Girlfriend brought this for me from Norway. Nice decent head, nothing special. Drinkable but would not buy this again, especially with Norwegian rates.

Litt lite aroma, men god. Søtlig smak, men ikke for mye. God fylde og generelt god smak. En god juleøl både til mat og kos. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared by my father
Brown, tanned head. Smells of wet dog, caramel and spices. Moderate sweet, some toast and caramel, finished of with a moderate bitter tail with a quite unpleseant kick of metal. Not a good beer

Dried fruits and hint of hops in the aroma. Dark brown to black with a off white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Light to medium body with a average carbonation. Overall a nice, enjoyable brew.

djoeye (1574) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2013
0.5L bottle, abv 4.7%, from a local Rema 1000. Beige head, dark brown body, few lacings. Caramellic scents of caramel malts, some chocolate malts. Tastes some sour-sweet caramel, water, and mixed chocolates. Ends with much the same. Seems unfinished. The brewery had time to serve a story about Lade Gaard from 995 AD, but not time to make an historically good beer....

Wischylini (136) - Grimstad, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2013
Pours clear with the colour of black cherries and a big beige head that lasts for quite some time and leaves a nice lacing too. Aroma on the nose is mostly metallic and stale, like a pilsner, while the aromas on the tongue are more metallic taste and some caramel, and butter in the aftertaste. The taste is not as sweet as other dunkels, and it is in fact a bit tart. The body is much too thin, and leaves much to be desired from a dark beer with a big head; if I was blindfolded and someone told me this was a pilsener, or even worse, a pale lager, I would have believed them. Pairing this with heavy, greasy Christmas food would be a total disaster.
