Pours an offwhite head with a dark amber color body. The head disappears relatively quickly. Aroma of malt, spice and biscuit. Thin palate with a metallic mouthfeel. Ok beer but not overly impressed. I miss some roastyness and caramel malt aroma sice this is a "juleøl".

Many thanks for this bottle to McTapps. Brown color, small but steady white head. Grassy and malty aroma. Grassy, alcoholic, a bit sweetish flavor.

Classic winterbrew shared with McTapps. Full bodied with some caramel, malt and alcohol. Rye and earth also. Good one for sure.

Beer from trade with Henrik - many thanks! It pours out of the bottle in a deep dark amber - brown colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of caramel and malt. Taste of caramel, spices, herbs, dark grains, straw, hops and barley. Very nice and easy to drink, I enjoyed it.

Wischylini (133) - Grimstad, NORWAY - DEC 26, 2013
Pours a perfectly clear cherry red, with no head at all. Aromas are malty, caramels and butter notes being the most noticeable, but also some dried fruits and spices. The taste is rather sweet, and should have had some bitterness to round it off. The mouthfeel is "macro-ish" and nothing out of the ordinary.
