mandaritto (161) - LATVIA - JAN 31, 2016
Very enjoyable. Winterish, intensive caramels, raisins. Very sweet and well ballanced. Although a bit too sticky and aroma wasn’t as great as taste, very nice brew!

esp0r (2625) - NORWAY - FEB 27, 2011
Bottle shared with Daje. Deep red, thin white head. Smells of raisins, nuts, ’fusel’ and honey. Taste is sweet and dry. Much malt flavor. Reminds me of danish pastry with macrone fill. Feel is a bit thick and sweetish. Some bitterness in finish. This is an excelent companion when sitting by the fire-

Pinball (11797) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 3, 2011
bottle from ølbutikken clear amber, smooth beige head. very nice hoppy , dry malty and caramelly aroma. slightly spicy. flavor is malty, caramelly,dry.. faint spices, the dryness and the hops play very well together, Very tasty dry malty beer. Hops go a long way towards handling the quite sweet malty flavor. alc. well hidden and matches the beer well.

Bathory (458) - Kverneland, 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 (3195) - Belchium im Biersgau, 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!

330 ml bottle shared 26.Oct.2011 at Rating Session. Cheers Rune! Hazy dark amber body with creamy head. Fermented raisin, figs and plums to the nose. Taste of pickeled fruits, with hint of coffee/toffee and cloves. Great beer for chilly winter evenings!
