Bryggingen av juleøl er ekstra viktig for et bryggeri. Enhver bryggerimester med respekt for seg selv forsøker alltid å forbedre smaken fra året før. Mack Juleøl Sterkøl har en rødlig og dyp farge, og har et meget godt skum. Smaken er søtlig, med en hentydning av krydder. Mack Juleøl Sterkøl skal serveres med en god og fyldig skumtopp, og er ypperlig til julematen.

330 ml bottle. This is too much of the dried fruites, but the body and level of bitterness is close to perfect.

On tap in Olhallen, Tromso. Clear dark red - brown beer. Small cream coloured head. Smooth palate with fine carbonation. Creamy malt. Dark toffee. A little molasses - marmite. A whisper of spiciness. Lacto. Good tart fruits bringing up the rear. Figs, prunes and berry fruits. Semi dry finish. Another decent Mack beer.

In bottle at Craig’s. Pours a brown colour with a lacy beige head. A spicy aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel and treacle. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel.

Bottle at home. Redbrown golden beer. Light beige and frothy head which fades fast. Sweet aromas of milk chocolate and sugar candy, hints of leather. The flavour is surprising with a lot more spices and pepper. In the flavour than expected. I also find salty tones of soy sauce. Hints of leather, milk chocolate and some metal. Mouthfeel is watery and some oily. Overall a spicy and nice christmas beer.

tfredvik (1463) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2011
Another medium brown christmas beer with short-lived, light-brown head. Caramel, rye bread, dark fruits and prunes in the aroma. Also a sweaty component that doesn’t ring my bell. Medium sweet taste, light to medium bitterness and also a light sour thing. Dark caramel, or is that molasses, in the flavours, along with fruits as dark as fruits can be (I think I get prunes, but it might as well be dates as well. Really dark ones.). Ok beer, but the fruits need to be lightened up a bit.
[33 cl bottle, from Vinmonopolet Alna, Oslo]

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2011
0.33l bottle. This one pours a deep deep ruby-brown body with a quickly fading and heavy sidesticking beige head. The aroma is not to bad, it has some light burned caramel notes, banana both sweetness and fruitiness, thin chocolate paper, cardboard hints and it also has a flower-water touch over it. Not horrible at all. Average to lively carbonation level and it has quite a nice oily to light sticky mouthfeel. Flavors even better than the aroma with lots of sweet caramel, tones of dates and raisins also and it’s quite malty but still well balanced with bitterhops before it ends quite mouthdrying. I’m sold on this one. Did not expect it to taste this good.
