St. Nicholas, aka Santa Claus, is a magical figure, the bringer of gifts and an icon of holiday spirit. Forgotten by most is his evil side kick and enforcer of ‘the list’. European tradition says while St. Nick is busy delivering presents to good little boys and girls, Krampus hands out punishments to the bad. A fanged, goat-horned bully, the Christmas Devil uses sticks and chains to beat the naughty children. Dark malts and aromatic hops create the diabolical spirit of this brew. It is finished with lager yeast and aged cold for no less than 30 days. This Imperial Helles Lager will warm even the darkest hearts. This season, replace the cookies with a bottle of Krampus. If he happens to pay a visit, toast to him with this devilish brew. Merry Kramp-mas to all, and to all a good pint!

Bottle to glass. Pale yellow orange, medium head. Pine aroma, some barley and hops. A bit . Taste is not great. Just a raw strong, in your face beer.

This isn't a total drainpour but I did dump it. A bopper of this is too much. It's just unnecessarily big and far far too sweet.

22oz bottle poured into snifter The Krampus pours a mostly clear bronze with a decent beige head that doesn’t last too long. The aroma pine and floral hops with a bit of caramel and bread. The flavor is mostly pine and floral hops with a touch of honey. Overall this is a pretty nice and unique beer.

Pours a pretty light color with a light soapy head. With less head than expected. Aroma is not super strong but piney. Taste is really resiny hops... piney. Not sweet. Finish is a bit soapy. Unsubtle. Carbonation is moderate and medium thickness. Eh.

Beerathon (1670) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Burnt orange with frothy head, lacing, and clarity. Pine, resin, sweet malts. Tastes better than it smells, because they is something off about the aroma that I can’t quite pin down (metallic in nature).

On Tap at 33 West Ale House (Dover, DE). Poured orange, clear, nice off white head and nice lacing. Aroma is hop forward combined with some malts and caramel notes. Taste is boozy, hoppy witha nice and balanced malty backbone. Nice beer, very enjoyable.

Bottle @ Three Notch’d Tasting. Strong stewed apple and spiced caramel aroma. Flavor of toffee bread. More apple. Hot boozy finish. Full body, oily. Pretty sweet. Not my thing.
