lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - MAR 9, 2006
Very deep brown colored beer with a tar like browness and a stabille brown^beige head. Aroma is very hoppish and spiced. It has impressions of caramelized onions, wild flowers, BQQ residue of meat on a grill, faint touch of bitter orange peel and coffee. The taste is rich and medium dry. It has a good ballace between the bitter, the malts, the alcohol and the dry fruityness. This beer is stout build with a citrussy freshness untherneeth. Spices are well integrated and the bitters gives loads of refreshment. Afthertaste is burned bitterish, dry hoppy, slight citrussy and bitter spiced, bitter orangepeel, cloves and nutmegg.

Nutty coloured brown beer, creamy beige brown foam. Nose is nutty, soft malty, spices and caramel along with a fine hoppyness. Taste is soft sweet and complex bitter. beer with a nice spicyness, a good sweet balans and a fine kick of flowery hops. A nice winter warmer. Thanks Lachesis for introducing this nice range of Mikkeller brewery beers.

yespr (33597) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2010
50 cL bottle, huge thanks to Ungstrup! Pours dark brown with a huge chocolate brown head. Dark spiced cardemomme aroma, dark roasted malty nose. Smooth roasted, dark malty and nicely spiced. Bitter, slight acidic and smooth roasted in a nice blend. Bitter and roasted finish with a lovely integrated note of cinnamon, ginger, cardemomme and cloves. Smooth far finish with a light citric note. I wonder if the citric notes are what is left from the orange peel. Spices are really wellintegrated in this wonderful 4 year old brew.

Bottled@The Chriso rock the roof down pre-GBBF tasting. Amber colour, very close to black, with small off-white head. Aroma is spices, liquorice, some fruits, wood and mild alcohol. Flavour is quite much the same, a very mellow and wellaged beer.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2005
Bottled. Dark brown coloured. Very nice aroma of Swedish julmust. Big malty and sweet flavour with loads of glögg spices. The finish is very bitter, partially from the sharp spiciness and partially from the obviously big amount of hops used. It is dry and lingering. Medium bodied. Soft carbonation. Very good.

500ml bottle enjoyed at home a year after I bought it when it was first released at Ølbutikken in Copenhagen. I remember that I was not allowed to buy more than three bottles - of course the Danes can not have Norwegians coming to take away limited editions of some of the best ales in Denmark.
This ale is all about Yuletide. On the bottle neck there can be found a red cap with a white top (full score in appearance!) The pour reveals a clear and deep palisander coloured body complemented by a tiny beige head. Sharp smell of pine needles mixed with anise. Heavy spiciness in flavour with cardamom, ginger, a good amount of liquorice and a touch of cinnamon. Bittersweet end. Medium bodied. Very dry mouthfeel. Classic Yuletide in one bottle (15.12.2006).
