zacgillbanks (1860) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2012
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Inky black with a thin brown head. It has very warming liquorice and chocolate flavours followed by spice (ginger?) and slight sour red fruit on the finish. A great spicy Christmas beer!

Pours inky black with brown medium compact head that holds well; fruit cake , bourbon and fig aromas; chalky dry finish with alcoholic burn. Great beer but its an imperial stout without a doubt and I was hoping for a Belgian beer - a quad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pentaz (949) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2012
Bottle. Pours black with average long lasting tan creamy head with nice lacing. Aroma is dark toasted malts, candy, ripe pear, banana, dark chocolate, molasses, spices. Taste is medium sweet and bitter. Body is full, texture is creamy, carbonation is average. So dark and heavy that it almost resembles a stout.

thewolf (10783) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2012
Bottle, bought @ Kihoskh, Cph. Pours deep black with a lovely, staying, creamy, beige head. Aroma has mild roasted malts, chestnut, chocolate, softly vinious, cardemum, coriander. Medium carbonation, lovely creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has a bit of a vinious bite, but also wonderful cocoa and Nutella. Piney, light roasted bitterness. A touch of yeast. Nice.

Strong. Doesn't hide its ABV well. A little too barley wine esque for my tastes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft at rustico Arlington. Pours black with a thick tan head. Raisins and plums in the nose. Add some prunes to mix and you have a fantastic brew. Warming alcohol finish.

Malty syrup flavor, spices, chocolate, licorice, vinous, some tar, dry hops, floral, orange peels, earthy notes, toffee, some leather and some sweet licorice. Good stuff!

EvanFriend (265) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Very smooth. Somewhat like an imperial stout, but with a festive, spicy finish that really defines it. I like Mikkeller in general, and this beer shows to me that they can do more than IPAs. Quite good.

FaithHealer1 (358) - SCOTLAND - DEC 20, 2012
Keg at Friends of Ham. Pours an inky black, small bubbly head. Aroma is liquorice, spices (clove and juniper), some coffee and chocolate. Taste is similar - really nicely balanced. Medium-full body, low carbonation. Just very nicely balanced and really tasty - like Pannepot, but closer to my tastes. Very nice.
