3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bought @ Fakta, Haderslev.
Dark chestnut, almost bordering on black. A great, staying, creamy, beige head. Really lovely. Mild aroma, some chocolate, light roasted, some caramel. Just a hint of spices. Medium carbonation, fine creaminess yet a little light mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, light citric at first. Then good caramel, chocolate. Long, lingering roasted dryness with hints of hazel nuts. Actually quite nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. A new beer form a retired brewery, quite a threat ! Dark brown with huge pale brown and creamy head. Aroma roasted malts, cocoa, when it heats up chocolate and oranges. Taste roasted matls, cocoa and a little bitterness.A good beer, but I can´t understand why they don´t keep the recipe for the old christmas beer alive, when the name Brøckhouse seemingly has been sold, and someone else are brewing. But much better than the crap sold from Ølfabrikken nowadays.
Btw. it´s no way a vienna. My guess is a stout.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2009 Bottle from Fakta. I thought that the brewery were closed for good, but now there´s a christmasbrew in shops. The link on the label being the old and original brewery but the label being a new layout. Brown coloured beer with aroma and taste of caramel, chocolate and hops. Fresh, sweet and swedish. Its from Åbro Sweden and have never been close to Hilleroed and the old brøckhouse.
