Gurthnar (2926) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 18, 2015
Bottle from Bottle Park. Aroma rich malty, dried fruits, toffee, chocolate, caramel. Almost clear reddish amber colour. Moderately stable head. Taste goes in the same direction. Complex maltiness with suprisingly thick body. The low alcohol is not manifesting and makes it a worthy Christmas session beer.

mike_77 (3883) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - MAR 27, 2015
Dark brown colour. Aroma is a bit strange. Almost a savoury, meaty background smell. The taste is more conventional with dark malts and a bitter treacley flavour.

the aroma is caramel and fruity with hints of chocolate, licorice and toffe... the taste is caramel and spicy with notes of dark fruits, chocolate, raisin and, a little bit, of toast... sweet and dry aftertaste...

bbertels (207) - NORWAY - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle. Caramel and bread -- even some cinnamon -- for aroma. Dark, dark red and some haziness due to the yeast (as well as my impatience...). Medium bitter-sweet, hints of umami. Medium-bodied with a somewhat creamy texture. Very nice for a low-alco xmas beer!

asimeow (200) - Sandsli, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2014
0,5l bottle, 2014. Black with tall caramel head. Stout style. Licorice and soot aroma. Heavy smoke flavour with licorice. Dark stout. Lacks seasonal spice to do as an xmas brew,but it’s not bad.

aleksander9 (743) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 24, 2014
Hazy brown with nice tan head. Aroma is coffee, caramel and some figs. Thin palate. Aftertaste is dry, floral and a little nutty. Overall: Nice aroma and appearance.

smmaaren (308) - NORWAY - DEC 19, 2014
50 cl bottle from Rimi supermarket. Pours hazy copper with a beige head. Aromas of chocolate, fruits and roasted coffee. Light bitter taste. Good beer. Not the typical Norwegian Christmas-style beer.

Beertobealive (341) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 13, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2014 pours a beige head with light malted cereals aroma. dark ruby coloured body. taste of over-roasted barley, and much else. quite light and short. disappointing for this brewer. may be an issue with this batch.
