3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very dark brown body with clear ruby tones, beige good head, poor lacing.
Aroma; malts, dusts and a bowl of nuts. Taste; dark malts, dark prunes, mealy liquorice, dusty hops, dark fruit wine. Finishes a bit flourish, mostly dark malts, sweet and fruity. Feels full bodied, sweet, dry fields too. Overall a good and warming evening sipper, with xmas fruits and nuts in a bowl nearby. Cognac’s not necessary anymore...

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very dark reddish brown with a big, beige head. Milk chocolate sweetness in the aroma, but flavours of date, caramel and tawny port in the taste, but without the sweetness of a port. Very little bitterness from the hops. Very smooth taste and big mouth feel. Long lingering finish of milky coffee flavours.The sample was from a 33cl bottle brewed in 2013.
