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

Not the best christmas beer I know. A tiny hint of caramel, the rest isn’t christmassy at all, no spices or malty notes. Quite refreshing, and not thin at all.

Pours dark brown with very little head. Aromas of healthy malt, some caramel, grain. Dry in the mouth with good malty aromas, some caramel, and a hint of licorice. Well made - Aass is definitely one of the best big breweries in Norway

Lambister (232) - FINLAND - NOV 18, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2013 33 cl can. Superb look of dark red with hints of brown. Has large white head. Pretty neutral nose. Has aromas of caramel but sweetness is not all over other aromas. Carbonation is pretty low, longer after taste would be beneficial for brew. Still a good one.

Holmen1 (2791) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2012
0,33 boks hjemme: nydelig rubinrød farge og høyt, tett skum som desverre daler raskt. Frisk, middels fyldig smak og kort, tørr ettersmak. OK til 4,7%, og vil sikkert passe til julemat, men som ølnytelse blir det etter noen slurker for tynt.

330ml bottle. Aroma of roasted malt with some caramel notes. A bit metallic. Nice dark amber color body with an off-white head. Medium sweet taste with a light bitter ending.

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2012
A clear dark amber/brown colour, whilst the head is off-white. Moderately malty aroma, taste is also malty, some roast and a slight cardboard feel. (Bottle)

KongKalle (12) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2012
Without the extra fullness and balance more alcohol strong beers provides, it was to unbalanced for me. It still has a good Christmas feel, with some roasted malt, caramel, spice and a nice touch of Christmas baking. This is also one of the more full-bodied beers from Norwegian grocery stores, even if it does not give enough balance.

From bottle. Brown, clear. Surprisingly refreshing for a christmas beer. Well balanced sweetness and bitterness with nice fruity aromas.
