COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Roundness to be enjoyed by the side of an open fire! We wanted to create a more palateful, stronger beer, but without spices, unlike the majority of Christmas beers. The work therefore first of all focused on the selection of the barley malts. We needed a mixture of five different barley malts for obtaining the dark ruby colour and the body that we wanted. Then, we wanted hops that were not too strong, in order to contribute to that typical roundness of winter beers. This is why we have mainly opted for the Slovenian Styrian Golding, not very bitter, but used in great quantity and combined with a little Cascade, for a very fine hopping."

Bottle courtesy of Deanso. Poured a clear dark brown with a big frothy light tan head and a few bubbles. The aroma is yeast, sweet red berry fruit. The flavour is moderate sweet, light bitter with a light, slightly watery fruity, light roasty malt, light hop bitter palate. Moderate to light bodied with lively carbonation. A Christmas beer "should" have more body, more fruit, less CO2 and more rich defining flavours. This is not a bad beer, but it’s not what I expect from a Christmas beer.

VsXsV (4571) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle. Almost hazy copper liquid with small to medium off-white head. Aroma of dried fruit, licorice, light chocolate, light banana, raw sugar and light bubblegum. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of dried fruit and raw sugar. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. A bit watery and characterless.

TychoJames (1522) - �rebro, SWEDEN - DEC 26, 2014
Flaska 75 cl belgoklubben. Grumlig mörkt kopparfärgad med stort beiget skum. Doft av bröd, dränerade äpplen och lättare malt. Förhållandevis neutral. Smaken likaså den inget som imponerar . Bröd och malt med alkohol som slår igenom. Går väl att ana en viss fruktighet i bakgruden. Har en ganska bra beska men utöver den känns den något platt och lite av en besvikelse faktiskt.

adster (862) - HUNGARY - DEC 21, 2014
Nagyszerű mézeskalács aromákkal nyit, tükörsima borostyán testén tört fehér tejszínhab húzódik. Nyugodt, kiegyensúlyozott kortyait aszalt sárgabarack, csipetnyi fahéj, ízgazdag maláta és sziporkázó élesztő teszik igazán meghitté. Selymesen csúszik, miközben apró fűszerbombák pukkadoznak útját színesítve, az összkép karcmentes, csodásan sima. Remekül kiegyensúlyozott, és mégis kellően tartalmas alkotás.

gyllenbock (10025) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle. (thanks SirLimpsalot) A bit hazy dark red with a medium head. A bit thin and sweet with malt, chocolate, some perfume and light roasted. Nothing special.

@ Gyllenbock 14-12-13: ganska medioker både i doft och smak. Söt och maltig med liten beska. Känns lite intetsägande. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!
