Niall73 (1806) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2013
Bottle, best before 21/03/16. Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is rummy, with coffee, candy choc, fruit cake. Medium body, light carbonation. Its sweet, cakey with vanilla and choc, with coffee bitterness there too, and a light spice - as it warms up it just gets better. A treat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

haukur (1307) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - NOV 30, 2013
Draft. Cognac and oak completely dominate the nose. Velvety with layers and layers of complexity. Cognac is the first to hit you but then comes the orginal Santa. Caramel, toffee, fruits, spices. Just layer above layer. One of Mikkellers most complex beers. Truly awesome
