MiP (14446) - Sønderborg, - JUN 29, 2013
Bottle, 7%. Spicy aroma, a little dusty. Clear brown colour. Fizzy unstable light brown head. The flavour is papery, bready and biscuity. Sweetish with some brown sugar. Not a great combo IMO. Thin and watery flavour. Good warming alcohol finish, though.

DraftDodger (460) - - FEB 20, 2015
Copenhagen 2/11 2014. 75 cl bottle from Netto. Pours dark opaque brown with light brown head which quickly subsides. Aroma is of Christmas spices like cinnamon and overipe fruit. Sweet stuff and alcohol. Medium carbonation. Taste is a little sour citrus and sweetness from the overripe fruit. Clear notes of alcohol. A little unbalanced to the sweet side.

NosirIwont (2140) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle. 7.0%. Best before 30.09.15. Pours a cloudy dark amber with a beige/tan head. Good lacing. Sweet aroma, with malt, fruit, plums, spices, hint of honey. Flavour is sweet, malty and (dark) fruity with a light honey note. Dryish finish, sweet with dark fruit and a hint of pepper - and a subsequent light peppery burn. Hint of almonds as it warms. Overall okay, but feels a bit unbalanced. 21.12.14.

Oelbas (237) - DENMARK - DEC 2, 2014
Uklar mørk rødlig brun med middelholdbar lille skumtop. Duften er kraftig, krydret i retning af traditionel krydderkage. Smagen er fyldig og krydret, domineret af mørke malte med en antydning af peber, der bliver kraftigere i eftersmagen og giver en let brændende fornemmelse. Kun let bitterhed, der bliver overdøvet af det søde og peber. En lidt speciel øl, der vinder i længden

Niller (932) - Hammel, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle from Netto. Pours hazy amber with a beige head. Sweet malty aroma. Taste is roasted malts, spice, cloves, caramel, some fruits, honey, hops. Soft carbonation. Bittersweet finish. Nice Christmas beer.

PapaVillum (656) - Valby, DENMARK - NOV 6, 2014
75 cl, flaske, 7,0 % ABV, årgang 2014, købt i Netto i Valby, 6. november 2014. Kastanje-brun og ufiltreret fynsk julebryg med mindre offwhite-farvet skumtop på små 2 cm tykkelse. Fint tætboblet skum. Aroma af kandis og tørret frugt. Karamelmalt, gær, nelliker og peber. Noter af banan. Humlenuancer af urter. Udmærket smag á la belgisk ale med krydderier, omend et letter udvandet indtryk tilsidst. Let syrlig i starten, let til middel sødme hånd i hånd med en middel bitterhed, og middel bitter med et godt strejf af peber i eftersmagen. Fin karboneret på medium niveau, og en god cremet til klistret konsistens. God mellem-fyldig krop og en eftersmag, der er medium lang og medium bitter. Når der står Nyborg på én af Ørbæks øl, er det mit indtryk, at niveauet er lidt højere end deres almindelige program. Denne er ingen undtagelse, og indtil nu er det julen 2014's bedste juleøl. Desuden må man konstatere, at det er Value For Money i Netto.

Plovmand (6984) - Helsinge, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a creamy beige head. The aroma is nuts, sweet malts, spices and toasted caramel. The flavor is licorice, nuts, herbs and spices like cinnamon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Defreni (2841) - Husum, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2013
Flaske: Ravfarvet klar øl med et fint skumhoved. Duft af malt og julekrydderier. Bestemt ikke ubehagelig. Fin smag igen af sødme og jul. Godt bid bakker smagen op og gør at den ikke bliver for meget.

LasseVPedersen (301) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle, 75cl. Pours amber/rubin color with little beige and thin head. Aroma is quite complex and reminds of traditional danish Christmas. Aroma of sweet roasted malt, caramel, dried fruits, coriander, black pepper, herbs and hops. Flavor is caramel, sweetish brown sugar dominated with a little spiciness at the end. Medium body, average carbonation. Warming mouth-feel.
