Bottle, 66cl. Golden-copper, clear beer with a nice beige head. Malty and well-hopped aroma. The flavor is very hoppy for a Christmas beer, and quite piney, but it is definately nice. Bitter, piney and fruity finish. Full body. As mentioned, I find it too hoppy for Christmas purposes, else it is nice. (070608) jtclockwork (16581) - , New Jersey, USA - NOV 18, 2010
Bottle. Pours clear reddish brown. Nose and taste of caramel malts, hops and yeast. Fairly light body. brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Dark amber in color with a khaki head. Sweet caramel and toffee malt notes with a nice floral, herbal, and piny hop aroma. Some toast, bread, and a hint of spice. The flavor is decently sweet and malt forward, but it is also somewhat bitter. A bit of herbal and floral hop character to go along with the pine. Plenty of toffee and caramel, as well as a bit of toast and bread. Dedollewaitor (16158) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 26, 2007
Dark amber with a good white head. Hop, fruits & malts. Easy alcohol & warmth. More hoppy - less sweet than ex. the Belgium "christmas ales" (American strong ale this is) Good malty caramel/brown sugar taste before some nice hops finishes the journey!

Bottle, 5.3%. Gusher even though it is quite cold. Nicely fruity hop aroma. Hazy brown colour, OK stable tan head. The flavour has some of the same fruity hop as the aroma along with a rather sharp bitterness. The mouthfeel is a little watery. Benzai (15608) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 27, 2012
650ml bottle shared with Joes and Dutchdrebus. Hazy red color with a medium sized lightly beige head that lasts for a long time. Smell malts, lightly bread, lightly dough, some sweetness a bit resembling a barley wine. Taste malts, lightly sweet, nice bitterness, lightly some fruityness. Quite like it. Medium carbonation, medium body. bhensonb (15194) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 5, 2006
Aroma of malt and pine. Maybe a bit of citrus. Dark amber color with a light tan head. Starts with sweet malt, something complex in the middle, and a whole lot of hop for finish. Some malt goes along for the ride. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2006
Bottle at home - shared with Mette on Christmas evening. Brown - white head. Hoppy / spicy aroma. Taste: high malty, spicy, licorice, roasted, sharp. Not complex enough - a bit strange !! gunnfryd (14872) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2007
