The flavor on this Christmas ale is rich and quite full of sweetness and roasted notes. Mikkeller Santa’s Little Helper pours a hazy, dark brown color with a nice, fluffy head. The aroma is definitely seasonal, smelling of malts, cinnamon, cardamom and nutmeg. There’s some hints of toffee and raw sugar in the background. It’s dry and spicy to the the taste. It’s the perfect companion for a frosty, winter’s night.
