Great beer. Nice aromas, but a little lack of aftertaste. Reminds me of Underlig Jul, but softer.

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2013 500ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Beige, small and long lasting head. Amber body. Sweet aroma of alcohol and raisins, and a hint of apricot, hay and pine. Malty sweetness. Best served slightly below room temperature. In my opinion a very good christmas beer.

StilleStorm (672) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2013
DWG; Pours copper with medium lasting off- white frothy head. Nose is perfumed with spices, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, berries and dark fruits, a Christmas adventure. Taste profile mirrors adding caramell and chocolate. Oily texture, soft carbonated. Bitter, spicy and sweet finish. Very Merry Christmas.

Palme (3237) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2012
0.5l bottle. This is a near-clear dark cola brown one, lots of small particles swirling around and a medium sized off-white top that’s leaving big lacings down the sides of the glass. On the nose I get a subtle woody-acidity mixed with bot a strong caramel dark sweetness and a nice spiciness with sweet gingerbread and allspice. There is also traces of chocolate and roasted malts with a swiff of smoke when it heats up a bit. Quite nice stuff. It has a nice thick oily mouthfeel with a average carbonation level. It’s a bit more straight forward in the taste. The ginger and sweet gingerbread dominates, sweetness backed up by a soft woody acidity before it ends in a Christmassy finish with traces of alcohol. It sets the mood definitely. Really enjoyable, and in my opinion much better than Ægirs earlier years Juleøl. This really made my day after a shitty day @ the job. 01.11.2012
