COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Vi har helliget denne øl til de årligt tilbagevendende husspektakler og familieskænderier, som hører lige så meget til juletiden som dansen om det brændende træ. Denne stærke belgiske Ale har en brunlig farve med rødligt skær og en lille, men cremet skumhat. Kroppen er fyldig og sødmefuld. Duft og smag præges af tørrede blommer og æbler, krydderurter, bergamotte, kirsebær, honningkage, chokolade, toffee og karamel, medens eftersmagen udgøres af diskrete riste nuancer samt en blid og balancerende humlebitterhed. Overgæret med belgisk Trappistgær.

AshtonMcCobb (2945) - Edinburgh, - DEC 2, 2012
50cl bottle thanks to Nikolai. Pours a chestnut brown colour with a slight red hue and a thin crema head. The nose has quite a dominant green hop note, possibly herbs or grassiness, then some baked apple and cinnamon. The taste has more of the baked fruit, some chocolate and spice. The palate is medium to full bodied, with a tangy texture and a fairly elegant finish.

glamster (24) - - DEC 1, 2014
An above average christmas beer, and superior to just about anything else that comes from Svaneke Bryghus. Aroma is a bit flat with raisin, leather and a little licorice. Taste is medium sour and light bitter. The alcohol is hardly noticeable. Medium carbonated.

Palme (3591) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 13, 2014
0.33l bottle. This is a light cloudy deep dark and warm ruby brown looking one with a small to medium sized beige soft lacing top. A bit anonymous on the nose. I get tones of something really herbal, almost medicinal like with cough syrup, waxy honey and dried hedge. Light licorice infused, pepper and nutmeg. There is even a little hint of vanilla all the way in the back. A good amount of flavor. Concentrated Coca Cola, more medicinal herbal nuances. It feels oily in the mouth and the carbonation level is about average and small-bubbled. Yeasty bitterness with chocolate wrapper and soft ginger bread. A bit out on the sweeter side of the scale, undoubtedly. A good malty sweetness all the way and it’s leaving a Spicy tail. Not bad at all. 20.11.2013

Beer4000 (4619) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2013
On tap @ Kick mat & Malt. Unclear, dark brown, close to black body with a nice, moderate sized beige head. Aroma is dominated by Christmas spices, some caramel, dry fruit and milk chocolate. Flavor has sweet malt, chocolate, spices, dry fruit and yeast. Interesting, but not necessary in a balance. Quite strong body and heavy in aftertaste. Promising but unfortunately out of balance.
