One-year-old beer today. It tastes... mediocre. A bit liquorice-ish. Too sweet. And it tastes... old.
Do not store this beer!

Amber-brown about clear body, hoohoo beige-fawn head, poor lacing.
Aroma; berries, caramel malts, dusty hops.
Taste; medium dark caramel malts, dark fruits, plum peel, prune, anise, faint ginger. Finishes slightly dry, sweet.
Feels alright, good body, fine carbonation. Overall fine sweet sipper, to the fruit plate, the nuts or confectionery, maybe even cheese.

Bottle from YNWA Beershop, Kolding. 8. December. Pours clear brownish red with a small, creamy beige head that settles as a thin film. Aroma has sweet malts, cherries, plums cake, ginger cardamom, pepper. Medium carbonation, light creamy and fairly dry mouthfeel. Flavour has sweet caramel malts, a bit of chocolate, soft anise, ginger warmth. A tad dusty in the background. Solid if unspectacular.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy dark red with a white colored head. Aroma is of plums, raisins and spices. Especially cloves. I get the belgian aroma on this beer immediately. Mouthfeel is rich and sweet if maybe a tad too carbonated for my taste. I get loads of raisin, plum, candisugar and caramel. I didn’t really like this beer as much as i’d hope to. Maybe it’s the carbonation, maybe it’s because it’s a tad too sweet.

Fine X-mas dark amber ale from Norway. The foam disappears quite fast and left is a very rich aroma of spice (ginger and anise. The taste is full and slightly complex with notes of good notes of plum, raisin and anise. A very enjoyable X-mas beer
