Flaske fra polet, hjemme mens jeg skriver julebrev: rødbrun med stoboblet gardinskum. Stemningsskapende aroma - anis, koriander og maltsødme. Etter noen munnfuller flyter brevskrivingen kreativt av gårde. Ikke et stjerneøl, men et riktig godt adventsbrygg som varmer i magen.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2014 brew in bottle from local supermarket. Pours hazy dark brown with a nice persisting creamy beige head and some lacing. The aroma is very strong, nearly overwhelming. It is malty with loads of caramel, yeast, dried fruits (raisins), artificial sweeteners, alcohol, spices (anise?). The taste is very sweet; some hops have been used, but not enough to balance the sweetness. Almost cloying. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, full bodied. A strong, bold Christmas beer.
