str023 (123) - Stokmarknes, - 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!

Cimbasso (86) - - AUG 19, 2014
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.

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2014
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell during the Gunnar Tasting. Thanks to Gunnar for this one! Pours ruby-brown with a creamy tan head. The nose has rich bread, old fruits and alcohol. Medium sweet flavor with bready malts, faint milk chocolate, booze, earth, leather. Medium bodied with fine carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. Moderately warming to finish with dark brett, more aged fruits and light earthy bitterness. Good one.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2014 Dark ruby. Beige head. Pure and refreshing aroma of toffee, dark chocolate and hops. Taste of dark malts, dark chocolate and dates balanced with bitterness, perhaps with a slight hint of citrus and pine. An excellent yule tide beer! Round mouthfeel.
