UPDATED: APR 18, 2015 At Cardinal Den Store Juleøl Testen 2014. Pours ruby red with small, off-white head. Aroma of cherries, red berries, and yogurt. Fruity-malty taste; raisins, quite some bitterness.

0,3l Flasche. Dunkelbraunes Bier. Riecht nach Röstmalzen und trockenen früchten, schmeckt auch so.

SB Mönsterås, flaska. Julmässig etikett. Till osten på nyårsafton lite bedövad i nosen. Choklad strömming!? Fikon aprikos russin. Perfekt kolsyra med vackert skum. Fikonen ut till vänster. Fin med Stilton och mörk chok. Värd sitt höga pris. Tuff kamp med Ängöls eklagrad om 2014 King of x-mas i Kalmar län. Tror denna vinner. Drag av Guinesssyndromet (Laphraoig...). För dyrt för mass, tyvärr.

Mahogany brown beer with a nice foamy head going to the sides of the glass. Aroma has red berries and dried fruits. Taste has chocolate, dried fruit and sweet caramel and syrup. Medium body with quite high carbonation.

GuideDogSaint (732) - Xiamen, CHINA - DEC 30, 2014
330ml bottle at Beer Station, Xiamen on 24/12/14. Pours hazy brown with a thin off white head. Aroma of malt, caramel and Belgian yeast. Sweet finish. Not much going on here, a bit disappointing compared to other Christmas beers.

Satyroneto (203) - BRAZIL - DEC 29, 2014
Cor marrom escura com tons rubi; espuma marfim de altas formação e persistência com bom lacing; Aroma de frutas escuras e um leve toque de nozes e álcool; Sabor de início maltado de frutas escuras, vinho do porto e licor de cassis com uma nuance de nozes no meio que evolui rapidamente para um fim de amargor tímido, alcoólico e um pouco picante que aquece a boca; retrogosto alcoólico e picante de duração mediana; Corpo leve e baixa/média carbonatação com um toque licoroso no final; muito bem equilibrada, mas achei que sua complexidade evoluiu pouco com o aumento da temperatura.

Fruity and a tiny bit malty. Pours a dark brown color with a very big bubbly heady that dissipates quickly. Taste is malty, spicy, and sweet. Carbonation is sharp and beer is medium.
