COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La notte del 5 dicembre, i Krampus si aggirano fra le vie ed i vicoli dei paesini dell’arco alpino. Coperti da pelli di montoni, con corna e zampe di capra, agitando le loro nere catene, terrorizzano gli abitanti dei villaggi. È il preludio dell’arrivo del Vescovo San Nicola (antico precursore de Babbo Natale) che riporterà la pace, dolci e doni nella comunità. Una birra dedicata al Natale, calda ed avvolgente, dalle tenue speziatura. Ideale per aspettare lálba accanto al focolare, al riparo dalle incursioni del demoni.

Foffern (2047) - Bodø, NORWAY - DEC 29, 2015
Bottle at home. One year old. Has a slightly hazy reddish brown color with a small beige head. Aroma of oak, dried fruit, vinegar, leather, heather, licorice and some alcohol. The flavor is similar but with more anise, oak, leather and heather. Has a silky mouth feel, medium body and a light bitterness. A nice sweet and sour ale with a pleasant touch of spices.

Rating #1357 05.12.2014 330mL bottle #5 from the 2014 Craft BeerAdvent Calendar - Pours a deep reddish brown with a bubbly head that disapparates rather quickly. Aroma is balsamic vinegar, oak - rich, fruity texture. Palate is well balanced - lots of tart balsamic sweetness, and very sour. Well achieved and devastatingly underappreciated.

sebwaw (79) - POLAND - DEC 27, 2014
Big bottle, pours deep amber, hazy with soft, creamy head. Aroma is mostly grapes, wild yeast, much sourness. Some maltiness in taste, sour grapes, some dried fruits, even a touch of vanilla. Short finish, light bitterness. Its a decent beer at best, many more better examples.

3.1
Cruzer (109) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Pretty surprised as to how sour it turned out, but I enjoyed it! Very fruity and sugary aroma, flavour of lemon and citrus.
