This is actually close to perfect! The body, and the combination of bitterness and sweetness is fantastic! Tastes and smells of coffee, chewing gum, licorice, dark fruits and heavy christmas.

Holmen2 (622) - NORWAY - JAN 18, 2014
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.

Holmen1 (2272) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 25, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2014 Flaske hjemme på 1.juledag: aldeles perfekt til nøtter og tørkede frukter og en runde gin rummy! Litt portvinsaktig bitterhet uten den sødme. Et glimrende nippeøl som gjør den mørkeste årstiden litt lysere. Flaske av 09-årgangen hos Arve, mars-13: en delikat aroma med bl.a. litt tranebær. En fantastisk rund, kompleks smak og laang ettersmak. Et strålende øl, synd at Berentsen bare lager det til jul.

Mørk brunrød farge med brunt høy skum. Aroma av kaffe søtlig fruktig og noe sitrus. Smaker meget godt av sødme, fruktig sammen med kaffe. Fyldig og god ettersmak og medium pluss bitter. "liker"

markschiedon (170) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle, 33cl. In the aroma I smell roast malt and caramel. The beer is brown and has quite a big head. In the taste I have hazelnuts and hop bitterness. Sweet and bitter are in balance. Medium carbonated.

Palme (3163) - 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!

alfhansen (35) - Bryne, NORWAY - DEC 13, 2012
33 cl bottle at home. This is a beautifully made Old Ale, with aromas and tastes reminiscent of imperial stouts I have tried in the past. Aroma makes me think of nuts and dried fruit, taste brings me even deeper into that territory. It promises to be a Christmas dessert in and of itself, and it delivers. Well played, Berentsen.
