floydian1 (902) - FNQ, Australia, - DEC 25, 2012
Shared bottle (75cl) on Xmas Day with Christmas pudding. Opaque very dark brown pour with a thick creamy beige head and particles at the bottom. Aroma is burnt brown sugar, dried fruits (cherries mainly), alcohol and soft spicy hops (subtle liquorice). Taste is sweet and vinous with an alcoholic presence and soft spicy hop bitterness. Palate is full bodied with a sticky rich texture but it is not too sickly sweet and surprisingly drinkable given the ABV.

17thfloor (2429) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Rating from 2011. Not my favorite of the bunch. Bit dry and fizzy with aggressive spicing. Think it’s the first time I’ve opened one of these the year of though.

Yorker (1103) - Herning, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2012
75 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with a tan head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is dark fruit, chocolate, orange peel, vanilla, and a little spice. Flavour is dark fruits, subtle spices, orange peel, roasted malt, and liquorice – with a slightly bitter finish. ABV is pretty well hidden.

thornecb (4310) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Pours deep black into a snifter. Mocha head with medium retention recedes leaving spider lacing. Dark chocolate, raisins, vanilla and roasted nut aromas. Medium bodied with dark chocolate covered pit fruit upfront turning dusty and hot in the lasting espresso finish.

maley1 (733) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 3, 2012
On tap. Almost black pour with small tan head. Aroma of malts, caramel, cinnamon, fruits and chocolate. Taste of malts, spices, toffee, licorice and a hint of chocolate. Full bodied and creamy mouthfeel. Slight hop bitterness on the finish. Very enjoyable beer.

AshtonMcCobb (2356) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 2, 2012
75cl bottle thanks to onkelgobber. Pours opaque black with a slim but attractive head. The nose has nuts and praline. The taste has more hazelnuts, toffee, some spice, ginger cake. The palate is full bodied, with a lovely long texture that leans into the finish. Overall, absolutely gorgeous.

RexTalionis (2348) - FINLAND - NOV 24, 2012
Bottle 37,5 cl, BBE 31.08.2017. Pours dark brown with a thick creamy darkly tanned head. Huge amounts of lacing on the glass. Spices, dark chocolate, coffee and some dark dried fruits in aroma. Taste is dominated quite strongly with coffee at first. Malts and chocolate too in flavor and some hoppy herbal dryness in finish as well. Smooth, but a bit of the alcohol is pushing through. Somewhat earthy and spicy in aftertaste.

Tap. Pours dark brown with a nice brown head. Nose of raisins and roasted malt. Sweet flavour with malt and notes of cocoa, nutmeg and brown sugar. Medium to full bodied. Has a slightly bitter finish . A very nice christmas brew

Poured dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is dark fruits, some roasted malts and a touch of yeast. Taste is the same but reveals some earthy and caramel notes with a heavy alcohol bite. Subdued carb but very appropriate. Very nice for a cold night. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
