4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 2012 vintage. It pours a clear, deep copper colored body and a dense, finger-thick off-white head. Lacings occur. The aroma is rich, but not as dark as the Julebokk its recipe is based upon. Itís more on the dried fruits side than the roasted, burnt caramel side. Also, thereís quite a lot of heather honey going on, and a touch of alcohol. Not much alcohol actually, considering it weighs in at 10% ABV, but itís more evident in the flavor, especially in the end. In the far back thereís some citrusy hints, but Iíd expect more aroma and flavor from the coffee added. Strangely enough the Julebokk, brewed without coffee, tastes more of it than this beer. Itís quite sweet and warming on the palate, full-bodied and quite pleasantly carbonated, and finally in the finish I find something I donít like, a metallic touch. The flavor doesnít have as much heather as the aroma, but thereís sure honey going on. Itís quite bitter too, the hops play their part well even though the amount of bittering hops used doesnít seem to be very high. Toffee and prunes too. Towards the very end it sort of dries up, feeling less sweetish than the Julebokk, the amount of bittering hops used probably plays a significant part it seems. Well, overall this is most definitely a tasteful and pleasant beer, pity it seems to be a one-off, but we can certainly hope for more experiments from this Carlsberg subsidiary. By the way, the 4.0 score I give is with some doubt. In my opinion this beer isnít as good as Julebokk, but itís pretty close. 131031
