larsga (7444) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 7, 2017
Big beige head. Barely translucent deep dark red body. Spicy dried fruit aroma with liver (?!?) notes. Dryish earthy spicy dried fruit taste with mineraly notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry wooden bark and too much spice aftertaste with cinnamon and dried fruit notes. Its not actively bad, but its not very nice, either. Something about the spice profile is just overpowering. (0.63l bottle, from somewhere in Denmark.)

brnandersen (3563) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2016
63 cl bottle, shared. Slightly hazy amber colour with a thin, lightly tanned head. Sweet aroma with caramel malts, wooden and toasted notes, vineous impressions and yeasts. Taste is light sweet. Medium to full body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes slightly dry with caramel malts and vineous notes. Nice Winter warmer.

CloakedDagger (2277) - - DEC 23, 2016
Bottle 63 cl. Pours a dark, reddish brown with a beige head. Spicy clove aroma, vague roast underneath. Rich, filling body, subtle roast, Belgian yeast and again quite some Xmas spices. But absolutely no traces of the noble hops and oak chips. For all the effort they went through to make this, the end result is somewhat underwhelming. But by no means a bad beer. It just promises much more that it delivers. 231216

Skinnyviking (9243) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2016
63 cl. bottle at home Medium high creamy long lasting off-white head. Clear albeit very dark brown body. Sweet cocoa caramel aroma with a spicy note. Mild and sweet creamy and smooth cocoa caramel spicy flavor with a touch of lemon as well. Fair amount of hops bitterness. Low carbonation. Long sweet finish. Would never have guessed the alcohol level.

Guruhso (530) - Grindsted, DENMARK - DEC 9, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown with tan head. Aroma of toasted malty caramel and fruity yeast with at good citrus hop-bite. Lot of X-mas species and notes of oak taninns. Sweet then bitter. Lively carbonation. Interesting...

ulrikolsen (569) - DENMARK - DEC 6, 2016
Bottle. Pours clear dark brown with beige head. Aroma has dark malt, dark caramel, spices and a slightly winey character. Taste is malty with dark malts, notes of chocolate and caramel and quite spicy with hints of liquorice. Quite dry and lightly bitter with a dark malty finish.

Bamsen78 (5220) - Snderborg, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2016
Bottle, opened to celebrate, quite appropriately, St. Nicholas Day. Pours slightly hazy dark copper brown with airy but stable beige head. Clear aroma of malt and yeast, with fruity and vinous notes and touches of hops. Bitter flavour of hops with rough, estery notes and touches of fruit and malt. Hints of spice. Butter, boozy and metallic aftertaste with faint acidic hints. Well, it could be a good beer but the bitterness that results from the combination of roasted malts and high ABV is rather unpleasant. Drinkable but not easy to drink and enjoy.

Plovmand (8093) - Helsinge, DENMARK - DEC 1, 2016
Bottle. It pours dark brown with a beige head. The aroma is loaded with cardamom and dark malts. Some roasted flavor notes along with cardamom and fresh oak. Not as sweet as expected but a bit pumpkin ale like.
