Danish: Juleøllet har sin sikre plads blandt de danske juletraditioner. Juleøllet har alle dage været kraftigere øl end hverdagsøllet - Hornbeer Juleøl er ingen undtagelse. Den holder lige knapt sine 8 pct alkohol. Vi har i år valgt at brygge vores juleøl lidt utraditionelt. Der er anvendt gær fra belgisk trappistøl og så har tilladt os at bruge mere humle end munkene på klostret. Vi mener, at humlen er med til at gøre vores juleøl rigtigt velegnet til den danske julemad. Vi har tilsat en knivspids røgmalt. Og så har vi anvendt krydderier i små mængder.

Lilja (2033) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2013
Lagrad ett år. Smak och doft av torkad frukt, belgisk jäst, en aning rök, humle och malt. Ett gott julöl.

Rune (9067) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2011
500ml bottle, 7.5% ABV, bought at a reduced price at Ølbutikken, Cph in May 2010. Properly stored and matured in my cellar. Nice bottle design, as always, of reindeer and Santa. Deep, mahogany coloured body topped by a fawn-coloured head. Lacking lacework. Malt-fruity aroma with emphasis on the fruity part. Dried and ripe fruits in flavour with caramel malts beneath, lightly spiced. Citrus hoppy ending. Soft in the mouth. Well balanced, warming and refreshing (Tromsø, 27.12.2011).

POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2011
Hazy dark amber color with medium size head. Strong ale, hmm it says there is used a pinch of smoked malt, I will say a snow shovel smoke malt.

Vignale (2414) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 14, 2010
Provad vid 2010 års julölsprovning. Ett år gammal känns humle lite blek, röken ytterst lätt, men den belgiska jästen har fått mogna ut och göra det till en lite udda belgostils trippel. Trevligt.

TBone (13703) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 11, 2010
Bottled (BB 09/2014)
Dark brown color, small steady beige head. Aroma has strong anise, licorice and caramel. Medium-bodied. Strong anise also in the flavor but strong boiled green beans as well! Sweetish overriped banana too. Otherwise this would be like Aventinus but those vegetables are a bit too dominating.
