Bottled @ Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours light brown with a big white head. Sweet caramel aroma, taste is the same, mild,smooth and a distinct bitter finish, not bad.

3fourths (9367) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 5, 2003
Dark amber brown with a medium tan head. Smells of pine needles and malts. Taste is abrasive, like a floor wax with a pine needle scent. Very sharp, with flavors of raisens, mint, pine, and soap. Can't say I enjoyed this one at all.

Svesse (8982) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2009
(Bottle, Lorry, Oslo, 5 Nov 2009. 4.7%) Reddish brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty nose with caramel, toasty malt, red berries and hints of spicy hops. Malty taste with notes of caramel, red berries, dark fruit and slightly spicy hops in the finish. Some initial malt sweetness, dries out towards the end. Fairly thin but rather tasty.

Good, malty aroma - at first skunky - but it mellows and sort of grows on you. Kind of a thin pour with a light head. Detect a bit of chocolate undertones -reminds me of a schwarzbier as it has the taste of a stout but not the same heavy feel to them. All in a all a good solid beer.

Finn (8305) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2009
Dark red colored. A rapidly disappearing tanned head. Sweet malty aroma with some fruit. Flat sweet watery flavor. Some sweet bitter aftertaste.

Sigmund (8033) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2002
Try the stronger 'klasse F' version of their Juleøl instead. Rerate 2002: Has the good caramel sweetness, maltiness and spiciness a Norwegian Christmas beer should have - there's just too little of everything! And 4,5% ABV is simply not enough for this style. The 'klasse F' (6,2%) is still A LOT better!! I believe the version sold in the US is 5,9%.
