Pours dark brown with NO head. Rather thin and very routine tasting. It is not worth the $4 a bottle Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2004
I’m glad this wasn’t brewed in the U.S. With a name like this, I’m sure the label would’ve been really nasty. Whate’er - this poured a dark brown drink with a think white head that rapidly tranformed into a halo. It’s got a mild roasted malt aroma, somewhat sweet. The flavor is roast malt, chocolate, and maybe a touch of anise. It’s fairly watery in the mouth and has a clean finish. ho ho ho MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - DEC 13, 2004
0.5 l bottle. Clear brown, tan head. Fruity yet subtle aroma with a little touch of licorice. Thin palate. Malty carmel coffee flavor. Seems watery, and does not pick up as you drink it. Dry finish. Should have more flavor at 6%. DocLock (11236) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2004
Not great, but much better tasting than Santa’s real ass. Pours dark brown with a big creamy white head. Aroma of malt, some toffee and chocoff, slight fruit. Tastes of malt, nuts, and slight fruit, with a discombobulated finish. I’d rather rim my wife’s ass than drink Santa’s Butt again. JFGrind (2080) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2004
Is this a good beer or another imported beer with a gimmicky label and name? I put my preconceived opinion of Santa’s Butt aside before sampling. Porter poured dark brown with thin head. Slight fruit flavor, sweet malts, and a dry finish. Better porters and holidays ales out there cheaper than Santa’s Butt.

Dark brown with a small head. Muted roasted malt aroma with a hint of leather. Earthy flavor with a nod to chocolate and dry fruit. Faint sour taste on the back of the tongue. Short lived, dry finish. rlgk (18843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2004
Black, not much head. Weak malty aroma. Flavor from licorice and vanilla. Weak and with a mild finish. JPDIPSO (6317) - Wauwatosa, USA - DEC 4, 2004
Near black with a small tan shiny head. Straight forward aroma of toasted and roasted malts. HInts of coffee. Flavors of light cola, coffee, chocolate and mild caramel. Medium thickness. Just a light dark ale. MilkmanDan (1942) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - DEC 4, 2004
Light brown. Nose is a combination of standard roasts and peppermint. Very spicy and minty flavor, like somebody mixed toothpaste in with a standard porter. sloth (2970) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - DEC 4, 2004
Small light brown head, large bubbled, short lived with scant lace. A seriously black porter with a bit of brown edging. Faint malt nose, chocolate with a hint of roast. Med/light body. Chocolatey, cocoa flavors, caramel and maybe some coffe notes hidden in there also. Finishes dry and fast. Kewl label.
