Danish: Ved juletid er det helt i orden at være hemmelighedsfuld og overraske hinanden. Og Amager Bryghus er ingen undtagelse, da vi gerne vil glæde jer. Gennem det seneste år har vi derfor holdt skjult, at vi har lagret en unik øl af quadrupel-typen i vores kælder. Vi har lagret den på egetræ og grannåle, og smagen går i den sødlige retning, mens næsen får tankerne hen på moden frugt, eg, slik og marcipan.
I samarbejde med vores hjælpenisser har vi dermed brygget det eksklusive bryg, du har her i hånden, og som er så julet, at selv Julemanden kun drikker den på de allerhelligste dage. Secret Santa er fyldt med de allerbedste råvarer. Der er ikke mange flasker Secret Santa, en øl så hemmelig, at den knapt nok eksisterer – så det var ikke med hjælpenissernes gode vilje, at vi fik lov til at udgive den. Flå den derfor ned af hylderne, hvis du skulle være så heldig at finde den. Du vil ikke blive skuffet, men måske en lille smule bimmelim, idet den holder hele 10,5% alkohol.
Ingredienser: Det gode kommunevand fra Amager, bygmalt, mørk sirup, kandissirup, rørsukker, humle og trappistgær.

English: At Christmas it’s 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.

rane (1094) - Nibe, - DEC 21, 2012
Bottle. Red brown with small white head. Aroma sprouce and sweet dried fruits. Quite funny the beer isn´t so dominated by the aroma from sprouce as some IPA´s are. Very sweet and cloying. Sprouce and spices. This beer lacks some hopps to balance the sweetness. A take on a typical belgian christmasstyle beer, but way too sweet. I think it´s the first time I´ve had a quad that I didn´t really like.

Lore (2863) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 2, 2017
mahogany colour, minimal creamy beige-ish head; aroma of unripe plum, green apple, caramel, biscuit and maybe some anise, too; taste of syrupy sweetness with slight burt sugar, plum jam and candied dried apricot; unbalancedly sweet; I don’t really like it...and obviously expected much more...

brnandersen (4065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2017 50 cl bottle, batch no 1420. Poured in to a Trappist glass. Poured a lovely amber red colour with a thin, white head. Sweet aroma with rich caramel malts, spruce, ripe, sweet fruits, marzipan and oaked notes. Taste is heavy sweet. Full body with a soft carbonation and an oily texture. Finishes sweet with spruce and rich malts. Far too sweet, far too much spruce, far too rich for my likings. Amager is without any doubt one of the best Danish breweries. This is way off for me, had to pour rest of the bottle in the sink. Please stick to the hoppy stuff, guys!

martjoobolut (4947) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 24, 2017
Bottle, BB 11/2019 (from Boxbeers). Pours murky brownish dark amber with beige head. Aroma is sweet and some bitterness, caramel, fruits, sugar, spices, malt, raisins, bit mashy. Flavor is very sweet, sugar, spices, booze, malt, fruits. Overall: this is just spiced sugar water with some booze and caramel, as far as beers go, this is not a very good one.

alteregoo (1671) - Kalisz, POLAND - FEB 7, 2017
Po przelaniu do szkła tworzy się nieduża, drobna piana. Barwa miedziana, opalizująca. W aromacie cukier kandyzowany, rodzynki, miód, szałwia i inne przyprawy... W smaku słodkie, pełne, oleiste - jest trochę rodzynek, kandyzowanych owoców, miodu, syropu klonowego, do tego lekko cierpkie zioła, mięta, anyż, gdzieś w domyśle odrobina wanilii, tanin. Goryczka niska, pikantna, wysycenie niskie, rozgrzewający alkohol.
Ciekawy, wyraźnie świąteczny Quadrupel - mocno słodki i mocno przyprawowy, co mi tu niestety przeszkadza...

Nevalainen (821) - FINLAND - JAN 14, 2017
Very sweet beer, but I liked it. The color is hazy amber with creamy beige head. Aroma has touch of syrup, caramel and pine needles. Taste is very sweet and there is clear taste of pine needles, dark fruits and caramel. Very nice beer, but don’t drink it too fast. The sweetness and alcohol will beat you down!

cfrancis (3535) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2017
Pours dirty brown with a small white wisp. Aroma is grape, raisin, sweet toffee malt. Taste is grape juice. Plum, toffee sweetness. Tons of malt in this sucker. A little too sweet for me.
