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 Santass 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 BrewDogs not for life, its just for Christmas.

CEZ (413) - Milano, ITALY - FEB 27, 2012
One of the strangest brews Ive ever tasted, this is a style on its own... Very dark brown body, medium off-white head. The CI N N A M O N in the nose is overwhelming and a bit shocking. Otherwise the balance is nice and interesting. More cinnamon, anisette, salty licorice, cola. Moderately sweet followed by a moderate but lasting herbal bitterness. Light to medium mouthfeel. Definitely interesting and worth a try, but its just not to my liking - someone else might love it.

Sevenlee (1846) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - FEB 27, 2012
Pours a very dark brown colour with an off-white head. Aroma is spicy with cinnamon and cardamom coming out most along with chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is also spicy with some choc and roastiness coming through. Quite nice.

Bottle 33 cl . A clear red brown colour with a high, good lacing, beige head. An aroma of malt, caramel, ginger and cinnamon. The taste is heavy sweet and medium bitter. A medium body, oily texture, average carbonation and a medium long spicy duration.

Geuzelambix (243) - Kbenhavn, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2012
Quite good beer with an interesting taste. A little different than most christmas beers and thankfully not as sweet. Not overly impressed by the aroma or the palate, but the taste was definitely ok.

0.33 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Dark reddish brown. Strong sweet clove, cinnamon and cocoa aroma. Spicy bitter flavor with clove, cinnamon, ginger and licorice. Very spicy, nice christmas cookie aroma, but the flavor would need more backbone and body.

thirstyrabbit (1800) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 6, 2012
Small bottle. Dark brown body, minimal head. Herbal aroma with a light touch of ginger. Thin palate. Taste is herbal too, with some cough syrup but no alcohol warmth to follow, which in this case would have made it better.
