Mahognibrun klar med lavt beige skum. Lite lukt, noe lett brent karamell. Lett. Søtlig brent start, bitterheten kommer godt fra mitten og ut. The_Osprey (8682) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2015
500ml bottle at home, thanks to Sarah. As ’Batemans Rosey Nosey’, 4.7%, BB Dec 2016. Santa, snow, reindeer and a snowman on the label, just in case there’s any doubt about this being a Christmas special. Orange brown, clear, lightly sparkling with a thin dense tan head. Aroma is dusty, emptied vacuum, cat paws, pencil sharpenings. Body is medium, a touch foamy, low-ish carbonation. Taste is resin, spice, a little metallic all set against a peanut brittle malt background. Finishes dry and bitter with some woody cinnamon. A bit metallic. bergstaden (3156) - Røros, NORWAY - DEC 14, 2015

Enjoying this in July in New Zealand - mid winter as intended for this beer. It’s a shame I can’t share it with some Christmas Turkey and dinner! Malty well balanced and not too in your face. Erzengel (9338) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUL 7, 2015
* Nettes karamellig-dunkles Bier. Schöne Ale-Noten, frisch und tief. Dunkle Früchte, moderat bitter-aleiger Nachgeschmack. Lecker. bnokk (539) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 8, 2015
APPEARANCE - great dark amber color. White head leaves the glass too soon.
NOSE - strong malty overtones. Perhaps some fruitiness.
FLAVOR - Excellent malty brew, with hints of vanilla.
NOTES - Another refreshing Xmas ale due to its lack of too much spice. American Christmas Beer Makers, take note. BVery (11222) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 6, 2015
Bottle. Clear amber pour with a quickly dissipating carbonated head. Malty, fruity, some brown sugar and a hint of chocolate/coffee. Okay. larsga (7625) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2015
Big offwhite head. Clear deep brownish red body. Roasty
caramelly cinnamon aroma with perfumy caramel and vanilla notes.
Sweetish fruity perfumy caramel taste with metallic notes.
Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel with low carbonation. Dryish
caramelly metallic fruity aftertaste with metallic wooden vanilla
notes. It’s not bad, but a bit perfumy and artificial. (0.5l
bottle, I forget where from.)
