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.

A wonderful surprise from Aass. Brown color, full body, caramel sweetness with some bitterness and a hint of sour. By far the best Norwegian christmas beer I tasted in 2011, and hopefully a sign that the large breweries are finally taking up the challenge from the micro brewers.

Bottle. Immediately after popping the cap, a heavy aroma of malty sweetness, some roasted malt and dried fruits escapes the bottle. It pours a nice ruby copper body, clear, with a small, firm beige head. Prunes, sultana raisins, dark grapes, caramel and some alcohol fill in the blanks in the aroma. It’s quite effervescent, full-bodied and with a pleasant warmth from the alcohol. The flavor has roasted malt, raisins and prunes, fruity and slightly piney hops and some alcohol. As the beers warms up, some mocha occurs. The finish has a nice lasting bitterness to balance the sweetness. A quite complex beer that is in the same league as Julebokk from their competitor Ringnes. It’s maybe a bit evident on the higher alcohols, but really pleasant and works nicely as a by-the-fire beer, or with some nuts and a slice of cheese. Don’t let it get too warm, as some notes of cooked vegetables then shows up. (081212)

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).

330 ml bottle. Dark, reddish brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of malt, raisins, prunes and spices. Flavor of sweet malt, dry fruit, a hint of caramel, balanced bitterness and warming alcohol. I find the palate surprisingly mild, but this is anyway a really nice and balanced beer.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 Old rating rerated 01.12.2013, 0,33l bottle (2012) @ home:
Big creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly rich and balanced, caramel malts, dried dark fruits, nuts, malt candy, butterscotch, grass, hints of coffee, chocolate and licorice. Taste is slightly sweet and oxidized, caramel malts, grass, nuts, butterscotch, malt candy, dried dark fruits, coffee. Medium bitterness. Nice one, a lot better aged for a year than fresh.

Sigmund (5320) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 27, 2008
330 ml bottle, ABV is 9%. A strong top fermented Yule/Christmas beer from Aass, nice. Very dark brown colour, creamy and lasting tan head. Pleasant aroma of dark malts, caramel, brown sugar and oak, hints of Christmas spices. Full and rich mouthfeel. The flavour is malty sweet with loads of caramel, also notes of chocolate, to some degree balanced by acceptable hops. A decent barleywine, will go better with fruitcake and nuts than the traditional Norwegian Yule/Christmas dinner.

04.02.2009, 0,33l Bottle. Very strong and powerful beer. Aroma is malty, roasted and sweet with caramel and spisdes. The alcohol content (9%abv) also gives the beer a nice strength. There is also some bitternes. Very nice.
