3.33/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

First we tried Bad Elf, then Very Bad Elf, and now Santa's Butt. All good little beers and not offensive at all. The appearance was very typical for an English Porter with it's coffee color and slight head.

My first smell was not impressive and my first thought was B.O., as in body odor. Hubby responded with something to the effect that it IS Santa's Butt. (Touche') The smell got a little better as it sat, getting maltier and sweeter.

The taste was sweet and malty with a slight hoppiness. I tasted a bit of chocolate and toffee. A good example of the beer type.

The mouthfeel was average and I will enjoy this Xmas brew again.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a pale tan color, in the glass it is dark brown/black. A white head tops the beer, light freshly fallen snow on coal.

S: Grainy bread, toffee and coffee. Definitely an English Yeast strain. Almost a smokey thing going on in there.

T: Bread and toffee come through. There is a light fruitiness to it, and the finish has a little more of the coffee flavor.

M: Fairly light as far as the body goes, though there is a little creaminess to it. Carbonation is lively.

O: Overall a good example of the style, classic English porter. Tasty.
