COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
1716 Juleøl fra Hønefoss Brygghus er et mørkt øl, håndbrygget med hvetemalt og mynchenermalt. Dette gir en fylde som passer til julens mattradisjoner. Hønefoss Brygghus i samarbeid med Haandbryggeriet, lager levende øl. Brygget er ikke varmebehandlet eller filtrert. Ølet ettergjærer på flaske for å skape naturlig kullsyre og smak. Vi mener dette er nøkkelen til et godt øl. 1716 Juleøl fra Hønefoss Brygghus inneholder ingen kunstige tilsetningsstoffer - kun rent vann, gjær, malt og humle.

Beer4000 (4476) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 3, 2013
Bottle sampled in 2009. Dark brown almost black body with a small beige head. Aroma has dark malt, chocolate and mocha. Flavor is Light roasted, dark malt, caramel, balanced bitterness and some fruitiness. Fine body and pleasant in aftertaste. This is nice and quite impressive at only 4,5 ABV. It’s a shame no other beers from Hønefoss seems to keep up with quality beers.

zeke626 (424) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 31, 2010
Bottle, thanks to akevitt for sharing. Pours a red-brown body with a very generous brown foam head. Aroma of sweet malts, bread, light yeast sourness, and some spice. Flavor is a tad bland - it is mainly just sweet/caramel malts with a light cocoa or coffee flavor. Thin body with a pitted fruit aftertaste. It is possible our bottle sat a little too long.

Clear burgundy with a medium beige head. Sweet aroma with hard roasted malt, dark chocolate and coffee notes. Sweet flavour with burned malt, chocolate, coffee and hoppy notes. Finished dry. Lovely, this if defintely my new session favourite. I want more.

Ungstrup (29332) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2009
Bottled. A dark chestnut colored beer with a dark brown head. The aroma has strong notes of alcohol, soy sauce, and caramel, as well as notes of malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, dextrose, soy sauce, and chocolate, leading to a very dry dextrose finish. What happens to the flavor. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of yngwie. Pours black with a reddish hue and a beige head. Hard roasted malts in the nose with a whiff of vanilla. Body is a little thin, hard roasted malts, tropical fruits and again vanilla. A little malt bitterness in the finish. A pleasant little Stout. 091109

Gr0ve (2134) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2009
330 ml bottle. Very dark brown, almost black. Clear. Medium-sized beige head. Neutral aroma with only a hint of roasted malts. Aroma indicates that it is a lager. Bottle-conditioned as there is a layer of yeast on the bottom. Crisp carbonation. Dry roasted flavours. Earthy. Some caramel. A dry stout with a little residual sugar left, but not much. Quite decent, and likely the best Norwegian dry stout, but nothing to go out of your way to get hold of. Thanks yngwie.

larsga (6213) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 18, 2009
Medium darkish brown head. Nearly opaque black, but just barely translucent dark red, body. Fruity roasty resiny aroma with pine needle notes. Dry roasty chocolate taste with earthy notes. Mid-bodied. Soft, mild mouthfeel. Dry burnt peppery earthy aftertaste. Both aroma and taste have a strong barnyard and old cheese component to them that together really destroys the beer for me. Spice can vaguely be made out in the background. I see nobody else mentioning this, so I guess I was just out of luck with my bottle. Points are a compromise. Need to rerate if possible. (0.33l bottle, thanks to yngwie.)
