Att få kryddor att samsas är en skön konst och det är en konst som Mikkeller uppenbarligen behärskar. Mikkeller X-mas Porter 2013 är en fröjd från första andetaget till sista klunken - dess bruna färg är djup och lockande, dess arom är mustig och mångfacetterad, dess smak är... mums.

HammerTroll (529) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 14, 2014
Pitch black, medium sized tan head. Aroma is brown sugar, fruit, berries and lots of coffee. Biiig coffee kick, coffee all over the place. Full bodied with average to soft carbonation and creamy texture. Medium to heavy bitterness, extremely long coffee finish. Alcohol is not noticeable. This is just wonderful.
(Svije piva 0,33l bottle)

Taste follows the nose, roasty, spicy, some hot flavours, viscous mouthfeel, long spicy aftertaste. Quite enjoyable.

mattman522 (34) - New York, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Pours dark really dark with a thick head. Taste is serious porter. Burnt cedar and toffee. Anybody notice how it doesn't say "porter" on the bottle? Just "holiday ale"

SlovakSniper (3269) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 19, 2014
33 cl. Mindst holdbar til 27/08/19. Belle dentelle brune. Robe noire. Nez légèrement épicé mais bien rôti avec des arômes de caffè mocha, des parfums citronnés et des effluves de conifères. Les saveurs sont bien houblonnées, fraîches mais aussi subtilement épicées et modérément rôties. En bouche, j’ai l’impression d’un corps de moyenne densité avec un pétillement soutenu et une texture légèrement crémeuse. En finale, l’amertume des cultivars est saupoudrée de cannelle et de malts rôtis. Solide performance. Bien facile à boire. Le genre de truc qui se démarque au fil des gorgées.

Hereandbeer (14) - BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2014
Aroma is fairly mild; chocolate, cola, and a little woody. Amazingly thick and dark with a thick beige head. Taste is roasted malts, cola, coffee, and chocolate, with big bitterness to finish. Big body, smooth mouthful. Lovely.

angel77 (1052) - oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 27, 2014
Botella de 75 cl de cervezalandia tomada el 26-08-2014 en el parque de carrizo. Color negro con bastante espuma oscura. Aromas de maltas tostadas ligeramente especiados, café y chocolate. Cuerpo medio con buena textura ligeramente con gas y densa. Sabores tostados, café, chocolate y especias dejando al final un buen regusto durante un buen rato ligeramente amargo con toques quemados. Bastante buena, para repetir sin duda, mejor que las ediciones anteriores sin añejar.
