WVHouseofBeer (1055) - West Virginia, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Poured a very dark brown color with a frothy khaki head. Nice aromas and flavors of toffee, caramel, nuts and maybe a little bit of chocolate. Body is a little thin. Sweet and chewy finish. Very good beer.

bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2012
Bottle thanks to my sister for christmas. Pours a dark brown with mahogany flashes down the side of the glass. Smallish dense light tan coloured head. Fine lacing leaves as except the thinest film. Aromas of sweet light caramel, cinnamon and ginger and some light stone fruits. Very christmas like. Flavours are sweet thanks to all the malt with only feint hop bitterness to finish. Somewhat creamy mouthfeel with slightly resiny after taste.

Bottle (damaged notes from the flooding of my basement). Sweetish aroma...all I could read.

Scipio (982) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Pours a deeper brown with an average beige head. Aroma is more heavy and malty, consisting of caramel, nuts, fig, and some slight spice notes. Roasted. The taste is pretty much what I was expecting from the nose. It is more nutty here and the I do get a bit more spice, especially at the end. The aftertaste is more nutty over everything else. It lasts awhile, but isnt very strong. This is very smooth when drinking, with a medium body and some flatter carbonation. Nothing bad to report, although this one isnt all that special.

hohops (952) - Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2016
Appearance is very dark brown, a bit hazy, a thick half-finger beige head which lasts well. Looks good. Aroma- nutty, brown bread, treacle, dark malts, creamy malt, hop hints. Taste- smooth nutty malt, roast nuts, toffee, dark fruits, raisin, malt loaf, brown bread. Rich fruitcake. Smooth and slightly sticky mouthfeel with some bitter hops in the finish. Nice one.

PapaVillum (928) - Valby, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2015
Mahognifarvet og rolig julebryg / English Strong Ale med 3 cm stor moccafarvet skumkrone, som svinder til et par mm tykkelse. Ganske fin og anderledes aroma af soyasovs og brunkage. Senere noter af rugbrød. Dejlig smag med let indledende syrlighed og en fin balanceret bittersødme med noter af chokolade og ristet malt. Aldrig for sød, aldrig for dominerende bitterhed, selvom denne spiller den største rolle. Solid bitter, middel sødme. Blød mundfølelse med en nedjusteret karbonering. Middel fyldig krop og olieret konsistens. Afslutningen er bitter, kort og tør. Forbavsende meget smag i denne forholdsvis alkohol-milde jule-ESB. Og ganske god. 500 ml, flaske, 5,5 % ABV, BB: 24/10/15, købt i SuperBest i Rødovre Centrum. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2005
Bottle - Vintage 2004 (Traded at the brewery late Oct 2004)
Label says: A strong dark beer, originally brewed for the festive season. Maris Otter Malting Barley, Fuggles Goldings and Challenger Hops, with a handful of Chocolate Malt, combine to give a robust, dark ale.
Dark brown in color and a rich head. Plums in aroma. Plums, raisins and nuts in taste. Fullbodied and quite sweet and nice for a cold winters day. A roasted finish with a hint of chocolate/nougat. Very good for a UK bottled beer.
