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.

larsga (7497) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2010
Big brown head. Black body goes barely translucent brown at edges. Spicy cinnamon cocoa and pine needle aroma with roasty notes. Dry intensely spicy ginger and cinnamon taste with wooden cocoa notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish mouthfeel. Dry wooden pine needle aftertaste with roasty cocoa notes. The spiciness is a bit sharp and harsh for such a thin, dry beer, but its still a good beer. (0.33l bottle, Meny Grnland Torg, Oslo.)

Sigmund (7309) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 28, 2010
330 ml bottle, batch #297, bought at Coop OBS, Bryne. ABV is 4.7%. Dark brown to black colour, big beige head. Strong sweetish aroma of ginger, cocoa and oranges. Light bodied, cant be expected to be a match for its big brother Santa Paws. Fairly refreshing flavour, not very sweet, strong notes of ginger and cocoa, bitter and peppery finish. Seems somewhat unbalanced with all its spiciness, lacks a malty backbone.

SaintMatty (7228) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2010 330ml Bottle (Thanks Svesse) - Dark brown with a tan head. Spicy and chocolatey aroma with hints of ginger and cinnamon. Gingerbread, malt and chocolate dominate the taste with a bitter and slightly warming finish.

Nisse666 (7129) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2010
Bottle from SB, cons 2010-12-07 AR: to much cloves (more like glgg (Swedish gluwein)), resin, pine AP: dark, dark ruby red (amlost black), of white frothy head, nice curtains F: roasted malt, ginger bread, thin body, metallic feeling, medium high bitterness, some coffey. Definitivly not one of the better Brewdogs I have consumed!

tiong (7129) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 9, 2011
330ml bottle from K-Supermarket Kamppi

Batch 1273 BBE 29/09/12 - Pours dark brown, almost black with a small foamy head. Aroma has notes of slightly roasty malts, gingerbread, cinnamon and other Christmas spices. Taste has notes of slightly roasted malts, spices, cocoa and some fruity hints. Finish is carbonated and slightly hoppy. Okay spicy stout that certainly gets you in the mood for Christmas. Not very well balanced, though.

olsvammel (7120) - rebro, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2011
Bottle from Systembolaget. It poured a pitch black liquid with a big light brown head. Smel of ginger and lots of it. Taste of ginger, fruits, fruit cake, spices, dried apples and cinnamon. Semi-smooth mouthfeel, medium thick body and a high amount of carbonation. This was like drinking a liquid fruit cake spiced with ginger. Hard to rate but interesting... I liked it.

mjs (7098) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 24, 2011
(Bottle, 0.33 l - BBE 29/09/12, 201111124) The beer poured dark brown. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had cinnamon, chocolate and ginger. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were ginger, chocolate, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste had spices and bitterness. After sniffing the beer I was expecting a heavier spice bomb but the flavours were quite balanced which was a nice surprise.

larsniclas (7005) - Billdal, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2010
Bottled from Systembolaget Black with a large, off-white head. Fresh, slightly roasted aroma and flavour with ginger. Light to medium bitterness and pretty moderate sping makes it a good beer in my palate!
