maneliquor (3469) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 3, 2013
Bottle from Craft Beer Co Islington. Pours dark chrestnut brown with a small, firm khaki head. Solid lacing left about. Nose shows heavy raisin and dark fruits, really reminds me of a Christmas cake pudding. Heavy, dark fruits, light wood and charred malts. Very creamy like custard. Raisins are huge. Christmas cake notes akin to rum n raisin. Lightly burnt malts and toffee. Great balance for quite a big beer. Alcohol is warming which I really enjoy but hidden very well. Very good stuff. Spot on when it comes to my palate

SPDickerman (1057) - Texas, USA - MAR 21, 2013
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.
