Pours amber brown with a generous off white foam. Aromas of malt, spice, nuts, dried fruit, and a little funkiness. Same in the mouth, complex and concentrated, with some animal notes on the end. Nice spiciness, nice balancing hops. Delicious Christmas beer.

On tap, Beergeek, Praha. Seasonal beer only available until mid- February! I need to hurry! Very deep brown color, low foam left nice lacing. Stronger than it feels, one is probably enough. I’m happy I caught it just in time, will look for it again next winter!

Turboninja (343) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 30, 2016
Bottle@home, from Wine Spot, Cleveland, USA. Strong sweet aroma of fruits like strawberry and brown sugar. Some alcohol. Dark amber color with small light beige head. Strong, complex, soft taste of darker, still bit sweet berries, some strawberry, banana and malts. A hint or rubbery notes. Some alcohol in the background. Balanced with wide taste spectrum and medium/long aftertaste with sweet malts. Medium body with light carbonation. Overall, different, still high quality product that suffers from slight artificial (rubbery) flavor.

EdKing (2265) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2016
Bottle from Wholefoods High Street Kensington. Colour is almost clear, deep red to chestnut brown with a off white to beige head which stays. Nose is fruity, strawberry, light Brett, caramel, bubblegum, toasted grains, light spice, light clove. Elements of a quad but with delicate fruit. Strawberry fruit is totally dominating. Really nice and unexpected. Taste is lightly hoppy, strawberry, light Brett yeast, bubblegum, toasted grains, dryish yeast, little acidic hop, little earthiness, candy sugar. Strawberry fruit flavour is delightful. This is a really subtle mixture of flavours with the berry fruit dominating. Delightful beer.

750ml bottle. Dark red-brown with one finger beige head. Fruity malty aroma with dried fruits, rasins, brown malts, spices and a refreshing light hoppy ending. Taste is dried fruits, bready malts, yeast, slight spiciness and light alcohol. Medium mouthfeel, medium-strong carbonation and medium lasting aftertaste with noticeable alcohol warmth.

Une belle brune recouverte d’une grosse mousse beige éternelle. Les odeurs sont de dattes séchées, herbacées et de sucre d’orge dans des vapeurs d’alcool. En bouche, c’est particulier au tout début, ça ressemble à des herbes médicinales. Ensuite, ce sont des fruits secs, imbibées d’alcool qui brosse le portrait gustatif. Le liquide est agréablement soyeux, aidant à la dégustation. Point par point elle ne m’a pas parue digne de mention, sauf qu’elle fût agréable à boire. (MA 06-2017) (1717-200116)

Cervesa molt dolça, es recorden molt els tocs a caramel i a sucre morè, té tocs a espècies. Cerveza muy dulce, se recuerdan mucho los toques a caramelo y a azúcar moreno, tiene toques a especias.

Sample from HO1K. Pours a medium caramel brown with an off-white thin head of foam. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Tastes of berry juice and caramel with a hint of cinnamon and spices. Very smooth. Hides the alcohol very well. Pleasant and enjoyable. Not the best I’ve had but I’d drink it again.
