Rich Malty character, haandbryggeriet is starting to become my definite favourite brewery. This one has a heavy ABV, so watch out. A lot better the it's less ABV companion called nissefar

Batch 490. 12/25/13. Pours deep brown-black with a very active, light-brown head. Aroma is earthy, grass, caramel, leather, toffee, berries; smells very nice. Taste is roasty, dark chocolate, toast, caramel, toffee, wood, char, leather, mild sweetness, licorice; finish is roast malt and bitter dark chocolate. Some nice lacing. Carbonation is delicate but very active. Mouth feel is full, chewy, not coating. A really delightful Christmas beer and another fantastic beer from a fantastic brewery.

DWG; Pours black/dark brown with a lacing creamy, still fading head. Aroma is roasted, smokey malt, dark fruits, coffee, chocolate, with hints of vanilla, spice and liqourise. Taste adds roasted, sweet malty and salty. Medium to full body, creamy texture, medium carbonation. Lasting bitter, sweet chocolate finish. I love Christmas.

Pours a very dark brown with a small, but well retained, tan colored head.
The aroma offers rye bread & cocoa powder, it’s lightly earthy & lightly spicy with some pine.
The flavor is nicely tart, even lightly hoppy but very pleasantly so. It’s got notes of spruce and caraway spiciness. It’s lightly roasty, and satisfying on all levels.
cool label too, geeze.
