Bottle at home, at least a year or so old! Dark, dark copper brown pour with a thin off-white head. Really lovely nose - cloves, ginger, nutmeg, touch of marzipan. Definitely christmassy. Slightly dry palate though - mild roast, lager grains, fairly nothingy. Slight cocoa on the finish maybe, grassy hops too. Not amazing, not terrible.
Kardemomme? Den smager meget af julekage. Ellers en god sødme, og smagen af jul fortager sig langsomt som man kommer gennem øllen, og bliver god bitter i stedet for. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - OCT 31, 2015
3/18/2012 3:02:06 PM Bottle from Saveur Bière. Dark brown body with huge head. Nose of spices, ginger and cinammon. Taste is also quite spicy, some malts and caramel with cinnamon notes. Then the ginger kicks in at the end turning into a sweetbread flavour. Not really my type of beer. But can enjoy its uniqueness. There is a BrewDog!

The aroma in the dense light brown foam reveals cinnamon, clove and an unusual scent of brown cakes. The taste has sweetness at the same cookie-like manner. There is also a pleasant taste of roasted malt with cocoa tones in the background. Hop bitterness is long and continuously and slightly ripe fruit in the luggage. Clove and orange peel takes you briefly from the many flavors. Stuu666 (14596) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 15, 2014

Bottle at home. Dark brown with a thin off white head. Smell is very my type, cinnamon, spice, Jamaica cake and ginger. Flavour has some more Jamaica loaf or cake whatever it’s called, spicy finish, low carbonation. Would drink again, especially at xmas, I do love a xmas beer at xmas.

Mörk och skummig. Vattning, tunn och besk. En besvikelse från ett annars fantastiskt bryggeri. Svesse (8742) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 2, 2013
(Bottle) Dark brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty spicy nose with ginger, liquorice, dark bread, ginger biscuits, brown sugar and a touch of chocolate. Malty, spicy taste with notes of ginger, liquorice, cocoa, black rye bread, lots of gingerbread and a certain spicy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, mainly dry. Brings me back to mom’s gingerbread at Christmas (and makes me sound a bit like Proust...). Quite nice.
