COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: Changed name from Juleøl Premium to Vellagret Juleøl November 2014. The beer formerly known as Juleøl, 6.5%, is now known as Juleøl Premium.

Aass Juleøl Premium er et overgjæret sterkøl som passer utmerket til julens tradisjonelle retter, eller som kun nytes for kosens skyld. Den gode smaken ligger i ølets styrke. Fargen er mørk brun. Svært rik maltduft med aromaer av julens krydder. Flott fyldig smak med noe sødmepreget anslag av mørk sjokolade. Avsluttes med en behagelig bitterhet.

Bottle at home. Vintage 2011. Has a deep reddish brown colour with a beige medium and a bit creamy head. Aromas of dried fruit, wood, leather and some chocolate. More dried fruit in a sweet flavour along with much of the same and some smoke in the end. Has a slick and rich mouthfeel, and a light bitterness. The beer has a nice balance and richness, a Christmas classic.

Snegurochka (389) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2012
330ml bottle with pinnekjøtt@Mother-in-law’s Dec.28th 2012. Deep brown body. Berries, prunes, plums and spices. Hint of alcohol in taste. I prefer their regular Juleøl or Mack juleøl both with food or just to drink.

A little too much of the smokyness, too. Dark and heavy and tasty otherwise.

visionthing (2969) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 27, 2012
33cl bottle from Vinmonopolet (2011). Pours very dark ruby with an off-white to beige head. Aroma of dark dried fruits, caramel and some roasty notes. Sweet and fruity with a lightly bitter finish. Alcohol is well integrated. Decent Christmas beer. (2012-11-24)

Holmen1 (2766) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2014 Flaske hjemme: skulle ønske at Aass kunne brygge dette hele året, skulle i så fall kjøpt det ofte. Desidert deres beste øl, enda bedre enn bokkølet. Innsmigrende aroma av krydder, malt, mørk karamell og litt humle, og smaken er helt upåklagelig - fyldig og balansert. De 9% kjennes først i magen. Et skikkelig koseøl både før og etter maten (hvis man absolutt må spise).

ABS (552) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 14, 2012
Pours deep brown, red hue. Red fruit and alcohol nose. Malt, red fruit, lots of alcohol and some water aroma. Good though. Some carbonation. Sweet. Bitter ending.

esp0r (2088) - NORWAY - NOV 4, 2012
2011 vintage bottle enjoyed at home
Pours brown, dark brown in glass, big beige head. Smells of milk chocolate, some roasted malts and dried fruits. Medium sweet, quite dry for an ale, some nuts and raisins, also caramel. Moderate bitter, some malt bitterness. A quite ok beer from Aass, as a Yule seasonal i guess it won’t offense many norwegian beer drinkers, but not shock them either. Quite average

Dark brown body with a shade of red, small disappearing beige head. Dark fruits and burned malt dominates both the aroma and taste, while the taste also brings hints of cinnamon and alcohol. A decent christmas beer from Aass.

Cunningham (4899) - Halden, NORWAY - JUN 25, 2012
Deep reddish colour with a tan head. Rich malty and a fine fruity aroma. Rich malty flavour, but also a fine fruityness and some spices. Probably by far the best of the "old traditional" norwegian christmas beers. A very well hidden alcohol as well. Enjoy.
[Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Halden, Norway]

JohnRMurdoch (3398) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 16, 2012
Bottle from Rune. Dark brown colour, not much head. Looks like cola. Sickly sweet malty aroma. Strong sweet candy malt flavour. Unbalanced. Not my sort of beer.
