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.

Dark red color with hints of brown. No head. Sweetness, caramel, brown sugar in aroma, thin alcohol comes up. Medium bodied. Sweetness, mild caramel in flavor, ends with medium alcohol. Nice dry aftertaste with mild hops.

KnutAlbert (6377) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2005
Bottled 2005 version: Quite good, but not really there. Taste of dried fruit, I would say plums. Molasses sweetness which lasts long. Rather fizzy.

oh6gdx (22531) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 9, 2005
Bottled. Dark amber colour, with big beige bubblish head. Aroma of dry fruits, plum and cookies. Christmassy indeed. Flavour is bittersweet plummy, hoppy and weak roast. Palate is quite watery. Also malts noteable. Quite ok, but it lacks something in both flavour and palate...

An uncloudy copper red. Nice coffee coloured head. Smells of rum, warm, strong, honey, and mulled spices. A maltly sweet and bitter tase. Some milkyness.

TBone (14160) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2005 Bottled (BB 10/2005)
Dark ruby with nice creamy tanned head, lace. Malty, a bit sweet aroma. Medium to full bodied. Flavor has chocolate, malts and a bit of roast. Some bitter or even harsh notes can be found in a closer look. Good brew from Mack anyhow. (5/5/5/3/11 2.9)
<Re-rate 2005 version
Dark reddish, quickly vanishing off-white head. Malty ryebreadish aroma. Taste is roasted, malty even a bit chocolaty. Short, slightly sugary finish. Nothing wrong with this, but a bit boring. (6/4/7/3/13 3.3)

Not one of the best in this style. Normally it’s too thin, and has also some water-taste in the middle. The aftertaste is often the best part of it.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - DEC 26, 2004
(on bottle, thanx Sigmund) Powerfull sent og forestberries and alcohol, much more than the Ringness Julebokk(sorry, Sigmund). Clear red/brown color. Hard malted barleys and some toffee flavours, with a burnt sensassion to th palate in he finish. Primitive, but dosen´t want to be more, and I respect that( asin : I don´t respect Ringnes Julebokk, sorry Sigmund)

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 23, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2005 (Bottled) Clear, dark amber color with a medium, quite tight but quickly fading head. Stuffy, bitter-ashy, dark-toffee-malty, a bit metallic aroma with some sweet rye-pudding. Caramely, somewhat roasted-malty flavor with a dryish, ashy finish but fairly low bitterness. ABV is hidden well, but metal isn’t. Medium-bodied, quite thin palate with a high, foamy carbonation. Actually not that bad for a vienna, as it has a reasonable malt content without being cloying sweet. Still, it’s quite thin and extremely carbonated. Not my choice for christmas, for sure.
