Hark! A limited editon seasonal stout brewed with cocoa nibs and ginger stems.

In the true spirit of Christmas ’cheers’ we at BrewDog have taken it upon ourselves to create a Santas’s little helper for all those battling through the festive season.

Our crack team of elves, penguins and red nose raindeer have been crafting, brewing and perfecting this warming winter stout as a reward for all those driven to the brink and back in the name of Noel.

Now all you have to do is don that customary yule tide sweater and find a roaring open fire to enjoy it by.

In fact this beer is so good, we specifically advise against sharing it with any chimney intruding, night time visitors.

Oh and just remember, this BrewDog’s not for life, it’s just for Christmas.

Botella de 330ml. Copa Tulipa. Saboreada en dic´11. Color caoba oscuro. Espuma beige de burbuja media. Corona tupida y densa con bastante buena retención. Aromas de cilantro e intenso clavo, complementados con matices de cacao, notas de canela y sutil ahumado. Té sin azúcar al primer sorbo con toque de tabaco negro. Amarga y picante en el intermedio. Cuerpo medio-ligero y carbonatación moderada. Final algo aguado, astringencia suave. Retrogusto seco con trazos de madera y humo. No estoy seguro de haber disfrutado tanto como esperaba pero, como es habitual, estos Dogs me dejan nokeado. 330ml bottle. Tulip glass. Enjoyed on dec´11. Dark mahogany in color. Beige, medium bubbled, froth. Close & dense crown with fairly good retention. Ginger, deep clove aromas complemented with hints of cocoa, notes of cinnamon & subtle smokiness. Tea-like without sugar at first sip with black tobacco touch. Bitterness & underlying spicy in the middle. Medium/light body, medium carbonation. Slightly watery finish. Smooth astringency. Dry aftertaste, hues of wood & smoke. I´m not sure if I´ve enjoyed as much as expected but, as usual, these Dogs have definitely shocked me .

Bottle from Way way too thin. Quite enjoyable for the flavour but it felt like drinking flavoured water. Still quite nice.

imdownthepub (14743) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2012
Bottled, 330ml from Bellingers Garage, Grove, Oxon. Chestnut with cream head. Heady aroma of spices, leading to rather a sweetish, honeyed, smooth malty beer with a lavish dose of ginger. There is a chocolate element but this is smooth and milky. Not a blockbuster but reasonably decent.

BeerSkull (1373) - SWEDEN - MAR 30, 2012
Nice spicy fragrance and flavor with elements of ginger, cinnamon, malt and cloves. Distinct bitterness in the aftertaste, but somewhat thin in the body. A really tasty and spicy Christmas beer!

An amazing beer with an overwhelming taste of cinnamon. Thin in texture yet close to completely black in colour. A special and very unusual beer, and one you can actually enjoy again and again throughout an evening.
