1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle from Voldby Købmandsgaard, shared with Desverger (2013 7.2%). Amber colour with no head. Peculiar aroma and taste. Slight aniseed, hint of malt, very watery. Just overall really bad and was a drain pour for both of us. Undrinkable. (Note: saw existing 2013 reviews already here, so added here, not sure if any admin may want to move to a 2013 seperate beer due to abv or not?, may drive 2012 rating down)

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. An unclear, dark amber colored beer topped by a dense, finger-thick beige head. The aroma is on the malty side with toffee, licorice and bread, and there’s also a distinct spiced touch of anise, cardamom and cinnamon. It’s full-bodied, soft and lightly warming on the palate, with sweetness and some bitterness. Toffee, bread and the spices known from the aroma in the flavor, the sweetness and spices lasting for a good while. Some oxidation in the very end. Not bad for a spiced Danish Christmas beer. 150808

Shared bottle at local tasting. Brown colour, moderate to low off-white head. Strong aroma of star anise (which I tend to hate) and other spices, but not godawful. Spicy flavour, star anise again. The mouthfeel is not very full. Not a great beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Flaske på rbhd-treff feb-15: mahognyfarge med offwhite, tett skum. Lett krydret aroma. Ovesen grøsser, her er det for mye stjerneanis. Jeg synes det bare smaker som en middels sterk, middels kjedelig juleøl.
