3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle. A cloudy reddish body with a nice beige head. Very pleasant aroma of caramel, dry fruit, spices and Belgium yeast. Flavor is sweet, caramel malt, dry fruit, brown sugar, spices and a hint of cherries. Medium body with a fruity and slightly bitter aftertaste. Not particular outstanding, but a fine and balanced Belgium style spicy beer.
Aus der Flasche (aus 2014) am 2016-11 getrunken. Ein süffiges dunkles Winterbier mit kräftiger Malznote. Ist zwar ein Bier für die dunkle Jahreszeit aber es hat keine Aroma-Schnörkel wo man sagt "Ah Weihnachten". Aber genau das macht es echt leicht trinkbar - gut gemacht!

Copenhagen 22/10 2016. 75 cl bottle from SuperBrugsen. Good old Santa making his way with big bags of toy on the label. First Christmas beer of the season - in October (sigh). But this one should be just like the King liked it in 16th century (double sigh). Pours dark amber with a reddish tinge and off-white head. Settles as thin layer of foam. Lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is sweet and of fermented fruit, brown sugar, prunes and slightly metallic. Light carbonation and slightly thick palate. Flavor is heavily sweet and sugary. Only light bitterness. I know Christmas beer is supposed to be sweet - but this one is on the verge of overdoing it. Jenner707 (82) - DENMARK - NOV 27, 2015
The beer has light brown color with a little white head. The aroma is malty with hints of roasted malt. The palate (fuzz mostly in this case) saves the beers taste and freshness. TorbenJensen (1534) - Valby, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2015
The taste is somewhat obfuscated with predominantly malt. Very sweet beer with flavor of cloves and prune. Discloses fennel back label, but it does not taste in the beer. Hop bitterness is discreet, and it is a beer that lacks a whole in his tasting notes. It tastes pretty much quite well, but in the end is the same messy and incoherent.

Bottle. Creamy off-white good mostly lasting head. Amber colour. Moderate malty and hoppy aroma. Moderate bitter flavor. Slightly not pleasent sour. Average moderate bitter finish. Oily palate. Not very good but nice looking.

Great christmas beer. Aroma is cinnamon and wild berries. Taste is sour, actually this reminds me more of a lambic style beer, rather than belgian. Medium to high carbonated, quite refreshing this one. Enjoyit (3809) - Vadum, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2014
Dark brown of color with an off white head. A sweet aroma of syrup, caramel, orange, candy and weak spice. A flavor of sweets, candy, toffee, spice ånde orange. Bamsen78 (5486) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy dark amber with airy but stable beige head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel, cinnamon and yeast. Sweetish flavour of cinnamon and caramel malt, with some fruity and estery touches. Subtle hints of hops. Mildly sourish notes towards the finish, persisting in the aftertaste. Not a very rich body, actually a trifle watery. Drinkable, but not any particularly memorable experience.

Amber color with a small off-White head. Aroma is anise and spices. Taste is ginger and cinnamon. Too much carbonation
Plovmand (8532) - Grindsted, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle. It pours cloudy deep Amber with a small beige head. Loads of anise and cardemon in the aroma. Some ginger. The flavor is cinnamon, anise and sweet caramel. It’s brunkage all over. Not me at all.
