2004 Vintage - 750 pours a beautiful deep amber red with a monster beige golden head and Belgian lace. The aroma is of dates and spices. The flavor is roasted, sweet, dark fruits, cinnamon, slightly yeasty, and banana. The palate is perfect BSA richness with a superior cleansing attitude that hits in the end. Overall, fine beer and a good one for my 500th rating. BBHansen (920) - Køge, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2016

Dark with a red tint. Quickly diminishing off white head. Sweet with a licorice aroma. Nice blend of Christmas spices in the taste. Well done

750 ml. Pour dark brown and relatively clear. Almost looks like a cola. Heavy molasses scent, with a good note of hops. Very heavy and sweet. A very good beer for the price.

Bottle. Lovely dark copper pour with a long lasting light tan head. A slightly spicy nose with a touch of caramelised figs, nutmeg and toffee. The mouthfeel is smooth and warming and the taste is about the same, with a nice balance between the spice and the sweetness. Highly enjoyable in the middle of the year in Melbourne, even though it is a "Christmas ale". MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 23, 2008

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2017 God og behagelig juleøl. Tilpas med krydderier. God smag, men med en anelse for meget alkohol.
