Der findes to lejre med hensyn til juleøl, nemlig dem er kan lide tilsætningsstoffer i ølle, og dem der ikke kan.
Normalt hører jeg til den første gruppe, men den her er godt nok krydret til den gode side....Muskat hører til i boller og kage, og ikke i øl. Nå, men ellers er den den julet, med god sødme, og let humlet. Skal smages, tror det er en enten eller øl.

Nice dark brown and clear beer with a foam that is thick and persistent. Indeed, I can with a finger make a gap in foam without foam pulls together again! It smells deliciously of nutmeg, hops and malt. It tastes although of all the good that belongs to Christmas and the aftertaste is long. The finish is first a little bitter in a pleasant manner, then in a short time becomes sweet with touches of honey and nutmeg.

Aroma has cinnamon, some ripe fruits and distant floral notes. Flavour is rather strong on cinnamon. Also some ripe fruits, spices and floral notes. Yet another too spicy Christmas beer. Decent.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap. Deep chestnut colored beer with a diminishing brown head. The aroma is sweet, dark fruity and spicy. Taste is sweet malty with quite some caramel and notes of plums, brown sugar, chocolade leading to a mellow finish with a harsh dash of nutmeg, that gets a bit annoying after a few sips. Medium body, soft carbonation.

I taste the 2009 and 2010, side by side. The 2009 has spend most of it’s live in the fridge whereas the 2010 has lived in my "beer cellar".
Clear brown with beige head.
Loads of honey here. Spicey and sweet.
Charamel, honey, and sweetness.
The quite high alcohol level gives the beer a fine body with low carbonation making it very easy drinking.
The 2009 is fresher and cleaner than the 2010 indicating that storage conditions in my "cellar" are somewhat short of perfect. :(
