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.

Botella de 330ml. Copa Tulipa. Saboreada en dic´11. Color caoba oscuro. Espuma beige de burbuja media. Corona tupida y densa con bastante buena retención. Aromas de cilantro e intenso clavo, complementados con matices de cacao, notas de canela y sutil ahumado. Té sin azúcar al primer sorbo con toque de tabaco negro. Amarga y picante en el intermedio. Cuerpo medio-ligero y carbonatación moderada. Final algo aguado, astringencia suave. Retrogusto seco con trazos de madera y humo. No estoy seguro de haber disfrutado tanto como esperaba pero, como es habitual, estos Dogs me dejan nokeado. 330ml bottle. Tulip glass. Enjoyed on dec´11. Dark mahogany in color. Beige, medium bubbled, froth. Close & dense crown with fairly good retention. Ginger, deep clove aromas complemented with hints of cocoa, notes of cinnamon & subtle smokiness. Tea-like without sugar at first sip with black tobacco touch. Bitterness & underlying spicy in the middle. Medium/light body, medium carbonation. Slightly watery finish. Smooth astringency. Dry aftertaste, hues of wood & smoke. I´m not sure if I´ve enjoyed as much as expected but, as usual, these Dogs have definitely shocked me .

Strong aroma has lots of christmas spices: cinnamon, clove, ginger, syrup. Dark red/brown to black, quite long beige head. Taste has elements from aroma and roasted coffee. Medium body, soft feel, sweet with drying finish. Like a giant hristmas cookie. Quite unusual and fun beer.

Tasted from the bottle, on 13/03/2013. Pours reddish brown. Aroma is great, spices, sour berries (cherries?), no cocoa. Taste is amazing, mostly aroma notes, but mixed so incredibly well. Aftertaste is spicy hinger, lovely! Recommended+ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
