DrSilverworm (6455) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 8, 2013
On tap. Keg is simply labeled "santas little helper", but it arrived straight from the distributors importer this season, so I’m assuming what I have is the 2013 version. Tastes reasonably fresh. Almost entirely hazy dark red brown color. Thin khaki head, leaves good dots of bits of lace. Very nice chocolate aroma, some winter spice. Bigger body, smooth lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Good moderate bitter taste, lighter sweet, light warmth in the finish, and moderate spice. Drinks easy for an 11% beer. Very good belgian strong christmas ale, one of the better ones I’ve tried.

KennethArd (236) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2013
Malty aroma like an old wet towel. Cloudy brown red. Sweet and sour taste with the alcohol too much in focus. I really hope that there was some kind of mistake in this bottle. I can’t believe it can be that bad.
