2012 ver. Bottle. Smells whip cream. Milk. Butter on fruit cake. Very boozy but not as strong as when it first came out last year. One year on it has taken a lot of the sharp alcohol taste off it; still a bit of heat. Great mouthfeel. Creamy and thick.

Bottle at home, 2013 Christmas party. Dark brown pour, thin white head. Plums and burnt sugar on the nose, light spices and orange, then a hint of yeast. Good flavour, rich mouthfeel, sweet finish. Lovely.

Rune (9226) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 17, 2013
From tap at The Bishop Arms in Copenhagen. Small glass served at the right drinking temperature. Coal black body with a dark red shade. Low head, dotted spots to the glassware. Dark malty aromas joined by a nice touch of Christmas spices. Rich Yuletide taste of anise, coffee, and chocolate on a moderate roasted backbone. Long bittersweet tail tingled with alcohol warmth. Great stuff that fits the holiday season. Enjoyed in a relaxing atmosphere. I’ve always liked visiting this place and even placed one of my books in their library. Thanks (Copenhagen 09.12.2013).

Well, let’s see how the leftovers from last Christmas tastes like. 75 cl. bottle poured in to a Trappist glass. Dark brown colour bordering black with a small, dense tanned head. Sweet aroma with dark fruits, caramel, brown sugar, roasted, chocolate, "Christmas spices", some banana. A boozy hint. Taste is sweet. Full body, creamy to thick texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes sweet with chocolate, roasted malts and spices. More booze. A rich, juicy Christmas beer - however, the booziness is a bit of a let down.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2955) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 18, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 At Asahiya’s Christmas party last year, a nice spicy stout like beer with a rich orange tinged head. It was interesting but you could feel the alcohol burn down your throat. Aged 1 year: Santa 2012: creamy slightly boozy nose, chocolatey. This has improved immensely over a year. It is way less boozy, more balanced chocolate velvety notes. Delicious. Some cheese gives me nutty notes. It is an exceptionally solid beer but still not super complex. Good stuff. Old rating 3.3 now 3.6

Dejlig sød kompleksitet. Helt sort. Tæt skum. Belgisk kompleksitet med kandisfylde. Minimal ristet, dejlig gær. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks good; a cloudy brown with light beige lacing. Smells of dark malt and chocolate with notes of light Belgium yeast and dark fruit notes. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth. Mouthfeel. Enjoyable.
