SPDickerman (991) - 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.

Black with dark brown head - malts and some spices in the aroma - there is some malt sweetness, but there is olso some coffee and roasted malt with some spice in there as well - Good malty and spicy ending with some alcohol heat in the back - this was very good

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 6, 2013
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.

The aroma is awesome, fruit, caramel, toffee. The appearance is like an inpy stout, bjet black, tan head. The flavor is fruit, candi sugar, brown sugar, bready. The finish is sweet, fruity, pine needles. Medium/thik to thick in body. Awesome.
