IPAgutten79 (466) - Skui, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2013 Mørk i glasset, med espressofarget skum. Lukter som en Stout skal, vi har kaffe, lakris og mild sjokolade i lukten. Mye av det samme finner vi i smaken, samt noe krydder også. God.

berlinoise2go (604) - NORWAY - DEC 6, 2013
Bottle (50cl) from Vinmonopolet, Oslo. Inch-thick beige head, good retention, leaves a thick band of lacing. Black colour. Aroma of roasted malt, cola, licorice, soy sauce, cream, tobacco leaf. Medium/full body, soft carbonation. Sweet malty taste upfront, giving way to a pleasant, growing bitterness with raw licorice and wood. Balance is further enhanced by a soy sauce saltiness. Aftertaste is dry, mildly spicy with associations to tobacco.

SamTheBarrel (380) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2013
500ml bottle, pours brownish-black with a small tan head with good retention. Aroma and taste of roasted malt, rye bread, coffee beans, caramel, dark chocolate and a hint of licorice. Medium bitterness and light sweetness. Light-medium body, thin somewhat creamy texture and moderate carbonation. A good Stout but for a "Jule Stout" it lacks the strength and spices you would associate with Christmas. Also the label on the bottle looks rather tacky.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2013 Flaska från systembolaget. Tjock mörk färg. Kryddig doft med mörk choklad och kaffe. Maltig smak med inslag av kaffe och anis. Rejäl beska

Holmen1 (2302) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 17, 2013
Fra flaske, DSJT på Cardinal nov-13: som Jule Ale - den vanlige juleølaroma og -smak: litt (karamell)malt og noe krydder. Men alt er litt mørkere og skarpere, noe som gjjør den mer interessant. Begge disse må prøves igjen.
