Bottle broke when I opened it. Pours black with a tanned head. Aroma of licorice, dark caramel, some roasty coffee. Sweet taste, nice mouthfeel. For me, it’s a nice beer, but the aromas don’t combine as well.

Mørekysten rødbrun med lavt beige skum. Karamell og mørke frukter. Søt brent karamell, frukter og lett bitter ettersmak.

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!

Pours very clear dark amber with tan head. Sweet malt, caramel, biscuit aroma. Very smooth and well balanced. Is this the best christmas beer? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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!

tmrmwel (1033) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 2, 2014
Pours dark brown with a small head. Aroma is roasted malts and grain. Not overly complex, but still quite nice. Full body with soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet with chocolate malts, dark fruits, notes of anise as well as some alcohol that ends in a long sweetly finish.

Flott mørk rød/brun farge, lukter karamell, malt, alkohol og kaffe. Flott skumlag, medium kullsyre og fylde. Lang og god ettersmak.
