Clear medium to dark orange amber colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white to light beige head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, spicy, moderate hoppy, christmas spices, nuttmeg, clove. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, spices, christmas spices, pine needles, allspice. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

saxo (13875) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle @ fonefan tasting. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are rich xmas spices like cloves, coriander, orange, anise, but also caramel, malt and hops. A little too spicy for me.

yngwie (13374) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle, at Kristiansand Ølfestival. It’s a lightly unclear beer, brown in color and topped by a dense, beige head. Rather spiced aroma, but balanced and not over the top in any way. Ginger, cardamom, some faint notes of yeast and alcohol, and caramel maltyness. The flavor has a good bitterness, as well as lots of spices. As for the aroma, the spices isn’t pushing, but certainly present. Caramel and some alcohol notes too. Full body. Lasting finish with spices, bitterness and some caramel. A well brewed spiced Christmas beer, tasteful and sort of easy drinkable. 121013

Bottle at Beer Hunters. Vintage 2013. Hazy red color, small off-white head, some lace. Aroma of berries and cardamon. Medium-bodied. Berryish, some caramel and "Christmas" spices. Too Xmas spicey for my liking.

Rune (7995) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 25, 2012
500ml bottle bought at Vinmonopolet Tromsø Langnes. Steady, off-white head to a near-clear, rustic coloured body. Spotty lacing to the glassware. Inviting aroma of chocolate malts supported by Christmas spices. Initial taste of chocolate and candy gradually joined by fresh fruity notes and herbal hops on a backbone of subdued ginger. Smooth, bittersweet finish. Well balanced and fine bodied. Nice Yuletide feel (Bella Notte at home, 24.12.2012).
