"Et godt juleøl brygges etter gamle oppskrifter og kjærlighet til godt øl. Siden 1856 har Dahl’s bryggeri brygget noen av sine beste øl til jul, og årets sterke juleøl vitner om at de gamle oppskriftene lever videre. Juleølet har mye sødme og fruktighet, med en dyp gyllen farge. Ølet har en fin fylde og aroma, og passer utmerket sammen med trønderske juleretter. God jul!

Editor’s note: 6.5% in 2009, different ABV’s other years. ABV is only listed in the name to make it obvious it’s different from the one at around 4.5% ABV.

6.5% clear 330ml bottle. Purchased@Vinmonopolet, 2014-January. Head with some red-brown notes in the beige foam. Brown-red body, clear. Scents mild roasted malts, wood, lingonberries. Tastes chocolate malts, syrup, grains, hops, caramels, hapå, hints of lingonberries. Something that reminds me of small christmas cookies. Nice to palate, alright bodied. Mild ending where chocolate tunes are fading out. Overall seems to be a quality yuletide beer.

NORSAND (36) - - JAN 10, 2014
(Brewed October 2007. Alcohol: 6.3%) Appearance: Dark brown towards red-brown. Light beige head. Nose: Nice smell of caramel, and hops. Taste & palate: Semi creamy texture from the quite rich, small bubbles carbonation. Medium body with a hops / bitterness backbone. The sweetness seems to be partly consumed by ageing and partly equalled out by the hops, leaving an almost dry impression. Medium body. Medium long to long aftertaste. A structured Christmas beer, keeping up quite well after 6 years.
