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 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.

Christian (13685) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2010
Dark brown with a small off-white head. Strong and perfumed spicy aroma with a touch of dried fruits. Sweet roasted flavour with coffee and chocolate notes, and lots of spice. When you know it you recognize some ginger, but it feels like a big mix of spices. Odd and oddly fascinating

Rune (12995) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2010
330ml bottle bought and consumed at BrewPub København. Rocky, beige-white head leaving fragile lacing behind. Deep mahogany body. Spiced aroma. Spices like cinnamon and mild pepper to the flavour profile, in interplay with pine needles. Dry and rounded ending. Thin to medium bodied. Easy to quaff (Copenhagen, 13.11.2010).

thewolf (12634) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Kvickly, Haderslev.
Pours dark brown, bordering on black. Fine, staying, light murky white creamy head. Aroma has good spices, clear ginger, some chocolate, raisins, light glögg. Medium to high carbonation, a bit thin but very dry palate. Flavour is good, the cocoa gets through nicely, adding light zest and dryness to the chocolate base. Good, lingering dryness in the finish. Very different to many other (sweeter) Christmas beers, this is a nice change of pace even if it is nowhere near perfect.
