Flaske: Flot sortbrun øl med et stort flot skumhoved. Det er så absolut det bedste der kan siges om dette kanel helvede. Alt det værste i en juleøl samlet i en stout der dufter kraftigt af kanel og smager endnu mere af det. Virkelig en prøvelse at drikke. ekstedt (6773) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2010
Bottle (33 cl) from Systembolaget. Drak reddish brown, medium off-white head. Strong gingerbread aroma with clear notes of gingerbread and some gingerbread. Light to medium bodied. Dry with harsh bitterness. Floating gingerbread. ChrisHSOTE (22) - Somerset, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2010 Drunk At Brewdog Aberdeen: Very strong overpowering spices, from nose to body. Hides nearly all the other flavours. Very Christmassy but not my scene JWE (209) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a big head. Aroma with roasted nuts and gingerbread - actually quite pleasant. The taste is just horrible though. Odd spice combination really kills this beer for me. abstractbeer (241) - NORWAY - NOV 19, 2010
Hooray! Brewdog at my local grocery store! Finally! Pours a dark reddish black, small light brown head, rather quickly diminishing. Smells initially of milk chocolate, cinnamon, some ginger and a hint of cooked vegetables. Aroma is old lady perfume, hints of grapefruit and lime, some soap, ginger and cinnamon. I have a slight cold; my senses might be impaired. Body and palate is a bit thin and quite dry. The bitterness is quite overwhelming and not too pleasant. Rather short, chalky, bitter finish. Doubt I’ll buy it again, but at least it’s interesting.

Bottled. Near black, small beige head. Concentrated gingerbread aroma. Mid sweet with light-medium body and clean mouthfeel. Spiced to oblivion, this is sheer ginger bread! More bizarre than balanced or drinkable. Beer5000 (6483) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 26, 2010
330ml bottle. Very dark red body with a dense off-white head. Relatively mild aroma, that is not much to smell besides spices. I find ginger and cinnamon. Flavor is mild malty and again totally domination of ginger and cinnamon. It’s bit strange because it’s not supposed to contain any cinnamon? Furthermore there is neither sweetness from malt nor much hop flavor. Actually find the body to thin and plain to carry this massive spice flavors. The first beer from BrewDog to disappoint me, well it had to come soon or later. saxo (18300) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2010
Bottle from Brugsen. Nice head with good duration. Color is brown. Aroma and taste are dominated by a horrible spice combination, that smells decent but tastes very bad. Very disappointing. Thoor84 (67) - ICELAND - NOV 25, 2011
As much as i love BrewDog, this one was not for me. Nevertheless quite interesting. Lots of christmas spices, for me it felt more like drinking a christmas cookie than drinking a beer. Lots of cinnamon, ginger and clove?? -- Interesting but not good imo, could not finish it :( sheep (93) - FINLAND - NOV 13, 2012
330ml bottle, bbe 29/09/12. Appearance is cola-brown with a decent beige head. Aroma is pure gingerbread and christmas spices,not much else. Maybe a hint of roast. I can’t say it’s not pleasant, it’s just that if I wanted to smell gingerbread I’d bake some, not go for a beer. Taste is musty and flat with some roasty malt and christmas spice. Well carbonated but the mouthfeel is thin and watery. Not very good.
