COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is our new X-mas beer for the coming season. Milder and less powerful roasty taste than Nissefar. More maltiness from the crystal malts and more fruity taste from lots of aroma hops, incl a hard to describe taste from our secret ingredient.

IPAgutten79 (459) - Skui, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2013
Juleøltest: Kveldens særeste, rødbrun i fargen med lite skum. Aromaen er frisk og god med innslag av tørket frukt og noe humle. Spesiell smak. Bitter, men samtidig søt. Ikke full klaff her! Medium konsistens.

Veldig god ale. Men ikke typisk juleølsmak for min del. Flott mørk farge mye maltsmak . Anbefales. Testet den med sjokolade med 70 % kakao. Helt fantastisk

Som vanlig fra Haandbryggeriet på grensen til overkarbonert. Den lukter av brent malt, julekrydderier og et ganske sterkt gjærpreg. Smaken er preget av maltsødme og en metallisk smak som går over i brentmalt og overraskende mye humlebitterhet. Gjærpreget fra aromaen er nesten ikke tilstede i smaken. På flasken har Haandbryggeriet beskrevet den som maltet og aromahumlet med en ubeskrivelig smak fra en "hemmelig ingrediens". Denne ubeskrivelige smaken slår for min del ut som en kraftig metallisk smak som ikke helt passer inn med den ellers runde maltsødmen. En helt ok juleøl.

Pours brown with a large beige head. Aroma is roasted caramel, heavy coriander, herbal notes and light anise. Flavour is roasted caramel, coriander, anise, clove and herbal notes.
