Thisted Brewery lies somewhere in between micro- and macro, depending on definition and where you are from in thw world. But rest asure this is a brewery to be taken seriously. Not only do they father the greatest Baltic Porter (Limfjordsporter) and one of the best Danish Pilsner types (Organic Thy Pilsner), but they make this lovely traditioinal Ale by default like it’s nothing to be spoken of. I have the outmost respect for this danish brewery, as they can’t seem to do nothing wrong, and what they do right, they do really, really well. Jule Stenøl (Yule Stone Brew) is made by old Viking tradition, something to do with laying glowing hot stones in the kruid, using it as a heating source. It supposedly makes the malt taste more ’sugary’ in the end, and even though this brew ain’t exactly sweet, it does deliver on those malty flavours. It is a very dark brew, almost stout-like, sweet and malty at first but then it gets bitter and bitter-like. A very strange kind of beer, that you either love or detest. I say, as a lover of anything well crafted, this is indeed a beer with what you should at least pamper yourself at least once

Oelbas (173) - DENMARK - DEC 16, 2013
Brun med kortvarigt cremefarvet skum. Meget svag duft med malt og en smule karamel. Smagen er kompleks, forholdsvis tør og domineret af mørke malte og humle. Giver en brændt fornemmelse i munden på den gode måde. Lang eftersmag, der er præget af mørke malte. God øl, men det brændte element gør den lidt svær at parre med mad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mjs (4584) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 8, 2013
(Bottle, 0.5 l - BB 210814, at Pikkulintu, 20131208) The beer poured very dark brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and almost white. Aroma had malts, molasses and roasted malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, molasses, roasted malts, grassy hops and low bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and bitter. A nice malty brew but there was some unpleasant unbalancedness.

Bamsen78 (3140) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear dark copper brown with a ruby shade and airy light beige head. Clear aroma of malt, fruit and caramel, with a note of roast. Sweet, malty and caramellish aroma, with notes of fruit and very well pronounced touches of alcohol. Slightly bitter finish. OK but rather boozy for the style.

LasseVPedersen (242) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - NOV 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours dark, brown hazy colored with medium, but short lasting beige head. Sweet malt at nose, with burnt caramel and spice. Flavor starts as expected, with caramel, sweet brown sugar and malt, spices, and delightful semi-long bitter finish. Medium bodied, smokey feel, oily with soft-average carbonation. Clear warmness of alcohol to finish it off.
