Stenbogaard Julestout Brewery: Stensbogaard

Type: Christmas Stout

Alcohol: 7.8%

Country: Denmark

The third day of Christmas brings my first Christmas stout of the season. Actually this is my first Christmas stout ever. I was really happy to see a few holiday themed stouts as I am not really a fan of the normal Christmas ales, for the most part anyway. This pours very very dark with a one finger tan head that dissipates fast leaving little trace on the glass. The smell is quite odd, the normal roasted malt, and chocolatey coffee smell of a stout is there but it is buried under a spicy coppery smell. The taste is of a normal high alcohol stout, dark chocolate and coffee with a licorice undertone. There is just a hint of Christmas spices, coriander, clove ect. but not too pronounced. It is kind of hard to characterize this stout as it is a little too unbalanced to be a good strong stout and not really enough Christmas spicieness to qualify as a good Christmas beer. A mixed bag at best.
