COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This limited-edition winter brew will make its debut in October, but this winter celebration ale is worth the wait. Malted barley and chocolate tones define the traditional style, while the robust aroma and long, mellow finish will make this the perfect companion for your holiday adventures.

Bottle from 73, Reykvavik. Ruby with a quickly fading rim of cream froth leaving it looking rather flat. Very light malt aroma. The tast is toffee, light spice with a little stewed fruit. Decent.

Bottle. Pours clear (like all of my beers from Iceland), brown/dark amber in colour, thin head. Aroma of caramel, malt, some chocolate maybe. In taste medium sweet, malty with toffee, fruits and some chocolate. Medium to full body, soft carbonation, quite smooth. Nice.

corkyrory66 (1320) - BELGIUM - FEB 28, 2016
Doppelbock, de la nuit hivernale islandaise. Niveau abv de 6,7 %, pour 16,3° plato … ça ne va pas casser la glace !!! Quatre malts au programme : Munich, pils, crystal, choco. Mon exemplaire avait 5 mois de bouteille. Couleur roux auburn, à la clarté nette. Bulles moyennes en colonnes droites, pas très nombreuses mais vives. Mousse qui n’est qu’un simple nappage de surface. Arômes de caramel, lichen, cake, candi, thé de Ceylan. 1ère bouche souple, sur du malt plutôt bien grillé, houblon sec. Arrière-bouche sur du malt cara. 2ème bouche sans prégnance, malt grillé mais très léger. Arrière-bouche aqueuse. 3ème avec des petites touches d’épices plus intéressantes. Arrière-bouche un rien plus pleine. Longueur plus agréable, avec quelques notes originales, mais peu de consistance. Jambes fines, mais courtes. Levure un peu poivrée, ligne correcte. Alcool faible, il ne fait que souligner certaines nuances, sans rien diriger. Finale anodine, aqueuse. CONCLUSION : pas besoin que le viking se fâche sur l’étiquette, il n’aura pas grand chose pour naviguer ce soir … Des broutilles pour rennes, tout au plus ...

tnkw01 (1707) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 6, 2016
Bottle. Clear, dark amber with a large quickly shrinking head with a permanent small one and lots of lace. Aroma has hints of caramel and fruit cake. Taste slightly sweet upfront with a complex middle with a burnt sugar and dried fruit and a slightly bitter finish.
