Bottle. Dark ruby-copper pour with a short tan head. Aroma is over the top ginger, cinnamon and clove. There’s also a potpourri type aroma. It smells like the artificial "holiday" aromatics that stores spray to embrace the holidays. Taste is on par with the aroma - big cinnamon, clove, ginger and nutmeg. The flavors become a bit outlandish after a while and this beer then becomes over the top. Too much spice, in a nutshell. Body is medium with a slick carbonation. Ends with more big spiciness, sweet malt, dried fruit and caramel. Not my cup of tea, at all.

22 oz bottle. Woah. Christmas distilled into a bottle. This one was great. Poured a medium amber color with a small white head. Aroma was nutmeg, cinnamon, other Christmas spices. Flavor was about the same with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger. Quite a good beverage!

Habanero (3955) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2010
Bottled. Pours amber with a medium sized, beige head. Spicy nose of cinnamon, cloves and notes of candied peel. Sweet flavour with malt, caramel, nutmeg and cinnamon. Ends up more dry. Medium bodied. Maybe a little overspiced howewer an OK christmas brew.

22oz bomber. Dark brown pour. Cakey / ginger bready aroma. Ginger bread cookies with icing/glaze flavor -- bready cookie malts. Dry with distinct cinnamon aroma. Ginger and cinnamon are apparent in flavor. Overall, excellent spiced ale.

HenrikSoegaard (13087) - Randers, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2010
Bottle. Creamy off-white good mostly lasting head. Orange colour. moderate malty and hoppy very spicey aroma. Corinader dominates aroma. Moderate bitter light sweet flavor. Powerfull ginger notes. Average moderate bitter finish. Ginger is overwhealming. Oily palate. Not my style.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 12, 2010
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.
