Jeg var på Cardinal igår, og fikk smake en som var tappet ved juletider i fjor. Magisk. Dette er en veldig god juleøl.

Igjen scorer denne høyt hos meg, helt suveren. Den høye alkohol innhold gjør den helt magisk, har bunkret opp mange, og den blir enda bedre om den får stå til påske

NORSAND (75) - Lillestrøm, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2014
(12 years old / Brewed 2002) Medium deep & dark brown, with reddish notes. Nice colour & apperance. Nose: Sweet malt & caramel, dark honey, molasses and a mix of arabica and darker colombia coffee. Taste & palate: Vinous, strong, lots of dark, sweet malt, quite rich, liquorice, five spice and lots of coffee. Light sweetness which is well integrated. Quite well balanced, has become more restrained over time and matured into a certain elegance. Medium carbonation which fades rather quickly in the mouth. Impressive 12 year old (commercial) Christmas doppelbock which still is quite alive.

Bottle bought at Vinmonopolet, tasted at home. Pours dark brown with little tanned head. Aroma of nuts, dried fruits, caramel. Some roasty flavors. Smooth mouthfeel. Distinct bitter finish. This beer proves that Ringnes is able to brew good tasting beers as well!

Hallstein (483) - Skogn, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2014
Was lucky enough to taste a 2002 bottle of this lovely brew. It’s not beer at all. Reminds me a lot more about port wine or good sherry. Loads of dark fruits, sweetness and christmas spices as anise, cinnamon, allspice etc. Carbonation is still present, but the beer is incredibly smooth, and the alcohol cannot be tasted what so ever. Delicious brew! (The most smooth beer i’ve ever tasted, hands down.)

Dark brown qith a hint of ruby. Good beige head. Aroma of prunes, raisins, dark caramel and port. Similar taste and full mouthfeel, Liquorice. Soft caronation. An absolutely wonderful Doppelbock!
