COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

visionthing (5128) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 29, 2011
Bottle. Dark red with a light brown head. Moderately sweet with lots of cinnamon and ginger - lots of it! Very little bitterness, but this is a very christmassy beer.

Palme (4484) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 27, 2011
0.33l bottle. Not for children. A deep brown body on this one and it has a nice lasting fluffy and creamy light chocolate head thats lacing quite heavily down the glass. The aroma has lots of spicy tones; ginger, cardamon, cinnamon, cocoa and some nice roasted and chocolate hints in here as well. Lots of ginger in the flavor and its lasting for quite a while. Average to soft carbonated and a light oily mouthfeel. Not to bitter and it ends dry with a everlasting spicy ginger, cinnamon and cardamom aftertaste. Not horrible to drink. Was actually baking some brownies as I drank this one and I had a little bit in the batter. They turned out quite delicious actually!

brownyonder (266) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 27, 2011
Very Dark brown with a pale cream head. The aroma isnt strong - mild coffee and liquorice plus some seasonal marzipan. Relly nice hints of cloves and cinnamon in the flavour against a background of chocolate.

INDASTRIA (129) - Berlin & Rome, GERMANY - NOV 27, 2011
Bottle @ Bir & Fud Bottega. A cinnamon and ginger bomb, nothing more. It remembers me some cake mix rather than an actual beer. The funny thing is that this beer is not even sticky, it is just bad like S***. anyway, dont waste your money, avoid it

Psytron (2148) - Turku, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2011
Aroma of cardamom and cinnamon. Pretty watery. Sweet with hints of berries to be found. A bit of a disappointment on the Brewdog scale.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1120) - FINLAND - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle. Dark brown colour, off-white head. Spicy aroma with roasted malt. A bit sweet roasted malt, chocolate and spicy ginger in the flavour. Light to medium bodied.

ration (2188) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2011
Pours dark brown with a small head, looks like cola. Aroma rich in christmas spices with some ginger. Not too much though or the points would tank in mouth. Slightly plain palate, maybe with a bit more punch might be good.

MalcolmTucker (924) - SCOTLAND - NOV 25, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Spicy aroma that is very festive. Spicy flavours with a distinct hit of cinnamom. Ticks all the boxes for a winter ale.
