Not a bad beer. Easy drinker. Nothing terribly Christmas-y about it, but I didn’t really count off for that. I wouldn’t seek it out, but I wouldn’t refuse it if offered. Niller (1706) - Hammel, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2014
Bottle from Voldby. Pours clear dark amber with a beige head. Taste is sweet roasted malts, coffee notes, caramel, brown sugar. hint of chocolate. Flat carbonation. Dry bittersweet finish. slowrunner77 (12594) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 18, 2014
"there’s a very pleasant sweet sugar/lactose aroma and mouthfeel here, maybe a little caramel malt, but the body and flavor don’t have a lot else left to offer. quite boring and doesn’t taste like a porter. thin, almost non-existent head, thin body, no finish. an ok beer, but not a good porter.

Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a mug.
The appearance was a dark brown color close to black the further towards the center. There was a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Light lacing slid into the beer.
The smell had some roasty coffee to chocolate qualities with a light cinnamon, nuts and caramel coming through.
The taste took those previously mentioned flavors and had them combined fairly well.
On the palate, this one sat right at a medium in body with a slight sessionable aspect about it. Carbonation was pretty subdued and smooth.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good porter to have again. SilverfoX (871) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2014

Pours a dark mahogany brown, with a beige head.
Roasted, malty, quite complex aroma, chocolate, licorice, ashes, butterscotch.
Off-dry, medium body and bitterness, balanced CO2.
Roasted, spicy, malty taste, licorice, coffee beans, ashes, fudge, citrus, hops, chocolate.
Quite classic for a porter, very drinkable. (2014-01-24)

Bottle as a Christmas gift. Great name butt that's about it. Weird aroma and similar after taste. Not good.

Mmmm, this is good. Oily slick in head. Chocolate. This doesn’t taste like Santa’s butt at all. Thanks Tony.
