Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2014
Bottle shared in London - many thanks to Kenny. Pours rich red-brown with a frothy, beige head. Enticing nose, some toffee, leathery fruits. Medium sweet flavor with rich bread, dried fruits, raisins. Full bodied with fine, smooth carbonation. Sweet finish with hefty fruitcake, leathery fruits, hints of cocoa, mild earthy bitterness. Delightful.

Desverger (2094) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2014
tap@Fermentoren, CPH - dark brown pour with a good sized tan head and persistent lacing. Roasted malty goodness, Christmas cake/pudding like, dark fruits and spice, brown sugar, some slight choc, and vanilla at the end. Lovely.

lamas (1360) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 11, 2014
750mL bottle. A murky light mahogany pour with a MASSIVE dark khaki head. Cola, plums, dark cherries, candi sugar, caramel, dark chocolate, roasted coffee, wintry spices, wood fire, and a touch of leather in the aroma. Goes down relatively thin to medium-bodied, yet soft & smooth. Caramel and candi sugar start things off taste-wise. A toasted breadiness follows. Some tangy dark fruits, cola, dark chocolate, and a roasted coffee bitterness finish things off. Earthy. Nutty. A fair amount of warming alcohol and plenty of wintry spices present from start to finish.

dcbeerslinger (28) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Definitely has that cola aroma and flavor, along with dried fruits, nuts and and a touch of roast and earth. A bit of an alcoholic burn, though the candi sugar definitely dries it out nicely. A decent beer for the winter; would drink again.

mikedR (1209) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JAN 6, 2014
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

thearmi (21) - Riga, LATVIA - JAN 3, 2014
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.

arsol (550) - 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.
