(2) Not worth trying. Not a christmas beer - although - it is much better than a Tuborg - that being said - I expected more.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice persistent foam. Smells really comfortable hard roasted malt, nuts and caramel. Easy taste of caramel released in a deep fruity flavor of e.g. raisin, plum, cloves, hazelnuts and a little cinnamon. Slightly sour tang which may come from pine needles. It should definitely be served at 8-10 degrees, as many of its flavors are well hidden among all the other good, thereby risked disappearing at too cold serving. And it would be a shame, because this is simply a great Christmas ale.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Copenhagen 15/11 2014. 50 cl bottle from SuperBest. Pour reddish brown with slightly beige head. Dissolves fast. Aroma is faintly sweet - a little caramel and nuts. Low carbonation. Taste is spicy and a little soapy. Taste like Christmas cookies soaked in soap water (fairly strange mixture). You have to be very entusiastic about Christmas to enjoy this.

Bottle split two ways. Clear brown pour with a decent head. Some malt sweetness, some floral notes, light spices and some cereal.

500ml bottle - shared by Marduk - thanks!
Sigh, textbook christmas spice aroma. Amber, large head on pouring, mouldy spots when it settles. Just as textbooky christmas spices taste too. Just a simple beer to hold it up. Drinkable palate. Meh, gimmicky. Snore.

* Old rating, Many thanks to Simon for bringing this bottle from Denmark. Best before 01.10.2010. Mild-malziges, nett gewürziges Weihnachtsbier. Süffig-mild, malzig mit kräuteriger Herbe. Die verwendeten Zweige scheinen leicht holzig-erdig durch. Interessant.
