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.

SaintMatty (5779) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2008
500ml Bottle- Dark brown with red tinges and a tan head. Fruity and slightly metallic aroma with a very slight hoppiness. Chocolatey, fruity and hoppy taste which is quite nicely balanced and its taste belies its strength.

Moderated sweet flavour with good counter bitterness. Spicy light bitter lingering finish.

toukopouko (31) - Salo, FINLAND - JAN 16, 2008
Pours a deep red/brown color, with a tan head. A fresh, fruity and spicy aroma with notes of coffee, chocolate and their secret ingredient (heh-heh). Quite crispy mouthfeel, with a long lasting, roasted stout-like aftertaste of chocolate and licorice. Although not the best, Nissemor is still a great brew for those cold winter days, when sitting on the sofa with a blanket wrapped around you.

ako (166) - Turku, FINLAND - JAN 5, 2008
Dark, huge tan head. Fruity and malty aroma... Flavor has roasted malt, hints of chocolate. Not as overly burnt as some have said. I quite enjoyed this as a winter warmer.

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - DEC 29, 2007
0.5 l bottle. Dark reddish brown color with thick but diminishing tan head. Thick aroma of caramel, chocolate, dark fuits, port wine and berries. Chocolatey, nutty, caramelly and berryish flavor. Chocolate and some woody spices (licorice?) in the finish. Sharp repulsive carbonation. Fairly complex beer but there is something dull and unpleasant in the taste.
