harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2007
Bottle at Chris_O London bottlefest March 07. Very dark ruby. Thin beige head. Slight sour aroma. Decent malts. Bit disappointing really and I don’t think I liked it as much as the others.

3.3
SilkTork (5738) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2007
ChrisFest Dark and mildly medicinal and honeyed. Some sugar comes through. Finish is perhaps vague, though soft bitterness lingers. Very drinkable brown ale and reasonably interesting and individual as a number of Scandinavian beers are.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2008 A Mes rate: 50cl bottle at Chris O’s extravaganza. Firstly I love the fairly random alcohol % on the bottle of 5.9 - 6.1%. Hazy red/brown colour with a slight light tan head. Spicy aroma with quite a lot going on. Notes of marmite, barley, alcohol and nutmeg. Flavour is similar with some extra roasted nuts and some saltyness but a little too much clove. Vanilla then hops in the finish and a nice gradual warmth.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2007
Bottled - Chris_O Fest March 07. A dark,dark brown coloured beer with an off-white coloured head. The aroma is very spicy with cinnamon and cloves together with brown fruits and alcohol. The taste is very spicy also. A touch phenolic. Some chocolate nots. Nice and Christmassy.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 23, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2007 Courtesy of omhper. Pours brown with a thin ring of tan bubbles scattered about the glass. Smells of caramel, brown sugar, raisins, roses, chocolate, lots of holiday spices. Tastes of chocolate, cinnamon, some mellow bitterness, Lots of holiday flavors. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but the finish is sweet and leaves me wanting more.

yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2007
Bottled. Clear, copper-colored beer with a beige, almost tan head. Cloves, roasted malt, christmas-spices and vanilla in the aroma. The flavor has much the same, with cloves, roasted malt and some vanilla. Full to medium body. A nice, christmasy Christmas beer. (070213)

3.9
larsga (7542) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 21, 2007
Medium creamy offwhite head. Deep dark brownish red body with some carbonation. Burnt, malty harmonic aroma with cinnamon notes. Deep, balanced burnt wooden taste with vanilla, smoke, and caramel notes. Very well made. Extremely drinkable, considering how unusual it is. Very good. (0.5l bottle.)

3.6
OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2007
Bottle. Dark brown with a red tinge. Thin tan head. Fresh, herbal and spicy nose. Taste is medium sweet and roasty, with flavors of dark malts, dark dried fruits, Christmas spices, and mild and gentle hops. Medium body. Dry and quite salty finish. Nice all over.

3.3
KnutAlbert (6754) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2007
Bottled. Some spices, but it is more like a porter-style dark ale. Some smoked malt in there. A fine beer.

3.6
motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 14, 2007
rbesg06, bottle at delirium. browny purple with a creamy beige head. bizarre aroma - bandaids, floorboards, cherry, nutmeg, cocoa powder, finnish fish buffet. funky with some earthy cummin, coffee bean, beetroot. all over the place but somehow it works
