COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ever got the idea that Santa likes to give out presents during christmas? Wrong! Mr. Saint Nicolaus or whatever his name is, likes to sit in his leather chair or or on the ice bear carpet, dipping bread crumbs in his cheese fondue and eats chocolate like Sylvester Stallone eats cottage cheese. And then Santa likes to drink Shameless Santa. A Belgian strong Red Ale, playing and using all the cheap tricks of the trade. Caramel malts, sugars, highly attenuated yeast profile, fruity novel hops as Mandarina Bavaria and Calypso. This is one greasy balanced beer that suits any situation involving Christmas, New Years Eve and any other event that involves roasted marshmallows.

NiklasT (135) - SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2017 Amber, hazy. Aroma dominated by typical christmas spices. Taste not so much, more dates, figs and raisins. Some yeastiness and bitterness also comes along.

Finn (8267) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2017
Flaske 750ml fra Vinmonopolet Tromsø Langnes. Delt med flere under juleølsmaking på Gleipne 17 Nov 17. Ultramørk aprikosfarget. Høyt mokkafarget skum. Spotlacing. Lett krydderaroma. Silkemyk munnfølelse. Smaken lett søt ingefær med hint av kanel.

Rune (13647) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2017
750ml bottle shared with Egil Børge, Leif, Odd and Finn. Big, bubbly off-white head with fine duration. Dark apricot coloured body, decent lacework on the glass. Dried fruity aroma, doughy. Rich malt-fruity taste including caramel, wood and dried fruits sustained by a touch of cinnamon. Lingering malt-fruity ending, rather sweet. Slow sipper with Yuletide qualities. (Tasting session of Christmas beers, Tromsø 17.11.2017).

nuplastikk (6476) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 17, 2017
750ml bottle. Rather beastly Belgian Amber Strong Ale type thing. Heavy handed, not really nailing it in a Belgian way. The amber malt is thick, lending a big cherry tone. Odd fusel tinged Winter Warmer aroma. Malt liquor like at times, not unlike a Barleywine as well. Not really that impressive of an offering.

StilleStorm (1582) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 12, 2017
DWFADSJT; Poured moderate, hazy cover with a lasting, lacing off-white head. Nose is moderate to heavy, malt, sugar, yeast, moderate citrus, spice and light floral. Taste is heavy sweet and bitter with a lasting sweet, sugary, malt finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

TorbenJensen (1576) - Valby, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2017
Moderate foaming beer with fine aroma of caramel and dried fruits. The taste varies over a little plum and raisin, thyme and anise. It has a slightly sharp taste of alcohol in the end, but generally it seems that it is a bit too messy in its composition. There is no theme or edge in the flavors, but it is okay.

alteregoo (1786) - Kalisz, POLAND - OCT 15, 2017
Piana obfita, drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa, niezbyt trwała. Barwa czerwono bursztynowa, lekko opalizująca. W aromacie troszkę owoców w typie gruszek, jabłek, czereśni, do tego karmel i odrobina ziół. W smaku półsłodkie, głównie dojrzałe czerwone owoce, karmel, ciemny cukier, migdały i solidna goryczkowa kontra z pestkowym posmakiem. Niskie wysycenie, rozgrzewający alkohol, oleista faktura.


Generalnie wyszło dość ciężkie, deserowe piwo, z mało intensywnym zapachem i na dłuższą metę męczące.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2017 old backlog. Trademark estery belgian brown strong ale. Sweet, maltym with notes of dried fruits.

4.2
Samtzu (607) - Palmerston North, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 22, 2017
750ml bottle. Pours a deep amber with slight off white head. Fruit and spice on the nose. Starts off as a medium body which quickly develops into a full body. Flavour is originally bitter but again quickly develops into an extremely rich sweet fruit and spice profile. The finish is a little bit of a let down as the alcohol comes through and the compelxity wears off. I would love to put another bottle down for a few years to see if this removes the end tastes.
