Bottle at home. Pours amber with some a little head. Hints of fruits and toasted malts on the nose. Loads of dried/candied fruits and sweet malts with a lingering aftertaste. Some notes og belgian beer in there. An interesting take on a Norwegian Christmas beer.

Nice aroma on this amber christmas beer. At first I noticed at bitterness that ruined the first impression. After a while in room temperature the caramel/candis and spices became the main aroma. A pleasant aftertaste finished it of. Not an average christmas beer, but I recommend it.

Glowind ruby red. Raiisins, prunes, lots of malt. Vinous, with a little sour edge. Discreet use of Christmassy spices, cinnamon in the finish. Pleasant sipping.

Bottle from my Secret Eurosanta, thanks & cheers to you! Hazy brown with an amber glow, mid-sized off-white head. Aroma of dried fruit. Malty start with a yeasty touch. Herbal hoppy accents and Hints of spices such as clove, cinnamon, star anise. Has a really christmassy feel about it. Good!
