2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
30ml bottle. Bought in September so possibly a leftover from the previous year. Dark amber with plenty of head. Musty alcohol and caramel aroma. Mouthfeel is medium verging on thin at times. Syrupy caramel and dark berries with a little heat in the finish. Not very complex or Christmassy in my opinion.

Very nice christmassy nose of cinnamon and spice. Looks great in the glass - dark honey treacle with a lasting creamy head. Taste of christmas pudding with brandy sauce and other good stuff. The alcohol makes itself known just a touch on the finish in a good way. Very nice indeed.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bière brunâtre aux reflets rubis avec un col de mousse moyen et une effervescence modérée. Le nez évoque les fruits mûrs avec un peu de caramel sur les flancs. En bouche, c’est riche, relativement corpulent, sucré et un peu piquant (sans être épicé). Un réel plaisir à boire.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rating #539, bottle from Ølbutikken
A brown-red beer with a nice head. Aroma is peach, strawberries, cherries, yeast, and spicy hops. Rather christmasy. Flavour has christmas in it as well by presenting a basket of strawberries, cinnamon, spices and sweetness, though with some metal too. Medium palate, ok thickness.

Bottle. Pours a hazelnut brown. Flat head. Nose is siruppy, bit of malt, slightly acidic, medicinal. Taste is rather pale, some alcohol, again some sirup and as good as no aftertaste that stays to linger. Quite flat.
