham, is in this beer...cinnamon, peppermint, holiday cheer. Not for everyone, but I love this beer from my favorite brewery.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2010
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark copper/ruby red color with a small off white head. Aroma is of cinnamon, peppernødder, brunkager, christmas cookies, spiced christmas cake, peppery notes, cookie dough and some faint ginger. Flavor is of peppernødder, brunkager and other christmas cookies, spiced christmas cake, cinnamon, ginger and other spices, honey and some faint dark fruit in your first sip. The body is medium with a very smooth mouthfeel. This beer is just the essence of christmas in a glass. Its either a beer you hate or love. I love it!

beergodd1 (400) - Conneaut, Ohio, USA - DEC 6, 2010
Poured a Bright Amber/Red with a medium beige head. Sweet malt and huge spice aroma that is mostly cinnamon with a sprinkle of ginger and Nutmeg. Flavor is an absolute spice bomb. Tastes like chewing on a stick of Big Red. Some ginger and light malty sweetness as well. I Started liking Spiced Beers this year, especially Pumpkin Ales, and have always wondered whether there was such a thing as too much. I DID like this beer, but it did cross that line. I wonder if the BA Frosted Frog would Settle down the "Spice" a little?

Bragesnak (5395) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2010
From Voldby, DK. Bottled, 031210. Brown with beige head. Aroma of malt and spices. Flavor sweet of (much) cinnamon.

PorterPounder (6138) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 5, 2010
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 22 oz bomber. Pours a nice deep dark amber with a slight off-white head. Spice dominated aroma with heavy doses of cinnamon and a hint of ginger. Flavor is full of spicy goodness as well. Pick up cinnamon, ginger and orange peel. Back end reminds me of a gingerbread man. Has the potential of turning cloying....but it’s Christmas and its cold out - so it warms the belly. Mouthfeel is kind of gummy. Decent, but once a year is enough for this one.

Bottle: The aroma is loaded with cinnnamon (probably a little too much for me), moderate ginger, and some faint brown sugar. It pours a slightly hazy orangish-brown with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a thin ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts sweet with brown sugar and caramel. The finish has moderate-heavy cinnamon and light-moderate ginger. It basically tastes like a cinnamon and ginger cookie...but a little overspiced for my tastes as it starts to wear on me rather quickly. Medium bodied with somewhat lively carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel.

Deep amber pour with little head. Spicy, nutty, semi sweet aroma. Nice. Creamy mouth feel with a semi-dry finish. Flavor is raisin, cinnamon, nutmeg, semi sweet, malty, Belgian like (thought its a brown...is that the Ginger that does that?). Very nice. Everything u want out of a Christmas beer. Word. Really an outstanding job on this one. I think I’ve found my now favorite Christmas brew.
