Azand222 (171) - Westminster, Colorado, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Bottle pours a dark reddish amber, with a light tan head. The aroma is of a lot of random spices, and alcohol. The taste is also full of spices, i get the belgian yeast. Overall quite festive, but not one of the best Mikkeller’s.

SinH4 (261) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 22, 2014
Black color with small beige head. Aroma is coffee like in a nice imperial stout, but also spicy yeasts like in a Belgian Strong. Taste is fresh and rich, mostly coffee and spices as well. Rather dry, but boozy towards the end. Very pleasing. Rich, but still not overwhelming.

BaroneBirra (262) - Gorizia, ITALY - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle shared at brew dog Bologna. Pours dark brown with creamy head. Rich aroma of sweet yeasts an caramel. Sweetness also in the taste: caramelized malts and chocolate. Ends with bitterness of coffee and alcohol. Complex and interesting, but not easy drinkable.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2014
750 from Wegman’s Collegeville. Pours hazy chestnut with tan head. Nose was caramel malt, hops, maple, figgy fruit. Tasted complex, dense on the palate, with caramel malt, big hops, fig, molasses, X-mas spices, and a dense palate heft that finishes complex and enjoyable.

bhensonb (11523) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Capped 750 from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of moderate treacle, candi, and some sort of near noble hop. Full bodied. Flavor is treacle, chocolate, and brown sugar over and above the treacle. Hop? Sure, but what? Maybe a bit of Belgian yeast/spice, but not banana for me. It’s a monster of flavor, but hard to decipher. Great drink.

marcus (6774) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle shared by my friend John. Pours near black with a modest tan head and a treacle and candy flavor. There is a hearty dark malt flavor with some candi sugar and a dry bitter finish.

brnandersen (2027) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2014
75 cl. bottle (10.9 % alc.) poured in to a Trappist glass, leftovers from last Christmas. My first Christmas themed beer of this season. Dark brown colour with a reddish tinge and a dense, tanned head. Sweet aroma with caramel malts, chocolate, toast, liquorice, dark, dried fruits, candid sugar and spices. Somewhat alcohol dense. Taste is sweet. Full body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes fruity with toasted notes, spices and alcohol. A bit to much alcohol to be really great. Nice winter warmer. However, lacks a bit bodily compared to some of the rich Belgian Christmas beers.

Söt väldigt god smak, doft av god choklad och karamell. Den höga alkoholhalten är personligen en betygssänkare. Flaska från Systembolaget. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Yorker (1347) - Herning, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2014
75 cl bottle @ home. Pours hazy brown with some sediment and an off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are caramel, spices, roasted malt, and brown sugar - with a slightly dry finish.
