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.

Draught at Mikkeller and Friends, Copenhagen
Hazy dark amber color with red hue, creamy head. Aroma of candy-ish malt. Full bodied, sweet malt flavor, with that fruity cloying character typical of American attempts at Belgian styles; strong bitterness, and strong alcohol warmth that balances the sweetness.
Messy.
