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 2009 doftar fruktigt och har mjuk och fyllig smak med fruktsötma och en lugn, balanserad och relativt torr efterbeska.

Detta är ingen porter utan snarare något som jag skulle vilja kalla "Dark Ale"

Thanks to tkrjukoff for this bottle. Very nice dark brown/red color, white head. Smells a little weird, like some sort of berries or cherries. Taste also pretty sweet to me. Carbo and body decent. Weird when you expect a porter, although the commercial description already says it’s not really a porter (thanks Timo for translating that to me) but more something like a ’dark ale’.

(500ml bottle) Courtesy of Blomster. Fruity figgy malt and decent alcohol. Good spice base and mild ash. Excellent ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Christian (10778) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2011
Brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of fruit, chocolate, malt and molasses. Sweet malty flavour with toffee and bread character and a touch of spice

ClubGonzo (3509) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2011
Bottle. Deep near-black brown body, small egg shell-hued retention. Nose is dark chocolate, rum pralines, strong boozy notes and hints of licorice. A bit hard on the booze here. Taste is more into the territory of dark malts, nuts, hints of cocoa and coffee. A bit washy mouthfeel, and the flavors seem oddly placed, as if going in too many differing directions at once. This is a very undefined brew that lacks a clear purpose. Is it a Christmas ale? A traditional? Porter? Sweet Belgian? All? Neither? Don’t make no sense to me. Try again Dugges.

MiP (13046) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2011
Bottle, KØ11. Roasted aroma, a little spicy. Some aniseed. Dark brown colour. Mildly roasted flavour with a bit of aniseed. OK balanced, but not perfectly.

Rune (7346) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 12, 2011
Sampled from bottle at the beer festival in Copenhagen ’11. Fawn-coloured patches on the top of a near-black body. Inviting smell of caramel malts. Fin balanced flavour of dark fruits and caramel malts. Dry ending. Very nice, would surely be appreciated in Norway at Christmas time this year (27.05.2011).

kbutler1 (1345) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 3, 2011
Bottle. Poured into a tulip glass a dark brown caramel color with a light tan head that coasters around the glass. Swirling creates a nice coastered head. Rich aroma of caramel, spice, and dark fruit. Medium mouthfeel. Pretty sweet with lots of fruit notes and then POW! it turns a little cough syrup and "flattens" out on ya. Some roast as well. Surprisingly the alcohol shows a little more than I thought it would. I like the start but hate the finish on this one.
