mice (1102) - FINLAND - DEC 26, 2017
Hazy, beautiful red brown beer with small, but stable tight beige head. Aroma is very strong and very much Christmas. Clove, cinnamon, ginger, berries and sugar malts. Feels like gingerbread. Red berries reminds a bit of wine also. Also apple. Taste is not so strong, but it has also same ingredients, like spices, berries and malts. Medium body, low carbonation. Overall, if a beer must be "Christmas beer", this is totally it. Alcohol is hiding. A mix of gingerbread and mulled wine aka "glögi" works well on the Christmas evening.

Pours a muddled hazy brown from a bottle. Big big big cinnamon and nutmeg aroma and flavor too. Whoo boy. Pretty overwhelming stuff. Meh. I feel like I'm burping a scented candle afterward.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2017 Vom Fass im Muted Horn Berlin 2017-04 getrunken. Pflaume, Zimt und etwas Nelken dominieren diese frische Version vom Fass. Die Flaschenversion ist ja schon Weihnachten pur im Glas aber diese Zimtpflaume - MEGA Geil!

@ Budapest.

Ruby/amber, clear, no bubbles. nose is a gingerbread cookie. Thin/med body and moderately fizzy. lots of ginger, a nutty and burnt chocolate malt is a bit too burnt. nutty finish. decent. aroma is better than flavor.

tricksta_p (5354) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - FEB 4, 2017
From tap at BeerTemple, Amsterdam. Aroma is an explosion of spices, huge unpleasant cinnamon, nutmeg, christmas cake, sugar, sweet malt and caramel. Flavour is quite annoyingly sweet and cloying. Body is medium. Way too heavy on the cinnamon for my taste, almost sickening. I still love Hoppin’ Frog, but this beer...
