Not bad, but there are considerably more that are a lot better. Indeed, this is really a quad -- strong dark fruit notes -- and there truly is not much going on with Christmas spice. Approach it as such, and it's pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

An excellent winter beer, a rather strong one, but it has loads of tastes inside it. Some spices, some bitterness, some sweetness. I really love this brew.

Bottle, the 9.1% version. Dark brown with a beige head. Aroma: knäck, malty, fruity, roasted nuts.Taste: knäck, malty, fruity, spruce, some kind of candy, spices. Quite full-bodied. Not my favourite year.

arsol (518) - NORWAY - JAN 2, 2014
Mørk brun med høyt beige skum. Lukter plomme/sviske, krydder og malt. ikke mye fylde og lite kullsyre gjør at denne ølen skuffer litt ift. forventning.

Bottle. Pours a muddy amber-brown color with a head. Apple and coffee on the nose. Chocolate and apple flavors, with roasted malt and spices. Quite sweet and the alcohol is well hidden.

radagast83 (4439) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Draft at Rustico - Alexandria. Poured a dark-amber-brown color with a medium, fluffy lasting head. Aroma was nice light roasted malts with touch of spices and a earthy hop hint in the back. Flavor was chocolate malts, sweet notes. Pretty creamy, very tasty.

Armadill0 (255) - FINLAND - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle. Dark black brown, foggy. Minimal light brown head. Aroma has coffee, smoky wood and tobacco. Taste has liquorice, tobacco, chocolate. Turns a bit sour on the aftertaste. Very smooth otherwise. Alcohol is wonderfully hidden. Taste is a bit off in the big picture, but well worth it still.

mmahut (902) - CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 31, 2013
Pours in dark amber color with huge foam. Aroma is nutty, low coffee, roasty, light caramel too. Taste is toffee sweet, woody, low bitterness. Body is flat, low carbonation.

FatPhil (9135) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 30, 2013
Tap (Pudel Baar, Tallinn)
Nice dark red, tight keggy tan head. Massively sweet toasted marshmallow aroma, burnt on the outsides, portends some heft octane-wise. Remarkably light body in the mouth, smooth and sweet, gently prickly carbonation. Woh, messy on the swallow. Not just alcohol, some harsher heavier chemicals too, estery in places. Anna even gets banana. Taste is rather absent after that. Sweet caramel, alcohol. Absolutely no idea what it’s trying to be, so no idea how long I should leave the bottle before cracking that open. This ain’t good fresh, but it’s not saying "I’m raw, age me" either. Finish papery old hops, dirty. Later, it gets weirder. I get some of the banana Anna mentioned. And I even get Play-Doh. Took another point off overall as I was too weirded out by it. Not good.
