4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours very dark brown with a small brown head (looks like a stout). Smells like chocolate oranges with subtle hints of pine and spruce. Taste is coriander spiciness, chocolate, hints of orange, and subtle hints of booze. Full-bodied with a slick texture and active mouth-carbonation, Mikkeller Santa’s Little Helper 2012 finishes with subtle hints of spice and sweetness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Serving: 750 ml. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours murky dark brown with a frothy light tan head. The nose is a little chocolaty with slight paper notes. The flavor is a little sweet with some milk chocolate, cocoa powder, plastic, light alcohol, and a touch of fruitiness. Full bodied and slightly creamy on the tongue with an almost chalky finish. Decent.
