PapaVillum (494) - Valby, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2013
25 cl på fad, 11 % ABV, nydt på Mikkeller Bar på Viktoriagade på Vesterbro, 17. december 2013. Brun/sort juleøl med flygtigt minimalt skum. Fantastisk duft af cognac, belgisk gær, julekrydderier. Øllet smager helt igennem uovertruffent. Cognac-/kokos-smagen giver dette bryg majestætiske afmærkninger, og smagen er svær at beskrive. Skal prøves! Mild, let maskeret syrlighed, sødme omsvøbt i belgisk gær-bitterhed. Indholdet af kulsyre giver igen denne øl en skjult støtte og er bare med! Neddroslet. Et mesterbryg! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Grzesiek79 (3292) - Radom, POLAND - SEP 9, 2014
Vintage 2012 in Cognac Barrel. Czarne geste i oleiste piwo z pachnacym koniakiem i armaniakiem zarazem. W smaku beczke koniaku od razu sie zauwaza pieknie to pachnie i smakowite mocne piwo, no wlasnie podwyzszony alkohol nieco tu przeszkadza w posmaku daje sie go odczuc ale naszczescie przychodzi finisz gorzkawy i mocno wytrawny ktory zaglusza go. Pozostaje koniakowy i drzewny posmak w ustach. Piana srednia i srednio trwala. Ciekawe swiateczne podejscie, polecam nie tylko na wspolke z Mikolajem:)

Alengrin (2351) - BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2014
Special edition of Santa’s Little Helper, elected best Christmas beer in Denmark. Has the same basic profile as the regular version but with sweetish cognac accents and sharpish tannins in both aroma and taste, as well as a dryer, more woody finish. Very demanding but rewarding ale but I liked the Grand Marnier version a little bit better. Undoubtedly a great provision beer.

haukur (1335) - 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

Leighton (11649) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2014
Bottle shared in London - big thanks to Ken for another one of these Christmas lovelies. Pours rich brown with a frothy beige head. Very well balanced nose, with notes of coconut, rich chocolate, ripe fruits. Big sweet flavor with rich, oily coconut, somewhat sugary chocolate, low bitterness. Full bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Warming finish with more oily coconut, dark chocolate, dark fruits. Super well balanced and deep. Excellent.

SlackerMads (1681) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown close to black with a medium sized creamy beige head. Good retention and lace. Sweet chocolate, lots of coconut, cocoa, light cognac notes, molasses, liquorice all sorts. Soft and smooth, really fucking pleasant and complex, looking forward to try the other BA versions. Medium/full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Can’t feel the abv. Great.

MrFecesious (1068) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2014
375mL bottle. Soon as this bitch cracked, my sinuses grew a boner. Giant tan cap on a dark brown body. Settles to a thick lace and easy 3/16" sustained base. Aroma of raisin, wood barrel, booze, vanilla, cinnamon, chocolate, plum, bready malt. Taste is sweet and not really bitter, but it is..? Palate is creamy and spice tangy. Great balanced finish.
