20-NOV-2010, tap @Ekstra Bladets Juleølssmagning. Brown, beige head. Roasted with a lot of coffee. Quite spicey, dry and long roasted taste. Fantastic X-mas brew. This is how I like them. No need to make them all sweet.

Rune (8180) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 17, 2010
500ml bottle, 7.5% ABV, thanks to Skinnyviking. Oily pour revealing a completely dark body under a dense, two finger, beige-brown head. Dark roasted malts to the nose. Flavoured with roasted malts and Christmas spices like cinnamon. A nice malt-accented Yuletide brew (hotel room, Copenhagen 06.11.2010).

ClubGonzo (4108) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 14, 2010
Tap @ Ølbaren, Copenhagen. This one just looks gorgeous: big beige head, deep brown body. Aroma is roasted malts, dark chocolate with hints of spices and peat. Taste follows suit, with some smokey tones and spices countered by a fruity layer of almost aerial, fluffy hops. Palate is full-bodied. This is a solid Christmas brew, just the way I like ’em - dry and balanced, yet spicy. Very nice.

Bottle. Black pour, small brown head. Aroma has lots of cofee, roast and chocolate along with sugar and dark fruits. The coffee and chocolate are particularily prominent and entirely enjoyable. Taste is alike with lots of coffee and chocolate. Also some lovely spices and a nice sweetness to balance the bitter coffee.

Bottle, 7.5%. Good roasted and slightly fruity aroma. Very dark brown colour, seems clear, red shine. Big unstable brown head. The flavour is roasted and slightly sweet. There is some vanilla and spicy, vinous notes, almost tastes barrelled.
Earlier Rating: 11/20/2009 Total Score: 4.1
Draught at EsBF09. Good cinnamon aroma, along with a mild and creamy roasted note. Black colour, seems a little cloudy. The flavour starts off with a distinct cinnamon note. Turns a bit creamy and quite roasted. Hard roasted malts. Has a subtle vanilla note which is very good in combination with the cinnamon.
