Travlr (9998) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Draft at Churchkey. Dark hazy golden color, thick off white head, massive lacing. Aroma of Christmas tree - orange, pine, light spice. Taste is bitter start to finish with more orange peel. Nice stuff.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 11, 2011
Im Antrunk ist das Bier aromatisch hopfig, natürlich, vielfältig. Der Hopfen weitet sich aber sogar noch aus, dabei nimmt er an Herbe zu und ist so nicht mehr der alleinige Taktgeber. Weniger bitter, auch die Herbe ist im Vergleich zum Hopfen dann doch eher gering. Etwas fruchtig und grasig, zudem sind Honignoten erkennbar. Vollmundig hopfig, im Abgang verfliegt er aber merkwürdig schnell und hinterlässt keine bitteren oder herben Noten, das Bier ist minimal grasig. Ein durch und durch auf den Hopfen ausgelegtes Bier! 12/12/11/12//12

BeerandBlues2 (9431) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Tap. Pours hazy ruby with a medium, creamy white head, medium retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is citrus, pine, resin, and spruce hops, light biscuit malt, fruity esters, and spicy alcohol. Flavor is spicy alcohol, medium malt, heavy hops, moderate bitterness, and a dry finish. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation.

FatPhil (9135) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 24, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2012 1.5L bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki, Olutopas Pikkujoulu 2011) - shared by someone generous - thanks! (6:3:7:4:13=3.3)
6 Super sweet mandarin peach and toffee aroma.
3 Sludgy, but we were at the bottom of the bottle, after many pours.
7 Exceptionally toffee-ey taste, lots of fleshy fruits too.
4 Full, sweet, sticky body. Again, not aided by being at the end of the bottle, but if Mikkeller think it’s a good idea to put beer in bottles this size, they’ve got to expect people to judge it after it’s been tipped up 20 times.
13 Don’t get me wrong, this may have been unclean to the eye, and stodgier on the tongue than what the guys who cracked it open for, but by no means was this unpleasant, it was very drinkable. Covered the alcohol well.
Rerate: 1.5L bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn) (6:4:6:4:13=3.4)
From the top of the bottle this time - and it’s a lovely clear red. Apart from that difference, it’s mostly the same as before. Things related to teh slidginess are gone, and the toffee aspects too - this is drier. A real zingy bitter bite, but also smooth. Tasty - I like it, but it might be a little bit too agressive in places.

TwoSipDip (8948) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 10, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2012 Bottle @ Bull & Bush Christmas beer tasting. Hazy, golden orange appearance with a white head. Spruce, pine, spicy aroma. Spicy, minty, spruce, piney hoppy, toasty malty, slightly fruity flavor.

daknole (8913) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 16, 2010
Amberish pour. Citrus hops, honey, and spices. Flavor is dominated by hops but has enough malt to balance it. Pretty good stuff.

hopdog (8796) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2009
1.5 liter bottle. Poured a medium and cloudy amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of citrus, some fruitiness, and floral hops. Tastes of the same floral hops, some pine, citrus, toastiness, and caramel. On the hoppy side.

Sammy (8384) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 3, 2010
1.5 litre bottle, for Americans that’s twice the size of a good bottle of Scotch. I was not expecting it to be so hoppy, and good hoppy, with a ittle spiciness in the seondary. The aroma is the same. Good mouthfeel. Yellow with huge bubble head, lacey. Yeast comforting in the finish. High alpha. This is the final beer of the night, and closer to sipper. From Half Time.

GT2 (8250) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 6, 2011
Tap at Churchkey. Hazy light orange with a diminishing whiter head. Nose is very interesting. Herbs, sage, chamomile. Similar to Stillwater Cellar Door. Nice floral component. Taste is quite nice: big bitterness, lavender, powerful soapy hops. Even sweet orange juice in the nose Overall great stuff. Doesn’t feel like "Christmas ale" which is nice. Super hoppy, nice garden herb character. Yum. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Magnum shared by AlchemistZ at the 18th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering. Thanks! Pours a hazy amber color with a large creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Very dry aroma with notes of wheat, earth, spice. The taste is sweet wheat, coriander, other spice, vegetal, honey and floral notes. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Interesting and refreshing. Nice beer.
