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.

Fin (9947) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2010
Bottle courtesy of Jan, many thanks Jan! shared with my dad 05.11.10 Pours quite a dark brown colour with light beige head that is creamy textured. Incredibly spicy nose, nutmeg, star anise, cinnamon, its all there along with some fine dark cocoa, quite stunning aroma. Cocoa powder in the mouth, dry finish, the taste is good, its chocolaty, malty and spicy but as fine as it is never quite reaches the high bar that the aroma set. A9 A4 T7 P4 Ov15 3.9

Batch 291, BB 17-10-11, sampled on December 15, 2010
Clear deep red color, smallish light brown head. First scent is mainly spicy. Then one (me) finds citrus, clove, cocoa, ginger, also sweet. A bit flat, dryish, cocoa, flor, apple taste. Dry cocoa powder aftertaste. Medium, low co2 mouthfeel, sort of smooth. Some alcohol bite/warming feeling. Medium bitterness.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2010
Cask Conditioned gravity dispense Wig & Pen Northampton. a dark mahogany coloured beer with an off-white head. Proper Christmas spicing in this. Lots of cinnamon and clove. More restrained in the mouth but still plenty of spice. Ends quite boozy. Lacking roasty malts that youd expect from a stout, but certainly seasonal,

Hansen (8524) - Assentoft, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2010
Looks good, dark brown, almost black and clear. Has a light brown head, mostly lasting. Aroma is heavy spicy, cinnamon. Flavor is even more spic, too much, like soap. Not good.

gunnar (8430) - Sandnes, NORWAY - DEC 26, 2010
Bottle from OBS, Bryne. Pours dark brown with a massive spongy beige head. Strong sweet aroma of ginger and cocoa. Taste is too much of that ginger and cocoa, with a peppery end from the ginger. Too unbalanced, and too much spices without character.
