COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

omhper (19950) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2007
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.

thebeertourist (4901) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 3, 2007
Bottle. Deep red copper with quite a big tan head. Caramel fruit aroma with berries in the lead. Quite fruity flavours as well, on the sweet side with lingering caramel and nuts, making for a drier finish. Still quite agreeable.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 16, 2006
Clear dark brown color with a red tinge. Medium beige head. Initial aroma is fresh, fruity, followed by malt, red berreis and dark fruits. Dry to light sweet malt flavors. A bit thin mouthfeel. Slight sweet/sour finish. Decent but boring.

tykjen (182) - Florø, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2006
Ruby red color and good foam Malty nose with metallic undertones. Sveet malty taste, but nontheless thin finish. Also metallic notes in the aftertaste. Quite average juleøl

Gr0ve (2156) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 7, 2006
330 ml bottle. Red brown colour. Crystal clear. Average off-white, and creamy, but with quite a bit of larger bubbles. Light notes of münchenermalt. Pretty standard boring aroma. Gentle malts with a powdery texture. Soft mouthfeel, possibly because most of the carbonation was purged out when pouring.

Rune (8484) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 8, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2006 On tap at Mack’s Ølhallen in Tromsø. Clear deep brown colour. Some beige foam. Malty nose. Sweet malty and caramel flavours. Satisfying aftertaste. Still as good as before xmas.
Rerated: 500ml at tap on Ølhallen. The 2006 etition has got a nice mahogany coloured body with a low-level, but lasting, off-white head. Medium aroma of burnt malt with hints of dark fruits. Well balanced flavour of dark, roasted caramel and some notes of grain. Warming alcohol remains in the background towards the ending. Moderate palate and a bit crispated. Same score as vintage 2005 (31.10.2006).
