Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - DEC 15, 2006
Cask, Gardeners Arms, (Plantation Street), Oxford. Shiny dark copper, dense-as-can-be cap of tan foam, lingering and lacing tenatiously. A picture perfect pint. Soft farmy hops, a bit of clean malt. Pleasant aroma, though a little bit low volume. Silky soft palate. Farmy, resiny hops, coppery malt. A lovely winter seasonal. A wholesome, honest beer.

KnutAlbert (6100) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2006
Handpump, Hand and Flower, Kensington. Brown/reddish ale with small head. Full malt, but dominated by the hops - lemongrass, resin, which linger for a long time. Very refreshing, a great beer.

Dark amber color; thin frothy head. Simple aroma, light chocolate. Caramel flavor, creamy and a bit cheesy, light chocolate, with light sweetness; correct bitterness, with more chocolate in the end. Good.

Sobchak (131) - Skagen, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2005
(Cask, The Wharf, Aalborg) - Reddish brown colour. Fruity nose, and a fairly complex taste, with a soft maltiness and a fruity, slightly spicy bitterness, not mutch aftertaste though...

Ungstrup (29287) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2005
[Cask at Charlie’s Bar, Copenhagen] A deep red beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of berries. The flavor is sweet with notes of berries, toffee, malt, and spices - especially cardamom comes thru. But the body is thin.

Cask conditioned & on handpump at The Alex, on 15/02/05. Deep rich brown colour. Rich, malty, roasted malts. Very moreish - I really enjoyed this one & it didn’t last long before it was all gone either :)

chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2004
Reddish tawny colour. Restrained aroma, with a little malt, but nothing too. The flavour is dry and malty, Mellow, with a thin mouthfeel. Middle of the road. More autumnal than Christmassy, I’d say. Cask (handpump), Penderels Oak (JDW), Holborn, London.
