Rune (8493) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 24, 2008
330ml bottle, vintage 08, from Vinmonopolet. Initial dense and huge, off-white head, gradually fading to a low level of foam. Fragile lacings on the glass, Nice rosewood body. Smell of sweet chocolate malts. Flavoured with cocoa and roasted dark malts holding notes of both caramel and chocolate. Discreet bitterness on the swallow. Tolerable sweetness. Medium bodied. Absolutely some yuletide mood from this one [at home decorating the Christmas tree, 21.12.2008].

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 26, 2008
Sampled at BDR’s tasting and shared by akevitt. Pours a semi-clear caramel amber brew with a thin off-white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and ring, and leaves behind a spotty lacing. Aroma of brown and caramel malt, some light brown sugar, toffee and some smoked wood. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonated with flavors of toasted dark malt, milk chocolate and a touch of licorice. Finish is slightly bitter, a tad gritty texture with some toasted and burnt dark malt flavors.

akevitt (97) - Valhalla, Minnesota, USA - APR 30, 2008
Bottle from trade with yngwie. The beer was clear brown with thin eggshell color foam. In the aroma and flavor I got malt, mild spices, some alcohol, and an unusual smokiness.

Thanks to akevitt for sharing. Bottle, pours a toffee brown body with light brown head. Aroma of malts, sugar, and a hint of smoked sausage. Burnt malt flavor with a slight bit of alcohol. Smooth mouthfeel with a body that seems a bit light for the style.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - APR 27, 2008
Thanks to akevitt. Grainy malt aroma with very light chocolate malts. Milk chocolate body with a grainy bite. Interesting.

JK (4614) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 27, 2008
Mild aroma of malt. Dark brown and a sizeable head. Not very true to style, but good anyway. Malt flavor, a little sweet, lightly roasted. Very good palate, rich and heavy.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2007
Bottle@Home. Light skunky hop aroma, sugary as well, some burnt sugar even. Dark brown color, beige head, good lace. Sweet, bitter, dark malts, light sugary, roasted, light nutty. Sugary mouthfeel. Baltic Porter??? No way! This tastes more like a macro brewed Dunkel. Still many thanks Yngwie!

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - APR 13, 2007
Dark red brown, creamy head. Coffee, dark chocolate, liqourice, roasted, some hop bitterness. Next to Ringnes´ Julebokk, this is the best «dead» Norwegian xmas beer.
