McNeillR (2023) - 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 (10006) - 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 (2886) - 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. [33cl brw btl, abv9.1%!, B@Systembolaget, BB26/08/19, shared with Rune, T@AlemanuensisSession]

MikeKeller (926) - 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

angel77 (1918) - oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 8, 2015
Botella de 75 cl de el rincón de la cerveza tomada en el momento el 06-01-2015 en Belmonte. Con fecha de cons pref. para antes de 07-08-2023. Color casi negro con bastante espuma beige oscura que desaparece hasta quedar solo pequeño anillo. Aromas y sabores de maltas tostadas y caramelizadas con toques especiados y algo quemados. Cuerpo medio de 10.9 vol con buena sensación alcohólica. No esta mal, algún que otro recuerdo belga con unos toques especiados y tostados con un final amargo suave. Bastante buena, para repetir.

60minuteman (1145) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Aroma of spices, pine tree, fruits, malt. Nice Christmas ale. Tastier than Corsendonk and ingredients are blended nicer together than the Mad Elf. Clean finish, malts, slight roast and spices. More tree.
