UPDATED: DEC 27, 2018 Une bitter de 4,2 % présentée en bière de Noël, je pense qu'il n'y a que des anglais pour sortir un truc pareil … Mon exemplaire avait 14 mois en plus que sa date (pour compenser quelque peu cette faiblesse native ...). Couleur acajou foncé, à la clarté nette. Mousse blanc cassé, à fins flocons, stable à 1 mm. Arômes de baies sauvages, airelles, pointe de cerises noires. 1ère bouche fluide avec un petit malt à whisky, et une pointe d'épice. Arrière-bouche sur une ambrée épicée, à la texture très légère. 2ème qui densifie un peu la baie sauvage, avec pointe de muscade. Arrière-bouche un rien poivrée. La longueur est acceptable, mais sans vraie complexité. Quant à la texture, quand je vois que le brasseur a parlé de ' full bodied ' .. c'est à hurler de rire !! Jambes fines, courtes. Levure basique. Alcool qui avait pris 1 petit % en plus sur son vieillissement. Finale avec des nuances de vin rosé de la Loire. CONCLUSION : lorsque cette bière vieillit un peu (date plus 14 mois), elle atteint le niveau d'une ambrée un peu épicée, avec des saveurs acceptables, mais on est bien sûr très très loin d'une vraie christmas. Rudolph est un vieux rocker, mais il n'est pas le père Noël … (3/3/3/1/5)

A very pleasant beverage which I have had the pleasure of enjoying both from the bottle and the cask. This beer should be for life not just for christmas.

500ml bottle kindly shared by Finn. Good looking with a deep copper coloured body under a remaining, off-white head. Spotty lacing. Dark caramel-fruity aroma. Fine blended taste profile of slightly roasted caramel malts and English, leafy hops. Smooth bittersweet ending. Drinks very well. Typical for the style and I like it (Session at Finn’s place in Tromsø, 02.02.2017).

Flaske 500ml fra Kilpishalli. Delt med Rune i heimen 2.2.17. Mørk amber. Lavt kremaktig skum. God karamellaroma. Smaken mye malt ispedd litt krydder. Litt julestemning i denne.

nephirem (975) - CROATIA - JAN 23, 2017
Backlog. Bottle, 0.5l. Clear amber pour with very visible carbonation. Small sized slightly off-white head with poor retention. Practically no lacing. Smell is malty and grassy. Thin body with watery texture. High carbonation. Bittersweet taste with notable metallic acidity. Aroma of malts and caramel. A bit grassy, touch of bread and vanilla. Watered down and quite subdued, works really poor in combination with very high carbonation level. Dry finish. Overall, mediocre bitter.
