pentaz (952) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2012
Bottle. Pours black with average long lasting tan creamy head with nice lacing. Aroma is dark toasted malts, candy, ripe pear, banana, dark chocolate, molasses, spices. Taste is medium sweet and bitter. Body is full, texture is creamy, carbonation is average. So dark and heavy that it almost resembles a stout.

Strong. Doesn't hide its ABV well. A little too barley wine esque for my tastes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SPDickerman (881) - 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.
