COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ever got the idea that Santa likes to give out presents during christmas? Wrong! Mr. Saint Nicolaus or whatever his name is, likes to sit in his leather chair or or on the ice bear carpet, dipping bread crumbs in his cheese fondue and eats chocolate like Sylvester Stallone eats cottage cheese. And then Santa likes to drink Shameless Santa. A Belgian strong Red Ale, playing and using all the cheap tricks of the trade. Caramel malts, sugars, highly attenuated yeast profile, fruity novel hops as Mandarina Bavaria and Calypso. This is one greasy balanced beer that suits any situation involving Christmas, New Years Eve and any other event that involves roasted marshmallows.

Barea (153) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 17, 2018
Bottle from 100 piv. Aroma: dried fruit, caramel, candy sugar, spice. Hazy ruby color, long lasting huge white head, full body, oily texture, medium to high carbonation. Taste: caramel, raisins, little bit of licorice, alcohol, honey. Slightly hoppy in the end. Really like it.

Sødlig maltet smag med en let humle. Har også en karamelsmag. Lidt jul i det der minder lidt om brun sukker.

Relative déception avec cette Shameless Santa. Bien qu'elle réchauffe avec ses 10 % Abv et ses arômes liquoreux, celle-ci manque cruellement de complexité, de personnalité voire d'originalité. On s'en lasse donc très vite. Robe brun clair légèrement trouble, elle possède une mousse beige claire d'un cm d'épaisseur. Le nez est sur le caramel au beurre salé, la vanille et les agrumes. Le manque de complexité se fait dès lors ressentir. LA dégustation est d'ailleurs encore moins complexe à mon sens. C'est étrange, on ne ressent pas du tout les spécificités du calypso ou du Mandarine Bavaria. A croire que le brassage a fondu les arômes entre eux pour obtenir un maelstrom uniforme. L'attaque est sur un bon équilibre malt/houblon, avec un alcool déjà bien présent et des arômes liquoreux. La deuxième bouche est relativement linéaire avec un alcool un peu plus présent. L'arrière bouche n'apporte rien quant à elle. La troisième bouche monte sur l'amertume sans développement aromatique avant un final moyennement long, un brin épicé et sur un alcool toujours aussi chaleureux. En terme d'équilibre, on est bien par contre. Mais on a du mal à se passionner pour cette Santa, pas tout à fait shameless.

drjoeng (1497) - SINGAPORE - JAN 10, 2018
10%ABV. Belgian quad/abt. Poured out amber-brown. 28ºSRM. Nose is malt candy sweet and with a musty dusty aroma note. Mouthfeel is watered honey. Palate has barley toast, graham cracker, bread crusts. Malt palate is full-bodied and leans towards being bready. There is a thin pervasive sweetness that runs through the palate. Hop flavors are wood with a hint fo sap, incense and perfume. Finish is a little warming and boozy. Overall, pretty good and reminiscent of a Westvleteren 12.

Big 750ml bottle from the brewery. 2017 version at 10.5%Aroma is yeasty fruit but dominTed by the cinamon. Taste rich spicy and light sweet. Medium to fUll body.

Not my fave of one of my favorite styles. Too much burn, and something a tiny bit off in the nose and the taste, and a bit thin in the taste department. Now, what did I like you wonder? Light reddish appearance, fine spotted lace, somewhat hazy appearance, some dark fruit in the nose and taste. Mouthfeel good, syrupy. Hmm better as it warms. Go Santa go.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2017 Amber, hazy. Aroma dominated by typical christmas spices. Taste not so much, more dates, figs and raisins. Some yeastiness and bitterness also comes along.

Finn (8763) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2017
Flaske 750ml fra Vinmonopolet Tromsø Langnes. Delt med flere under juleølsmaking på Gleipne 17 Nov 17. Ultramørk aprikosfarget. Høyt mokkafarget skum. Spotlacing. Lett krydderaroma. Silkemyk munnfølelse. Smaken lett søt ingefær med hint av kanel.
