Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2012
Was waiting to try this one again, tried it in december and remembered that it was very good. Aroma of dried fruit, especially raisins. Caramel, nuts and some chocolate is also in there. Aftertaste is quite sweet with good tones of raisins. This is a really good christmas ale, looking farward to the next batch when christmas is approaching.

bartlebier (1799) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - DEC 12, 2013
33cl bottle, takk Palme! (EU Swap-II). Nice balance between mild raisin/malt roast, none too sweet caramel, nor too heavy; raisin fruitiness, winter spice made palatable by the use of a perfectly attenuated yeast = dry, old ale palate. Almost rolled out the bear skin - very well done!
