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

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - DEC 4, 2003
Dark dirty brown color with a minimal head. Malty, nutty aroma. Not as sweet as I expected. Full-bodied in its flavor. A fairly dry-roasted aftertaste. I believe the GREEN bottle sat for awhile on the shelve. Don't know if this helped it any or not. It was still a pleasing beer.

Bottle from Ica, Vikersund. Clear, reddish brown colour. Finger-thick offwhite head that reduces quickly. Slightly sweet malty aroma quite well balanced with soft hop bitterness. Finishes too sour. Very average brew that failed to induce xmas emotions.

This beer is interesting. It has a wet palate, but a dry aftertaste. I like the caramel flavor which is also very noticeable in the aroma.

Fairly pleasant. I don’t taste any spices, but I agree with everyone about it being a fine Vienna. Reminds me a lot of Negra Modelo.

Bottles. Actually, several. Pours dark reddish brown with a finger of light tan head that fades fast. Some lace. Aroma is sweet, caramel and roasted notes, some burnt sugar. A metallic bitterness saves it from being overly sweet. Body is quite light, a bit too thin. Carbonation a bit too sparkly. Otherwise, it’s not bad. Tasty, but plain.

330 ml bottle @ my parents place December 23,2012. Amber in color.Aroma of malt,caramel and dried fruit. A bit thin and weak in taste,but i guess 4,5 ABV is the reason. Ok and descent beer.

Hmm, thought this would be more of a Jubel or Celebration style. This is a Belgian?!? Pours a dark translucent brown with some head and just a bit of lacing. Smells, well, skunky, to be honest. Damn if they didn't put this into a green bottle. While I realize that they don't get much sunlight in Norway, the rest of the world does. Tastes not as skunky, thankfully, but still not great. Think of a fruity Newcastle Brown; yeah, that's it, with a little more mouthfeel and fruity flavors. Mouthfeels is nothing special for this style. Drinkability is okay, but again nothing special. Hmph. I was looking forward to this beer, too.

StilleStorm (474) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2013
DWG; Pours dark amber with fast fading creamy off-white head. Nose is sweet malty caramell with notes of spice. Taste much the same with watery palate and short bitter finish. Merry Christmas.
