Jule-Avec nytes gjerne alene eller som dessert øl. Sødmen gjør at det også passer utmerket til nøtter og småkaker og serveres gjerne i et stort Cognac glass. Serveringstemperatur ca 10 grader Celsius.

Pours dark, dark brown with a small brownish head. Aromas of chocolate, cocoa powder and banana. Chocolate and dried fruits in the mouth, some sweet sherry notes. A tiny bit of sourness, and some warming alcohol on the finish. Pretty tasty stuff. Bottle from Vinmonopolet Storo with best before date May 2014.

Skinnyviking (7236) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2012
Courtesy of Rune. Bottle. High creamy and long lasting light brown head. Very dark red brown body. Came rushing from the bottle. Roasted malt caramel cocoa nuts aroma. Bittersweet flavor of roasted malt caramel and cocoa with a hint of raisin and alcohol in the background. Not as sweet as feered. Low carbonation. Long aftertaste. Actually quite nice.

Palme (3591) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 23, 2011
0.33l bottle. This is a daark dark deep brown beer with a big massive tan head. Lovely chocolate aroma with notes of coffee, roasted malts, coffee and nuts. The carbonation levels are gentle to average and the mouthfeel on this one can only be described as thick, syrupy and oily. It has lots of flavor! Chocolate, cookies, chocolate ice cream, branches, rum raisins, ends really really drymouthing - or mouthdrying if you prefer, and it ends in a nice warming finish. Really solid!

Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours dark brown with a light brown head. Caramel sweetness with aroma of roasted malt, dried fruits, chocolate and coffee. Medium sweet with some bitterness in the finish. A very pleasant winter beer!

Finn (4402) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2011
Flaske 0,33l fra Vinmonopolet Tromsø - Sentrum. Ultradyprød. Høyt svakt farget skum luftig som fester seg til glasset. Forsiktig aroma av røstet malt. Smaken er avrundet. Myk munnfølelse. Litt ubestemmelig frukt. Tørket aprikos? Behagelig. Svakt syrlig ettersmak. Kan gjerne erstatte cognacen. Hele året for min del. KI=8

str023 (123) - Stokmarknes, NORWAY - NOV 25, 2011
Julen 2011. Pours a thick beige head and a very dark, almost black, body. Sweet and fruty aroma of coffe, dark caramel, chocolate and dried fruit. Sweet taste with a roasty finish mixed with licorice. Nice mouthfeel which starts out fizzy, and then transforms into a smooth oily texture. What a great juleøl for Berentsen...once again!
