COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Ved juletid er det helt i orden at vre hemmelighedsfuld og overraske hinanden. Og Amager Bryghus er ingen undtagelse, da vi gerne vil glde jer. Gennem det seneste r har vi derfor holdt skjult, at vi har lagret en unik l af quadrupel-typen i vores klder. Vi har lagret den p egetr og grannle, og smagen gr i den sdlige retning, mens nsen fr tankerne hen p moden frugt, eg, slik og marcipan.
I samarbejde med vores hjlpenisser har vi dermed brygget det eksklusive bryg, du har her i hnden, og som er s julet, at selv Julemanden kun drikker den p de allerhelligste dage. Secret Santa er fyldt med de allerbedste rvarer. Der er ikke mange flasker Secret Santa, en l s hemmelig, at den knapt nok eksisterer s det var ikke med hjlpenissernes gode vilje, at vi fik lov til at udgive den. Fl den derfor ned af hylderne, hvis du skulle vre s heldig at finde den. Du vil ikke blive skuffet, men mske en lille smule bimmelim, idet den holder hele 10,5% alkohol.
Ingredienser: Det gode kommunevand fra Amager, bygmalt, mrk sirup, kandissirup, rrsukker, humle og trappistgr.

English: At Christmas its okay to be secretive and surprise each other. And Amager Brewery is no exception as we want to rejoice. Over the past years we have therefore concealed the fact that we have matured a unique beer of quadrupel type in our basement. We have stored it in oak and pine needles, and the flavor is in the sweet direction, while the nose gets reminiscent of ripe fruit, oak, sweets and marzipan.
In collaboration with our help, goblins, we thus brewed the exclusive brew, you have here in hand and are so julet that even Santa Claus only drink it on the holiest day. Secret Santa is filled with the finest ingredients. There are not many bottles of Secret Santa, a beer so secret that it barely exists - so it was not with the help nissernes good will that we were allowed to publish it. Rip it off the shelves, therefore, should you be lucky enough to find it. You will not be disappointed, but maybe a little bit bimmelim, keeping the entire 10.5% alcohol.

Rami Rami is drinking a Secret Santa by Amager Bryghus at Powiśle Przyprawowy (z przewaga imbiru i cynamanu... chyba), troche ziolowy, nieco (niestety niewiele) kandyzowanych owocow, b slodki nieco karmelowo, dosc alkoholowy, ciezki, sosnowe nuty sie pojawiaja, takie zywiczno-szpilkowe, ale inne niz chmielowe. Nie za wiele ciala, ale jest syropowosc lekka. nisko wysycony. Nie moj, ale mimo to nie jest zle. specjalnie dobrze tez nie.

Echon (414) - rhus, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2016
Beautiful mahogany. Very, very sweet taste, and a spicy flavour, with low bitterness. Thick syrupy mouthfeel. Overall, a disappointing quadrupel. First, Amager are usually much better at brewing, and second, this is poor example of what a quadrupel is. The flavour is rather simple, because everything is overwhelmed by the cloying sweetness.

HPDalen (376) - DENMARK - NOV 4, 2016
Bottle. Pours dark golden with a small and frothy tan head. The pine and oak is very dominant in the aroma, lots of sugar too. Decent palate, full body, very oily. Softly carbonated with a sweet finish. Heavy sweetness in flavour. Whatever bitterness there is comes from the pine. This is almost liquid sugar with hints of pine. There is xmas in every drop here. As xmas brews goes, it doesnt get any better

Eructoblaster (3940) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2016
Bottle - 500ml. Cloudy, dark copper body with an average, lasting, off-white creamy head. Robust, rich malty/hoppy aroma with cinnamon, brown sugar, and fruity hints. Alcohol is subtle. Its well balanced malty taste carries fruity, oaky, ginger, and some spicy notes. Ends with a long, warming bittersweet finish. Enjoyable.

caramel, bread, toast, alcohol, raisin, rhum, plum, sweet aroma. red, brown, hazy, minimal head, heavy cloying sweetness, lightly bitter, slick feel, full body, long finish, soft carbonation, The most complex beer i have tried in a while. A mix of barley wine, quad and old ale. All beer with ABV+10 should have this complexity.

Also quite intense candy-like and brown sugar aromas. Taste is sweet, rather very sweet. Dominated by brown sugar/candy flavour.
