On tap at the Oslo Mikrobryggeri. Dark brown with a red hue. Head is small. Delicious sweet chocolate and caramel aroma. Flavour is sweet with lots of chocolate and fruitiness. There is good balancing bitterness so the beer remains very refreshing. Medium body, quite fizzy.

On tap @ the brewpub. A foggy dark red beer with a thin grey head leaving laces. Served too chilled, but a pleasant smell of toffee, berries and grassy hops appears when the beer is warming up. Taste is a nice balance of fine malt-sweetness, a good amount of bittering hops, and some inviting tones of plums and cranberries. Healthy body. Lively mouthfeel. Light bitter and light fruity-acidic finish. A well made and tasty Christmas ale.

20.11.2008. 0,5l on tap at "Oslo Mikrobryggeri" which is a prewpub. I think this must be the 2008 edition. The colour is reddish-brown. Aroma is rich with fruitines. Very nice and well balanced beer.

Well balanced. Both malty sweetness and a nice hoppy finish - pine and flowers. A nice variety of the Norwegian Christmas beer style.

Tap. Red-brown looking beer with a very tine head. Aroma is dominated by the fruity pineaplle-like hops you find in all their beers. Refreshing taste of the fruity hops, some bitterness and distant malts. Fine carbonation and smooth feel in the mouth.

On tap at the brewpub. It’s served slightly hazy and copper-colored. Probably chill-haze, as it seems clear when I finish it. A small off-white head leaves lacings. Fruity in a quite Belgian way, with dried fruits, caramel and more hops than I normally expect from OMB. Caramel, dried fruits, some fresh ones too, a touch of anise and other spices and a fine bitterness. Is it the yeast that gives the spicy flavors? Medium body, creamy and nicely carbonated. Maybe a bit too carbonated, not sure. The finish continues what is found initially, with spices, fruits and a good bitterness. A really pleasant Christmas beer. Almost Belgian-like in a way, bitter, effervescent, slightly spiced and moreish. (081114)

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2012 On tap at brewery pub 09 des 2011. Amber colour with a small off white head. Fruity and hoppy aroma. A solid malt background with a fresh hoppy flavour. Very fresh and good tasting beer, but not as dark as I would have expected from a christmas brew, I could drink this the whole year around :-)

2007 edition, pint on tap at the brew pub. Perfect served at ambient temperature. Partly unclear, mahogany body under a fragile, filmy off-white layer. Plain dark malty aroma. Plenty of dark malts in flavour. Moderate sweetness. The aroma is very well interwoven with the taste in this one. Moderate to full palate. Well made xmas brew (enjoyed in a friendly atmosphere on a Tuesday evening 13.11.2007)
