Very dark brown with a nice dense brown head. Aroma is full of roasted malts, spicy cloves. On the sweeter side there is vanilla and chocolate. Rich roasted bitterflavor with salt olive notes and a medium malty sweetness. Great! abemorsten (3614) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - APR 13, 2011
Shared bottle courtesy of tarjei. Black with a fingerthick creamy brown head
Roasted notes, coffee, spices, wood and garden cress among the aromas of this complex nose. Smoke, coffee, earthy notes, alcohol and ash on a roasted, acidic flavor base. A full bodied, oily, heavily carbonated delight.

Thanks to Papsoe for this bottle. It’s a very dark brown pour with reddish highlights and a long lasting tan head. The flavor is rich, creamy with notes of chocolate, nuts and hints of spices. It’s a very tasty brew. cryptobard (281) - DENMARK - SEP 26, 2011

13-DEC-2009, bottle @Erik, brought by me.
Winter beer Batch 01.01.
Very very dark brown, small light brown head.
Roasted, smokey, tar, no spices, where is the X-mas?
Nice smoke porter, but no X-mas, so what is it with the name?
Creamy, lasting hoppy bitter ending.
