esox (1177) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 3, 2011
Dark ruby color, big head is beige. Chocolatey and coffeyish nose with resny hops and spices (orange peel, anise, maybe fennel). Some fruity yeast notes. Sweet, dark candy sugary taste, rum and some raisins hit the taste buds at first. Dark coffeyish and chocolatey finish with medium bitterness and spices. Sugary flavors are nice, but it seriously lack maltiness. Now the palate is somehow thin and slippery and the finish seems to disappear leaving only roasted notes and spice behind.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - NOV 10, 2011
Pours a clear and dark brown beer with a beige head. The aroma is malt, caramel, fruit, dried fruit, spices and alcohol. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is alcoholwarmth and sweetness. Overall an average beer with a high level of alcohol.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2011
On tap. Opaque dark brown with a small, rough off-white head. The aroma is a bit odd, a strange spiciness but also gluey with distinct alcohol. Full-bodied with dried dark fruits and brown sugars. Alcoholic finish. I bet age would do good to this. 041111

arminjewell (8582) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 28, 2011
Pour is hazy brownish with thin tan head, aroma brings notes of cinnamon, ginger, bready sweetness with some toffee, hints of chocolate, caramel in there as well. Taste is a mix of sweet candi sugar, toffee, and caramel, some dark fruit notes lead into spices with ginger and clove, finishes with a hint of bitterness and chocolate. Fairly nice but a bit sweet.

DruncanVeasey (7633) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2012
Sample with food pairing (Crunchie?), Spuyten Duyvil, Brooklyn, 17/12/11. Some raw booziness in the nose beneath chocolate coated raisins, light coal dust. Chocolate enrobed nut hints, weak roast. Didn’t pick up any spices. Too boozy/needs time.

fiulijn (16416) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2012
Draught at Ørsted, Copenhagen
Dark color. There is some chocolate and vanilla, but overall it’s boring.

shonobiwan (218) - Sound Beach, New York, USA - FEB 19, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2012 Long Island, NY - 750 mL bottle poured a dense dark brown with beige head and slight lacing. You can smell dark fruit as you pour this one. Aroma is of raisins, figs, dark roasted malts and some sort of spice. Taste is along the same lines it malt and alcohol taste are too over powering. Ok for a Christmas beer but I think the labeling oversells this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
