COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sweet, caramel aroma. Clean, crisp taste, and an almost dry aftertaste. Interesting and complex. Very flavorful with strong malt presence.

To me, this is what a Norwegian beer is. They don’t smack you in the face, but have well rounded, very satisfying flavours. Decent head, nice colour, excellent flavour. Bottle.

Aroma was like a maly powder to mix chocolate milk with. Brown body but held to light has a red hue. Small head normal whith christmas beers. Body was little thin. Malt all the way for the flavor of this one sometimes chalky. Dry aftertaste on palate.

MiP (13047) - Sĝnderborg, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2006
Bottle. Faintly dusty aroma. Clear, dark brown colour, no head. OK maltiness in flavour, a little coffee and a hint of cardboard. Thin mouthfeel. The flavour is OK, but the mouthfeel is disappointing.

Gr0ve (2113) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 7, 2006
330 ml bottle. Clear dark brown. Well carbonated. Throws an average head. Pleasant aroma, but could have had much more hops and more malt sweetness. Lacking in body, which makes the beer taste watery. Some mellow notes of roasted malts. Disappointing.

yngwie (12721) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 24, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2007 Bottled. Reddish-brown with small off-white head. Mostly roasted and light sweet malt in both aroma and flavor. Bitterness in the finish. (051123)

larsga (5965) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 4, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2005 Medium, creamy, tan head with a spattering of larger bubbles; clear, dark winy red body. Sweet aroma of syrup, cinnamon, and some roast malts. Aroma is quite thick and satisfying. Roasty taste, with a dry finish, which lingers in the mouth, together with the roastiness. On further acquaintance, a bit watery. A good Christmas beer; could use a bit more sharpness, but a good effort. Certainly better than expected. (0.33l bottle.)

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 11, 2005
Aged for a few years: Pours a muddy dark copper with some off-white bubbles. Aroma is lightly skunked, but still has a lot of sweet, chocolatey caramel malt and dark fruity complexity. Starts with lots, of sugary malt, dark fruits and decent complexity. This is probably 2+ years old, but has held up well.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - SEP 4, 2005
Let’s start by saying this bottle is probably a few years old. I wonder if it is still made. Poured a murky brown color. Aroma of lightly skunked malt at the start. As the beer warmed this became replaced by creamy chocolate drink (almost like yahoo), very light spice, and aged malt. Flavor is thin and old like a watered down cold hot cocoa. There is a touch of spice on the finish. This beer was definitely on its last legs.

Bottled. This one didn’t really have anything going for it. Malt was overpowered any flavot it had.
