jrodooo5 (1486) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Pours chestnut brown w/ a tan head that leaves a ring of lacing. The aroma is kind of sweet & malfy. The taste is malfy & relatively clean. It has a decent mouthfeel & does a good job of hiding the 7%. Overall it’s a nice brew but nothing to write home about!

Super dark amber with great head. Aroma is super sweet cherry-ish hay malt. Tastes like a Bohemian Pilsener with some cherry sweetness. Very smooth.

VDuquerroux (1224) - Airvault, FRANCE - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle, 75cL. Home. With dad. Traded with @Jaghana. Merci! A dark brown beer with light hues at the bottom of my glass ; medium beige head ; medium retention ; average lacing. Roasty caramel aroma, light spicy, fruity, herbs. Medium sweet. Medium body, thin texture, average carbonation, sweet lasting finish. Overall, OK drinkable christmas beer ; thin ; nothing foolish.

Calisky (2492) - ALSACE, FRANCE - NOV 13, 2014
Couleur cuivrée sombre, légère mousse. Nez malté orge et farine châtaigne, on dirait un bon marron glacé, atypique. Gout malté caramel, note d’épices et bonnes châtaignes en poudre. Bon corps. Fin assez longue et ronde en bouche. Simple mais efficace, plus goûteuse que les autres Pietra, et atypique dans les noël.

750ml bottle - A little bit pricey, but when looking at this beer from top to bottom it’s pretty tasty. The focus is centered on the malts, which is fine and what’s produced is a caramel and toasted malts. It’s probably even a little plain, but there’s no flaws noticeable and I’m sure a little bit fresher this might be really good. Now, it’s serviceable albeit overpriced.

NikkTwist (2714) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Bizarre. Finding the Christmas 2013 draft at Eulogy in July 2014 - so way past it’s due date. Tastes really boozy for only 7% ABV. Cloudy blonde caramel pour with a frothy white head that has reasonably lasting foam. Some lace. Feels like a full spicy blonde, but the spices are not as complex (cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg) as one would hope for in a noel beer. Body is somewhat thin but has a bit of creaminess in the finish. Possible there was a more complicated beer there that thinned away over time, but given this pour alone it seems way too simple. Classic flavors but nothing extraordinary. Obviously its past its prime and - at least on draft - did not improve with age.

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2013
750 cc from Wegman’s Collegeville. Pours dark brown, clear, with 1-finger frothy tan head. Nose is earthy vienna malt, brown sugar, mild hops. Tastes of earthy brown sugar, vienna malt, mild hops. Not terribly complex, but not bad.

jaghana (5491) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle 75cl, a clear amber beer with medium head. Nose is nutty and on toasted grain. Aroma is on toasted grains and cereals, very sweet, light spices, not that complex, nice malty side, low hops, a bit too sweet to be really drinkable, ok beer.

trapped (2240) - New York, TURKEY - MAR 19, 2013
Drought. Brown with reddish tint, small foamy beige head, doughy aroma, fizzy, fruity semi-sweet taste with a bitter coffee ending.
