Minimal head. Coffee colored. Good balance of sugar and bitterness, nice christmas flavors, but it lacks the aroma that makes it special. Better thjan most Spendrup produce though.

VictorStr (1201) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2013
Från SB. Röd brun i Färgen. Väldigt medioker öl. Kroppen är nog det sämsta, inget bra.

mzaar (1508) - Varberg, SWEDEN - NOV 30, 2013
Flaska från SB. Delade meningar runt julbordet. Hälften gillade inte alls den här. Den andra hälften var mycket förtjusta. Däribland jag. Är i stort sett en exakt kopia av Dugges Juldricka. Om den skrev jag: "Nötiga dofter tillsammans med knäck, citron och röda äpplen. Karamell, sötlakrits, nötter och grape i smaken. Trevlig beska." Finns ingen anledning att kommentera det mer än så.

stefannilssons (1446) - SWEDEN - NOV 25, 2013
Egentligen är det inget fel på aromen eller smaken här, lite torr kanske men annars helt okej. Men den fånigt lilla kroppen fullständigt omintetgör den här ölen, tyvärr.

hackobock (1167) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours dark brown with a large dense off-white head. Very light aroma with roasted sweet malt, light hops. Taste is light sweet, light bitter, some metallic and harsh notes in the finish.

OK Christmas beers with good bass and a slight hint of root beer. Perfect for Christmas dinner and schnaps.

NosirIwont (1939) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2013
Bottle. 5.6%. Best before 26.09.13. Pours a clear, dark reddish brown with a big tan head. Good lacing. Malty aroma with a hoppy overtone. Light roasted and vanilla notes. Flavour is malty. Feels a bit thin/watery. Sweetish as it warms; a bit cloying. Bitter, tart finish, bordering wine. Lingering light roasted note and a bit of apple. Overall okay, if nothing special; aroma is better than flavour, which feels too thin, and a bit too sweet. 02.09.13.

Bottle at Papsø. Clear red-brown coloured with a medium sized off-white head. Sweet and malty aroma of caramel, bread and dried fruits. Sweet and malty flavour of caramel, bread, dried fruits and hops. Hoppy finish.
