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!

Bottle enjoyed at home
Dark brown, finger thick tanned head. Smells of burned malts, yeast esters, cloves and hints of chocolate. Taste is super malty with a nice sweetness touch. Also some chocolate and alcohol. Feel is quite oily and dry. Quite bitter finish, malt bitter for sure. The downside is that a whole bottle of this is too much for me

Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours dark with a light head. Rich aroma of malt and red berries a bit coffe. Taste follows tha aroma, mouthfeel is a bit thick but fits this beer well. Overall a good beer on cold winter days like now mmm..

Bottle. Very very black in my large snifter. Virtually no head. Smells of sweet red berries, kinda like strawberries, but with some maltiness. Low carbonation, thick mouthfeel. Initially it tastes of sweet malt, some hints of coffee, red berries, some slightly piny hops. A bit candylike and probably not the best choice so close to bedtime. There is some bitterness in the aftertaste. Perhaps a tiny bit too cold (10 C).

Black core with slighter brown/red rim. Almost no head, unclean glass? Aroma; Spice (cloves, some sweet cocoa and licorice. Flavour; A very thick, creamy carbonation and I love that. Not to much going on flavourwise, but a good spice tone here aswell, followed by sweet licorice in a long finish. A slight alcoholtouch in the backend. Summary; They are aiming to get this to 12%, but with that I think the alcohol will be to dominant. It´s a good beer, love the mouthfeel but I wish there was more going on. Also, maybe a hint to sweet for the average beer-nerd?

Gr0ve (2113) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2010
330 ml bottle. Black with some red hues. Clear. Tall fluffy beige head that clings to the glass. Spicy nose with a strong roasted malt aroma. Rich caramel malt flavours with a strong sweet tarry licorice flavour. Ashy notes. Body is not that big and the beer comes through as quite drinkable.
