(on tap @ BrewPub) Pours black with big toffee head. Good retention and lace. Aroma is star anise, roasted malt with hints of coffee. I’ve begun to realise I loathe spices in beer. Oily texture, soft carbonation, full body with a roasted bitter finish. The star anise permeates the smell and taste of this beer and does not play well with the roasted malt to my palate.

Calisky (1017) - ALSACE, FRANCE - NOV 10, 2014
Couleur noire, mousse beige qui disparait. Nez fort chocolat avec caramel, pruneaux, malt, note de café.. Gout de chocolat, malt, caramel, note pruneaux, grillée et café moulu avec bonne amertume grillée café en fiin de bouche. Corps moyen mais intense et rond en bouche. Une superbe porter.

Alengrin (2331) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
Tasted as Jule Porter, a winter porter with thin, deep beige head and near to black colour. Aroma of coffee, toasted bread, chocolate, toffee, vanilla, star aniseed, cinnamon; sweet and rich malt taste, caramel and chocolate, roasted bitterness, thick and oily mouthfeel, subtle spicy accents adding complexity, long bitter finish. More a stout than a porter to me but an excellent brew in any case.

50cl. Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Aroma alcohol, cinnamon, anise, cherry, sweet, coffee, mocca. Taste cherry sugar sweet, coffee bitter. Mouthfeel thin, oily. Nice brew!

Backlog fra Cardinals crazy juleølsmaking. Jeg ticket alle de øllene, men så at de da ikke kom med på Statistikk, så nå blir det sånn ca...

Feels great and looks great, and has some nice characteristics. But a bit short of tastes and aromas, which seems great. Good, and will surely match many different kinds of holiday dishes. Coffee and xmas spices.

guzgorog (312) - FRANCE - JAN 5, 2014
Noire avec des reflets bordeaux, très léger col chocolat au lait. Nez qu’on attendrait plus puissant : chocolat, café, épices. En bouche, amertume moyenne, corps moyen et légérement crémeux, gout de café, épices, anis. Pas mal, mais décevant quant à ce que la brasserie fait d’autre...

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - DEC 17, 2013
Pours a completely dark colour with a good tan head. Loads of mocca in the aroma, as in the flavour. Also some licorice and coffee in there. Long and intriguing aftertaste which just get you want more. Super balance between the different tastes. Full bodied, with avarage carbonation and a soft mouthfeel. One of the best christmasbeers I’ve tried.

Could smell more, but smells good. Christmas spices and anis in the taste. A good beer but could be more taste.

IPAgutten79 (580) - Skui, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Mørk brun i glasset, aroma av lun kaffe og tåfis(!). Smaker som en porter, ristet malt og mild kaffe, samt noe sødme. God munnfølelelse. Ganske god øl.
