A good Velvety ipa. Very good body and great carbonation. Hoppy and light citrusy aroma. In flavor citrus spreads broadly with a nice hoppy ending. A different and fresh summer brew with some body to it. Great color!Earned the I Believe in IPA! (Level 25) badge!
Nutty aroma. Very good malt flavor combined with light coffee and nuts. It’s sadly a little to over-carbonated, and don’t suit this brew well. A fuller body and lesser carbonation would be preferred.

Roasted barley, dark malt, spices and herbs in aroma and flavor. It’s a lot of flavor indeed, but a little to overwhelming for me. A little over-carbonated for me aswell. I get a Christmas feel, absolutely! But just not for me. 🎄Earned the Middle of the Road (Level 48) badge!
Consistent of a thin milky stout. Coffee aroma, likewise in flavor but with a malt syrup sweetness. Flavor sits short in palate. It’s flat, and that would work great with a thicker body, but it’s just to watery. It’s ok, but so many better out there.Earned the Style Hunt: Dark Ale badge!
A tasty wheat beer with malty undertone. Instant wheat and yeast on the nose. The wheat is dominant in flavor with a malt touch and a tickle of cherry at end. On the edge of being over-carbonated, but just within. Tasty but not a x-mas favorite.
A very broad stout malt flavor, with hints of chocolate and vanilla sweetness. Chocolate and malt on the nose, but very wide in flavor. Hangs awhile in palate and a light bitterness combined with sweetness is a great combo. Good color & carbonation.
Roasted nuts and dark sweet syrupy malt on nose and in flavor. Lovely color, body and carbonation. A sweet syrupy body lies in palate after ending, and it feels good. Maybe some light spiced hops as backbone but without dominantion. Just great x-mas beer!
Yet another treat from Icelandic Einstok. Lightly roasted malt and barely on the nose and in flavor. Great mild sourness at end, a lovely mixture of fruitiness and piney bitterness. Just wonderful. Good carbonation. Flavor sits a little in palate.Earned the Brew Lagoon badge!
A rather thin bodied ale. Light nutty and coffee aroma. Flavors of malt, caramel, coffee and lightly raisin touch in the back. Good carbonation and flavor sits a little in palate. It’s good but a rather common flavor. Minus for the watery body.
A strong Bock from Ringnes. Lovely dark color and very good carbonation. With its 9% it’s strength dominating all flavor, and I’d wished for more Christmas flavors within. Some wider malt flavor or coffee, nuts or prunes would be nice. Good body though.Earned the Middle of the Road (Level 47) badge! Earned the 99 Bottles (Level 88) badge!
A beautiful and strong x-mas beer. Lovely color, carbonation, strength and flavor. A mild malt aroma but much wider in flavor. Dark malt syrup make this a really wonderful Christmas treat. No spices or gingerbread style, just dark flavorful malt in palateEarned the Year in Beer (2022) badge!
A mild anis and malt aroma on the nose. Mid thick body. almost a little creamy and good carbonation. Malt flavored but with a nice licorice backbone in ending. Fades out a little to fast though.Earned the For the Can (Level 92) badge!
A weird feeling tryin’ this out. At first a light spiced and malty aroma. Than a weird mix of spices, wood and a tobacco feel, so definitely not a favorite for me. Good carbonation, but an unpleasant woody flavor at end. Interesting, just not for me.Earned the I'll Be Bock (Level 3) badge!
Wow, this one gets your x-mas spirit goin’ Lovely round maltiness, mid body and a roasted touch. Caramel, nuts, bread and a very, very lightly spiced touch, make this a great one. Malty aroma. Very good carbonation. Yummy!
A x-mas Saison is interesting. Especially with a touch of Myrica gale in there. Quite anonymous on the nose, but wider flavor of oaths, orange peel and a wildlife touch from the gale. Also strength. A little over carbonated but within. Love the print!Earned the Middle of the Road (Level 46) badge!
A great red ale with good full body, without being heavy. Great malt flavor and splendid color. Taste Christmas without a lot of spices, yet it keep the holiday wibe. Flavor sits a while in palate. Great carbonation.Earned the Middle of the Road (Level 45) badge! Earned the Paint the Town Red (Level 5) badge!
An extremely mellow wheat beer. A touch wheat, a sprinkle fruitiness, a pinch sweetness combined with good carbonation, and you have this brew. Not any dominating flavors just good balance overall. But again, not an explosive happening.Earned the Wit, Weiss, and Weizen (Level 2) badge!
