COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Midvinternattens köld är hård – då krävs en riktigt mustig och generös ale för att tina upp kropp och själ. Våra förfäder firade midvinterblot för att besvärja solen att komma tillbaka, och till det bryggde man sitt finaste öl – för det som var gott för mänskan var också gott för gudarna! Nu lyser vår vän Rudolf ikapp med norrskenet och värmen sprider sig medan aleglasen gnistra och glimma…

Rudolf 2008- doftar frukt och karamell, har mjuk fruktig choklad i smaken och avslutar torrt med ett visst humlebett.

Beer4000 (4607) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 3, 2013
Bottle sampled in 2009. Dark brown almost black body with a rather small beige head. Very nice aroma of dark, roasted malt, chocolate, prunes and some light citric fruit. Flavor is sweet and roasted malt, dark chocolate, dry fruit and citric fruit with a good bitterness. Full body and a long and pleasant aftertaste of sweet roasted malt and fruity bitterness. Harmony and balance.

matador (6) - göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2008 does not count
Bottle and draught. As always with Dugges, pleasant aroma and lots of hops. Lots of coffee and chocolate in the aroma. Still some hint of chinook or something in the background. This one and some really good vanilla ice cream!

Travlr (13253) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 16, 2013
So, I’m not sure if this is a re-brew of a retired beer, in which case it should be aliased, or an annual release. I bought it from State Line in Elkton, MD on January 12, 2013. No markings of "Perfect Rudolf" on it, and no year either. Anyway, bottle. Almost black color, light brown head, solid lacing. Aroma of milk chocolate, dark roast coffee. Taste is rich burnt caffe macchiaato. Good stuff.

PMgep (80) - Lund, SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2008
(Bottle at Beermakers dinner) Very faint aroma of fruit and coffe. The taste is hard to define, but according to Mikael Dugge, "it’s not banana". Quite dry.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2009
Aroma: nice dark malts, chocolate, citrus, mango, freshly roasted coffee (very nice), the hops definitely make it so much better… Slightly off note in the background of well used idrottssalsgolv
Flavour: initally pretty bitter, fleshy, big maltiness. Some sourishness, sweetness and more bitterness comes booming. Very full-bodied. The flavour is in the realms of imperial stout, with more citrus and cocoa bitterness and less roast. This is awesome. The aftertaste if of sour cocoa. Really suprisingly cocoa-like. The hops add som e freshness which I believe lifts this up from a bitter cocoa-mess. Don’t get me wrong though, the bitterness is far from unbearable, it is just not balanced up very much sweetness, making it a beer that makes you thirsty.
Appearance: Dark earth brown, clear body. Yellowish-greyish fine head. Not creamy, but not bubbly.
Palate: Slimy as if cocoa were used. Fluffy, thick, elegant. Carbonation is rather weak (natural) – good.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2008
A Mes rate. Bottle thanks to the ever generous Fiulijn. I generally really enjoy Dugges beers and this is no exception. Impenetrable mahogany black colour with a decent tan head. Full on burnt aroma with loads of malt, maybe a little plastic and some fairly strong coffee. Really good dark fruitiness. Similar flavour with some extra chocolate thrown in for good measure. Lovely sour hint to it. Dark and malty, slightly dry with a delicate bitter and tarty hint in the finish. Interesting and enjoyable. Cheers Alex.

Svesse (6296) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2008
(Bottle) Very dark brown with ruby hints. Brief, foamy, pale brown head. Fruity, roasted nose with dark fruit, chocolate and cherries in brandy. Fruity, malty taste with notes of chocolate, dark fruit, sweet black coffee and a hint of burnt sugar. Slightly vinous and rather sweet. Nice beer leaning in the porter direction.

Gr0ve (2156) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2009
500 ml bottle. Black with ruby red hues. Rich roasted aroma with hints of vanilla. Slightly burnt, but nicely balanced. Rounded malty flavours with a strong roasted character. Smooth texture. Rounded and wonderfully balanced. Strong coffee flavours in the finish.

yngwie (14130) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2009
Bottle, thx to OleR. A clear, ruby beer with a lasting, finger-thick beige head. Roasted nose with chocolate, raisins and hops giving citrus scents. Orange mostly. Roasted, chocolatey flavor too, with notes of dried fruits, dark sugars, citrusy hops and a little bitterness. Full-bodied and sweet. Roasted finish with citrus and a nice bitterness. A quite lovely beer, maybe not the most Christmasy beer I’ve had, but lovely anyway. Nice with some cheese. (090501)
