NordicV (1095) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - DEC 16, 2012
En mörkt brun öl med ett tätt beige skum som dröjer sig kvar länge. Doftar av kryddor, rostad malt och choklad. Det samma i smaken tillsammans med en trevlig bitterhet som tillsammans med den gräddiga munkänslan dröjer sig kvar långt efter att man druckit färdigt ölen. Kan lätt tänka mig denna som julklapp under granen.

Idiosynkrasie (3623) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 15, 2012
750ml bottle. Pitch black colour with huge, thick, frothy to creamy, lasting, lacing, brown head. Nuttily dark malty aroma with herbal hoppy overtones. Very soft, creamy palate. Taste is minimally sweet nuttily dark malty, roasty, herbal hoppy overtones. Plain-vanilla, accurate Porter.

Ughsmash (7098) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 15, 2012
750mL bottle. Poured deep brown with a creamy, sticky, well-retained smoked tan head. The aroma picked up burnt chocolate, black malts, and a bit of coffee topped by dank pine resin and almost floral hops.. hoppier than I usually want from the style, but it was well done. The flavor found similar stuff.. bright, mostly piney bitterness and some fresh acidity over burnt chocolate and black malts.. lots of residual bitterness and grainy sugars on the warm finish.. tasty stuff. Medium-plus bodied and very bitter on the palate.. fresh and engaging.. very good stuff, but a little brash at times.

Benzai (7287) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2012 Sampled at OBER Kerstbierfestival 2012. Pitch black opaque color, small lightly creamy, fair lacing brown head. Smell and taste roasted and burned malts, coffee, moccha, earth and bitter. Heavy, strong, full. Nice enough but a bit too much coffee.

Habanero (2479) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2012
Tap. Pours a dark brown, nearly black and with a small, creamy tan head. Excellent lacing on the glass. Nose of roasted malts, spice and coffee notes. Sweet and spicey flavor with again coffee and chocolate notes. Quite a bitter finish. Medium to full bodied, oily texture and soft CO2. A very nice brew. ★★★★

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2012
Keg, BrewDog Birmingham, 12/12/12. Abyssal with a fine Manilla collar. Waft of soy, ozone, fudge, carob on nose. Tastes like Yorkie dunked in black coffee, jerky, grilled beef and aubergine flamed to hell, Minstrels, medicine, blueberries. Lingers with chipotle, chocolate, smoke like a fine cigar. Easily the beer of Xmas so far and my 50th but FIRST EVER draught Mikkeller. Unbelievable.

Alecwallace (155) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2013 Wow. Don’t normally go ya wards porters and was one of my styles to try for 2013. Coffee and chocolate all smoothly wrapped up in a beer that doesn’t drink like a 8% beer.
