2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draught at brewpub (25 cL). Dark and unclear. Carbonated and complex taste of the same elements that make out a Danish christmas cookie...sorry I just don’t get it. Bitter aftertaste. Decent beer but not my style - I tried this in 2005 and in 2006 at the brewpub and on bottle in 2006 - this is not what I would drink to a Danish christmas meal nor do I like it on its own - I do however acknowledge that it is qualitywise a good brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2004 [2003 Version 6.5% ABV] The aroma is spicy with notes of cloves. The color is an unclear brown and it has no head. The flavor is sweet and rather complex with notes of cloves, oranges, prunes, plums, and dry wood. The alcohol runs prickling over the tongue before it ends on a long aftertaste of dates and prunes. It has a nice palate. A good Christmas brew. [2004 version 5.8% ABV] This has a different spice combination than the 2003 version: An unclear deep red beer with a disappearing off-white head. The aroma is sweet spicy. The flavor is sweet with loads of cloves, cinnamon, and oranges. A real Christmas brew execpt for the cold serving temperature. [6/3/7/3/14]

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 11, 2009 (On tap) Beautiful, clear reddish brown with a small, creamy, off-white head. Sweetish, spicy nose. Good, full body with loads of malt. Fairly - but not overwhelmingly - sweet and some spicy notes that are a bit hard to pick out, but they could be: cardamom, cloves and all spice - or they could be an all different mixture! Also some fruity, berry-like sweetness. Very christmasy. 301105

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy brown-amber color. Nice aroma: malt, oranges. Quite sweet in the front; a lot spicy; then the caramel, and finally balanced by the bitterness. Good, but should be improved by a better hopping and, if possible, some fruitness. Sweet and spicy over all.
