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.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2010 Bottle 2010 from Vinmonopolet. Pours dark brown/red. Aroma of dark fruits, malt, and som christmas spices. The taste follows the aroma, no big supprises. Have looked forward to taste this beer due to many friends complementing this beer. Sorry Aass, this did not do it for me, it just goes in line with the other uninterresting beers made by the big breweries in Norway.

"2010 edition". Pours a rather black-red brew, tiny head which disappears very quickly, leaving it virtually headless. Nose is fruity with hints of coffee. Aroma is surprisingly lacking, but I still detect a burnt maltiness, pear, cherry, raspberry, licorice, alcohol and a little bit "medicine". The 9 % alcohol is unfortunately very present and not very pleasant. Taste is sweet and bitter, though in my mouth not well balanced, leaning heavily towards bitter and almost acetic, I guess that’s because of the alcohol. The finish is short, almost astringently bitter/alcoholic, with a slightly smoky leather aroma. Carbonation is surprisngly lively for such a headless beer. It feels moderately thick in my mouth. Overall a bit disappointing to me.

ClubGonzo (4370) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2010
Bottle. Pours a near-black deep brown body with a small, quickly disappearing beige head. Aroma is sweet dark malts, brown sugar and hints of booze. Taste is dark malt sugars, propelled by alcohol, with hints of figs and pepper. Quite a bit of warming alcohol, but it is fairly well blended and does nothing but compliment the overall taste. A fairly good Christmas ale, and certainly better than it’s 6,5% ABV counterparts in the Norwegian Xmas beer field. Nevertheless, it does not retain enough complexity to tickle my pickle, so to speak.

bergstaden (1472) - Røros, NORWAY - JAN 6, 2010
Outside it is 36 degrees celcius below zero, need something to warm me up. Dark amber with huge off white head, strong aroma of malt -- same with the taste, lot of malts, hints of caramel and roast, olso nice bitterness from hops that evens out the sweetness, well done -- what draws down is the aftertaste of alcohol, but still good beer

Gr0ve (2167) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2009
330 ml bottle. Black with reddish hues. Medium-sized fine laced off-white head. Acetaldehyde aroma with red berries and caramel. Smooth texture. Hints of higher alcohols. Lots of sweetness in here. And apples. There’s enough hop bitterness to balance out most of the sweets, so the beer feels nicely balanced. Except for all the acetaldehyde, which indicates a fermentation issue. Anyway, it’s a decent double bock.

Bottled. A dark red beer with a thin brown head. The aroma has notes of caramel,malt, and bread. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of caramel, malt, and bread, leading to a dry bready finish. Thanks Rune for this beer.
