Bottle, pours dark brown, aroma is woody and flavour has a lot of wood in there too, quite strong flavour wise. But overall, it was enjoyable

Beer5000 (6264) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 3, 2013
650 ml bottle. A deep amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma has caramel malt, burnt sugar, dry fruit, wood, Christmas spices and alcohol. Flavor has sweet caramel malt, wood, dry fruit, raisins, some alcohol and a nice spicy touch. Medium to full body, feels perfect. A nice, tasty and complex beer, just a tad too much alcohol but this will probably be reduced with some aging.

superspak (5216) - Michigan, USA - JAN 25, 2013
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, 2012 bottling. Pours fairly clear deep red amber color with a 1 finger foamy off white head with good retention, that reduces to ring of lace that lingers. Minimal spotty lacing on the glass. Aromas of caramel, raisin, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, bourbon, toast, light oak, and light herbal. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of malt, spices, and barrel notes. Taste of raisin, caramel, brown sugar, toast, cinnamon, bourbon, ginger, allspice, nutmeg, light oak, and herbal. Lingering notes of dark fruit, caramel, brown sugar, cinnamon, bourbon, ginger, allspice, nutmeg, and herbal on the finish for a good bit. Very nice flavor balance and complexity of malt/spice/barrel notes; with zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a slick and fairly creamy mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice Christmas ale. Great balance and complexity of malt and spice flavors with moderate barrel character; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

650ml bottle from Cotteridge Wines.Poured a nice dark amber colour with almost no head.Aromas straight away of Christmas pudding and spices with gingerbread also coming through strong.Christmas pudding and gingerbread taste too with some nutmeg.Spices also in there,especially cinnamon and ginger along with vanilla and some boozy notes and slight oak too.Sweet and fruity and for me a near perfect Christmas beer.
