Bottle 0.33 l. Nicely dark amber looks, smallish head. Malts, caramel, some syrup. Alcohol sweetness. Not that different from milder version, except for the alcohol sweetness. Not bad, but quite characterless and thinnish for such high alcohol.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Provided by the man behind 90% of my Norwegian ratings, thanks again Yngwie. This pleasant Christmas beer pours a clear, warm, dark amber golden with a small, beige head. Clean and malty nose also with some caramel. Medium body, fruity with flavours of burned caramel - some sweetness yet it ends fairly dry. Quite delicate. 090407

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, thanks Rune! Clear dark ruby, small head. Aroma of roasty malt with some cherries underneath. With it’s restrained sweetness and rather slim mouthfeel it’s more drinkable than most traditional Norwegian christmas beers. Rather fruity with light caranelly malt and a touch of raisins. Low bitterness.
