patricks110 (1780) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 1, 2013
Pours out a dark, viscous engine oil with a creamy short lived tan head. Purely opaque body with a few bubbles popping on the surface. The nose is supremely rich and heavy with big chcocolate malts, a woody earthen malt and a hint of fresh vanilla. A hint of booze and just an incredibly rich aroma. Sugary and candied malts with a rich chocolate malt, earthy roasted malts with hazelnuts and vanilla. Rather smooth with a hint of alochol heat on the finish. A really good beer, but it could use a bit of ageing.

mcberko (7245) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 30, 2012
750mL bottle, pours a near-black with a medium tan head. Aroma of Xmas spices, burnt caramel, some burnt cocoa and some charred malt. Flavour follows the burnt aromatics, with burnt molasses, some sherry-like oxidation, burnt caramel and a bit of a smoky quality. Quite heavy, burnt and somewhat spicy. The burnt qualities work well actually. Great stuff.

Bottle, Beer Ritz, Leeds. My 1600th rating, yo ho ho. Deep dark brown pour with a fading yet persistent muddy tan head. Sweet candy nose of dark fruit , xmas cake, and booze. Creamy, slick mouthfeel. Rich boozy and warming .Great festive sipper for sitting next to the christmas tree with the rain lashing against the window. Essence of the season.

TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Bottle from Bottlewerks. Dark brown-black, oily pour with a medium, persistent beige head leaving heavy lace. Nose is chocolate covered cherries, chocolate liqueur and a bit of black licorice. Heavy, smooth body with light, very fine carbonation. Chocolate, vanilla, licorice, cherries and a bit of pine hops. While the swallow is sweet, the finish is more balanced, with sweet chocolate and bitter pine hops and some woody umami. A delicious treat for the Holidays.
