3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Moderately fresh, malty, a fulness embraced by a slight alcohol aroma and bitterness.A little unbalanced beer that could be better but I think it was good. God jul :)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle traded with Cunningham. Aroma of caramel, dried fruit and nuts. Quite fruity, no alcohol detected, with the exeption of a pleasant warm feeling in the finish. Light sweet, light bitter taste, not too complex but nicely balanced and pleasantly mellow. A very nice Christmas sipper.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.
