Halvors Jul er et overgjæret, mørkt og godt humlet øl, krydret med karve og ettermodnet på 500 liters akevittfat. Rester av akevitt, og eikearoma i stavene gir et svært smaksrikt øl. Passer spesielt godt mot slutten av julemåltidet til søte kaker og sjokolade.

Beer4000 (4823) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 10, 2015
500 ml bottle @ Haandverkerstuene May 2014. Slightly unclear dark amber body with a thin, dense coffee latte looking head. Aroma has malt, some bread, spices, hint of wood and a pleasant touch of aquavit. Flavor is more than less what to expect from aroma, some pleasant bitterness and warming aquavit. Fine balanced body and a bit alcoholic in aftertaste. Nice one, the sweet aquavit flavor seems to becoming more dominating when drinking a bit of this. Enjoable.
