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!

Nesten svart med brunt skum. Svak lukt med en del nøtter. Samme i smaken sammen med tørket frukt. Intetsigende ettersmak. Merker lite til alkoholen. Hadde gledet meg til denne på julekvelden, lettere skuffet.

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...
