Palme (3163) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2014
0.75l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. It has a nice medium sized dense almost creamy looking head on top of a clear deep dark ruby red warm body. Looks quite good in the glass. Not to extreme on the nose. I get a nice little malty sweetness with a faint fruitiness touch and a hint of yeast. Quite mellow and mild. It feels light oily in the mouth and the carbonation level is small and prickling on the tongue. Soft watery coffee essence flavored and other than that I have to say that this was surprisingly neutral in the taste. Sugary sweet and light malty, other than that this was quite a neutral tasting (and dare I say a bit boring?) one. 18.12.2013

Joakgust (825) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle, 75cl - Clear copper brown beer with a large beige head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel, spices, red berries and herbs. Flavor is malty with notes of caramel, yeast, nuts and spices. We’ll balanced and fruity Christmas beer.

Moravius (383) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2013
Flasche vom Bierzwerg-Online-Biershop. - Dunkles Rotbraun. Volles, dunkles Malz, leicht herb und nicht süß. Brotkruste, Pflaume und eine deutlich hervortretende, eigenartige Note wie von Moos. Pikante Säure. Im Abgang kräftige Röstmalzbittere, krautiger Hopfen und wieder der leicht kühlende Effekt der moosigen Aromen. - Ungewöhnliches, mutiges Weihnachtsbier aber gewöhnungsbedürftig.

trekkinando (17) - - DEC 26, 2013
Bottiglia a casa. Schima abbondante rosata. Colore mogano fluida. Aroma intenso di malto arrostito che copre tutto il resto. Gusto non molto intenso leggera astringenza e finale anche troppo amaro. Corpo pieno ma amaro troppo eccessivo.

DuffMan (6462) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle, Christmas dinner with in-laws. Medium brown, reddish copper highlights, light beige head that leaves coils of lace. Aroma is musty yeast and dark fruits. Rustic yeast opens the palate, leading into raisins, light cocoa, light marzipan. Not as complex as I had hoped, but nice enough. Leaning toward an abbey dubbel in character.

pintbypint (2542) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 25, 2013
750ml green bottle. Pours a reddish brown colour with a small tan head. Nose has some lemon and grass hop notes. Flavours of chocolate malt with a dryish finish and a bit of yeast, chocolate and light hop note. Overall a bit lighter than I was hoping for, seems a bit thin at times. Still a decent strong dark Belgian ale that drinks pretty easy for something over 7%.

Frovigalning (2908) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 25, 2013

hirigalzkar (2229) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle. Nicely drinkable christmas beer with mild notes of chocolate, fruitiness (from the yeast) and some orange from the hops. Simple but nice. Soft carbonation. Feels a bit weaker than 7,3abv.
