Reddish brown, beige head. Nice sweet aroma with notes of caramel. Flavour is quite sweet too but also very spicy. The first impression was quite disappointing but the beer improved quite a lot. Don’t do drink it too cold. The finish is surprisingly dry and bitter with some citric notes (not like American hops though). Interesting stuff but I definately think the Limfjordporter is better even though the label claims that "Klemme" thinks this is his best beer yet.

Dark brown color with beige head. Aroma is caramel. Taste is pretty sweet with a long lightly bitter finish, but it’s well balanced. Pleasant feeling in mouth, maybe a bit oily. Soft carbonation. A good christmas beer.

Xavalias (172) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2014
Bottle from local supermarket, 8.0% ABV. Pours clear brown with a small beige head that quickly disappears but leaves some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, sweet caramel, some licorice, some hops. The taste is very sweet, balanced with a moderate bitterness. The palate is smooth, medium body and carbonation. Nice, easy to drink, but a bit boring.

0,5 liter, sikke en skøn jule øl, smager rigtig godt, især når den er kold, en ting jeg vil fremhæve når den er kold: er den gode balance imellem sødme, krydderi, fylde og bitterhed, når øllen får lov til at stå og blive lidt varm (10~15 grader) bliver den lidt bitter i smagen og endnu mere krydret i eftersmagen, for øvrigt en lang eftersmag.

PapaVillum (510) - Valby, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2014
50 cl, flaske, 8,0 % ABV, årgang 2013 - BB 22/10/14, købt i SuperBest i Rødovre jan. 2013, 9. november 2014. Mørkebrun juleøl med pæn stor 5 cm tyk moccafarvet skumkrone, medium størrelse bobler og rolig i glasset. Kronen svinder til kant, overflade og gardiner. Aroma: brændte/ristede malte, karamel, kandissukker, Ganske velsmagende med kant og profil. Bitter og sød samt i fin balance. En smule Bock-agtig. Middel bitter og middel sødme, intet surt. Karboneringen opleves på et medium niveau og konsistensen oily. Middel fyldig krop. Medium lang eftersmag. Overraskende god juleøl med en dejlig lidt særlig julekydret smag og -sødme, men lidt kedelig etiket.

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

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
