500ml bottle (Utobeer, London)HenrikSoegaard (14760) - Randers, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2010
Deep red, brief head. Sweet chocolat cakey aroma, plenty of treacly sweetness. Sweet smooth palate, carbonation pleasant. Big bold sweet taste packed with roasted malts, and with a really burnt bitter bite. Definitely a spicy bent, but not in an overpowering or gimmicky way. Alcohol well covered. Finish pleasantly bitter, not just hoppy, but also burnt.
Bottle. Frothy off-white good mostly lasting head. Amber colour. Moderate malty and hoppy aroma. Powerfull bitter spicey flavor. Long nice moderate bitter fruity finish. Creamy palate. I really like this beer. Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2010
It’s hazy, beautiful red mahogany with a creamy head and the aroma has notes of malt, caramel and tart berries. The flavor is moderately sweet with notes of malt, citrus, slightly tart berries, caramel and the finish is rather dry, probably because of the cinnamon, that I do not find as a note. The aftertaste is long. yespr (49173) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2009

Bottle 50 cl. Pours a clear amber with a rough off-white head. Discreet aroma, a little fruit, caramel and alcohol. Medium body, sweet caramel, nuts with a rather bitter and alcoholic finish. A little rough. 161209 thewolf (12992) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2009
Bottle, bought @ LIVA, Kolding.berkshirejohn (6813) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2009
Pours deep brown with a nice, small, creamy, yellowish head. Very sweet aroma with milky caramel, some grass, light nutty. Low carbonation, lovely oily mouthfeel. Flavour is slightly harsh actually. A little metallic. Some viniousness. Otherwise heavy on the caramel, nuttiness, lightly roasted notes and quite a heavy hoppy bitterness in the finish. A tad weird but fairly drinkable.
50cl of Christmas Ale at 7.6% from Utobeer, Borough Market. A slightly hazy golden brown with a small and rapidly fading off-white head. Rich christmas cake aroma with glace fruit, brandy, port, raisins and caramel and just a hint of vanilla. Thick, oily, texture, with a luscious booze-soaked fruit cake flavour - with chunks of apricot and pineapple as well as raisins and sultanas. The finish is warming and port-like and covers the alcohol really well. Excellent, even though Christmas was five months ago.
