Juletilpassa bokkøl, mørk og med god fylde. Ølet er svakt krydra med sitron og appelsin, noko som merkast på syrligheta.

Bottle at beer festival. Told it has had extra long storage. Poured a tanned brown with an off white head. Aromas were reminiscent of Christmas soda as sold in southern Norway (the combination of caramel, citrus and orange). Good bitterness, feels freshly hoppy with slight carbonation.

Medium beige head. Deep dark red body with small particles. Earthy fruity spicy aroma with herbal cardamom notes. Sweet spicy cinnamon and cardamom taste with fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish spicy cinnamon and cardamom aftertaste with licorice and ginger notes. Very spicy, and perhaps even a bit too spicy. (0.33l bottle, from wine monopoly.)
