Hazmatt (363) - Virginia, USA - DEC 26, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2006 Bottle. Dark drown, copious head, excellent head retention and lacing. Malty aroma, hint of yeast and caramel. Strong, malty flavor, with raisin, roasted and spicy hints. Slight warming. Very smooth.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2006 Mostly clear bronze body with moderate carbonation and a foamy, beige head. Nose is not particularly aromatic or interesting, mostly just suggesting caramelized brown sugar. Flavor is of currants, dried plums, and brandy. Semi-dry with herbal and woody hop flavors and substantial bitterness.

Black Coloring with Tan Head. Sweet Dry Malt Aroma. Sweet Dry Rye Bread. Light Citrusy. Dark Bread Comes Out Most Prominant. Nice Malty Christmas Ale.

Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 25, 2005
2005 bottle. Doesnt look too exciting. Basic brown color with a thick tan head. Light fruity aroma with prunes and dates. Malty sweet flavor with some light fruit and citrus. Nothing spectacular but still enjoyable.

NachlamSie (3421) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 25, 2005
bottle. pours a quite dark mahogany with an intense, rocky head. Aroma is spicy, full of cloves, and has a hint of coffee along with a vinous sweetness. Body is pleasantly dense. The flavor is plenty sweet and balanced by a tart spiciness. Theres some orange peel and bread in the mix. This is great for the season.

A decent beer, but maybe not worth $3.17. A nice mouthfeel, good lacing around the edges.

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 23, 2005
Nice, black pour with a small, fizzy head. Aroma really shines, like a combination between a tripel and a hefe, with strong spicing: sweet malts, brown sugar, banana, cinnamon, nutmeg. Flavor doesnt hold over as well, tasting a bit creamy and malty, though spicing is not apparent. Taste lingers in the mouth though somewhat unpleasantly.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2006 Very good, the bottle is nice, dark and good foam, very cloudy and very sweet.
