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.

Nonshaugen (398) - Fetsund, NORWAY - FEB 3, 2016
33 cl bottle. Clear as a bell, mahogany colour, thin tan head, rich carbonation. Not much aroma, but notes of malts, spices and dark chocolate. Medium to full body, lots of malt, not sweet or bitter, low smooth carbonation. Flavours of caramel, toffee, chocolate and dark fruits. Hops are hiding in the background. Very good beer, but it’s not the sensation I had expected from Einstök.

mansquito (5109) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 10, 2016
The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: pours dark amber with a white head. Aroma is dark fruit, malt. Taste is light and kind of sweet. Low hoppiness. Pretty mellow for a doppelbock. Not bad and pretty easy.

lokis333 (352) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - JAN 10, 2016
Nice clear deep amber or molten wax color with lightly brown strong foam. Aromas of malt, caramel, bot of alcohol? bit of banana and somewhat strong. Palate, medium body with sugary texture that coats your mouth and gives this feel like you licked carboard with glue (not that I have licked glue but I have licekd cardboard) and leaves alcoholic finish. Taste, tastes of alcohol, malt and quite strong, not the most pleasant taste. Overall I was not a big fan of this beer, but this was first of this stile so I might be jsut new to it so not best person to judge this yet, but in a way reminds of high volume beer in Lithuania that people dring to get wasted.
