UPDATED: DEC 25, 2008 50 cL bottle. Pours dark brown with thick brown head. Fantastic christmas aroma of chocolate, fruits, anise, coriander and alcohol - some yeast as well. Taste adds malt notes to the aroma flavours. Finish is long and sweet. Lovely balanced and goes great to almost any food. Fantastic Christmas brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
An unclear dark brown beer with an OK light brown head. The aroma contains notes of oranges, lemon, caramel, and alcohol, while the flavor is very sweet with strong notes of caramel and nuts, but also fruits - I pick up oranges. Nice with the extra power.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(On tap) Less star aniseed and a shipload of extra malt drives the alcohol way up in this new version of Herslevs Christmas offering. Unclear brown with an orangey glow and an off-white head. Sweetish, fruity aroma. Very potent body, sweetish vinous with distinct notes of oranges. Very marked and warming alcohol. Incredibly full-bodied but perhaps a tad too heavily alcoholic. 281005
