Pours a dark brown with a slight reddish tint. Nose reminded me of a sour ale. Taste of malt, bitter chocolate. Ok - not a huge fan of the style.

Den smager af jul. Meget mørk og med tæt skum. Der er lidt lakrids at spore, malt og ikke den vamle sødme der tit ødelægger julebryg.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Originally rated on 12/5/08. A little disappointed in this one, the aroma and flavors were barely present however there were very, very faint hints and tastes of raisin, and malts but not much else. It looked nice with a very deep brown body, plenty of carbonation and a good head. Mouthfeel was smooth and the alcohol was well hidden. I liked this beer overall but the flavors should have been more assertive for such a highly rated brew. I would like to give it a second chance someday.

Pours chestnut brown from the bottle. Aroma is cherry soda and lightly yeasty. Taste has a dry sweetness, strong fruit notes ( mostly cherry) and a hint of caramel. Body remains on the light side. Decent stuff.

Brązowe piwo o obfitej pianie, która zdobi szkło i redukuje się do warstewki na powierzchni. Aromat ciemnych owoców, głownie rodzynki. W smaku lekko kwaskowe, trochę owocowe, trochę ciemnych słodów. Goryczka średnia. Ogólnie bardzo udany dubel, typowy dla stylu, pijalny.
