Miksu (5023) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAR 13, 2015
0.33 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Reddish brown color. Sweet raisiny, figgy and toffeish aroma. Sweet taste with raisiny caramel, toffee, dark sugar, cocoa and bitter caramel. Full body. Fairly caramelly taste, which I don’t normally like, but this one goes down well.

yngwie (14703) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle. An almost clear one, dark amber to brown in color and with a dense, finger-thick light beige head. The aroma is roasted and caramelish, with a pleasant hoppyness. Nuts and a touch of coffee. It’s quite bitter on the palate, medium to full-bodied and with a pleasant carbonation level. Roasted malts, nuts, caramel and hoppy bitterness in the flavor, lasting for a good while. Quite tasteful this one, and dangerously easy drinkable. 150124

Foffern (1360) - Bodø, NORWAY - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle at home. The color is clear, deep, reddish brown topped with a creamy, light beige head. Sweet aroma of dried fruit, chocolate, fruity hops, coffee, pine needles and leather. The flavor has more fruity hops with pine and grapefruit, and roasted malt and coffee lingering in the background. Has a slick mouth feel, and a balanced bitterness. A nice ale with a fine mix of roasted malt and fruity hops.

Beergaard (156) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2014
Dark amber-brown color and a small off-white head. Nice, floral and sweet hoppy aroma with clear malty notes and a slight alcohol sensation as well - which i think fits well for a christmas beer. The taste is quite hoppy as well, without being too bitter, and with a strong caramel-like malty backbone. Very nice take on the traditional christmas beer and i think it would pair great with most Danish christmas food
