bu11zeye (12147) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 9, 2015
(750ml bottle) Pours a murky brown with a small beige head. Aroma of pine, anise, tobacco, dates, allspice nutmeg, and cinnamon. Flavor of pine, allspice, caramel, nuts, and anise with a dry finish.

ABS (694) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2015
Bottle from Systembolaget. 9.1% version. Pours brown. Medium amount of tan to light brown head. Prunes, dates, alcohol, smoke/peat, chocolate, coffee and hint of vanilla nose. Medium, almost borderline thin body. Dry mouthfeel. Body and mouth feel reminiscent of a dry stout. Bitter. Not much sweetness. Smoke, bitter chocolate, coffee and some roasted malt flavour. Lovely smell, but pretty lackluster in my opinion.

McNeillR (1670) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 9, 2015
Oddly bright brown/dark ruby with a greenish ringed head. Heavy breath of clingfilmed christmas pudding and light festive spice nose. Initial taste is crusty berry, fruitcake and pushed along by the ABV. Carbonation is a bit busier than previous years, mouthfeel rich creamy. Finishes light chewy spice and cherry sweetness.

Bottle, 10pm Curfew Tasting

Bottle at Craig’s. Pours clear dark brown with a thin beige head. Aromas of dark sugar, clove. Taste is sweet. Finishes thin. Hope it picks up with a few years on it.

Rune (9216) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 25, 2015
Thanks to djoeye for sharing a 330ml bottle, 9.1 % abv. Pours a dense fawn-coloured head. Opaque red-brown coloured body. Inviting aromas of brown malts and herbal hops. Semi-sweet flavours of brown and black malts, caramel, coffee, chocolate, added by a touch of cinnamon and followed by leafy hops to the ending. Well bodied. Peasant on the swallow (Tromsø 22.01.2015).

djoeye (2260) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 23, 2015
Clear red brown beer, beige top. Aroma; caramel, milk, and maybe Mikkeller lost his christmas fruit cake into here. Taste; hops, milk, spices and more spices, cinnamon, apple, chocolate, leaves - good body, rich - and finish is quite dark with leaves and chocolate into it. Drink a fruit cake.

MikeKeller (910) - Kemi, FINLAND - JAN 19, 2015
330 ml bottle bought from Systembolaget. Opaque dark brown beer with a bubbly beige head. Sweet syrupy and roasty malty aroma and flavour has some spices. Soft mouthfeel. Some alcohol in the aftertaste and a bit unbalanced as well. Rating #900
