Bottle. [Courtesy of Papsoe, another great tasting session] Average beige rocky head that mostly disappeared. Clear flat looking body with a mahogany color.

Ungstrup (34660) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2007
Bottled. A brown beer with a tan head. The aroma is sweet and very malty with notes of bread and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel and bread, as well as lighter notes of alcohol. A bit one-dimensional.

KnutAlbert (6713) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2007
2006 version.Thanks to larsga for this. Looks very similar to the Berentzen beer, up to and including the batch no, but what the heck. Lovely dark red. Sweet, some cardboard, some perfume. Watery. A bit spicy in the aftertaste. If I wanted to order an own brand beer, I would have made more of it!

larsga (7310) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 7, 2007
Medium beige head. Pretty deep dark red body. Papery, spicy licorice aroma with notes of grain. Dry, roasty taste with chocolate and paper notes and some grain. Aftertaste is dry grain. A bit watery. It’s OK, but not very exciting. (0.33l bottle. Xmas 2006 variety.)

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2007
330 ml bottle. Chestnut colour and clear. Medium-sized off-white head. Nutty and grainy malt aroma. Hints of dark chocolate and red berries. Münchenermalt flavour balanced by a little darker roasted malts. Bitterness from roasted malts and grassy dry hops. Quite rounded flavours, but with a powdery dry texture. Quite nice for a lower alcohol Christmas beer. No best before date on the bottle. (Thanks larsga. Did you forget to rate your own?)

MiP (15304) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2006
Bottle. Slightly malty, appleish aroma. Dark chestnut colour, semi-stable head. Quite malty flavour with OK bitterness. Liquorice aftertaste, and the maltiness disappears. Bitterness turns a little rough, tannins?

yngwie (16523) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 7, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2007 Bottled. Clear, low-carbonated, copper-colored beer with a decent off-white head. Aroma is mostly caramel. Malty, light sweet flavor with roasted notes. Ok mouthfeel for a klasse D (below 4,8% alcohol) juleøl. Finish is light bitter with a roasted twist. (051207)

Sigmund (6745) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 2, 2003
(330 ml bottle). Copper colour, good head. Aroma is caramel and spices. Flavour is malty with some caramel and burnt notes, still a somewhat thin mouthfeel - this style calls for a higher ABV.
