Årsøl er en dobbelt bock øl kobberfarvet, hvor der er anvendt 4 forskellige malte, blåbær for at give smag og farve, igen er der brugt Hallertauer humle.

Bottle at home. very well lagered, but not very well fermented with a - due to high residual sugars - long lasting head. sort of malt and caramel aromas but not well balanced. ordinary trial of a strong beer-type. not rough enough for a dark bock

Bottled. Orange coloured. Unclear. Dense light brown head. Is a bit yeasty and fruity in the aroma. Light spiced. Flavour is sweet and fruity. Has light alcohol and caramel. Yeast notable. Is a bit thin bodied. Don’t leave a lasting impression on the palate.
