Pours an offwhite head with a dark amber color body. The head disappears relatively quickly. Aroma of malt, spice and biscuit. Thin palate with a metallic mouthfeel. Ok beer but not overly impressed. I miss some roastyness and caramel malt aroma sice this is a "juleøl".

Dark amber beer with a medium foamy light tan head that dissipates quickly. Nose of molasses, brown sugar, and spice. Flavor is a little more astringent than the nose with bitter chocolate, coffee, nutmeg, and clove. Slightly thin body with crisp carbonation, this is a strange hybrid of a beer. Decent.

From old tasting notes. Orange, brown color topped by a creamy tan head. Light toasted malt nose with sweet caramel notes. Sweet toasted malt flavor upfront with very little carbonation. Rich spicy flavor is spicy and delicious. Creamy mouthfeel and full-bodied. Mild hops in finish, but this is a malt dominant beer. Long malty aftertaste.

33cl "hologram" sparkly embossed bottle. Oddball import. Amber pour, off white head. Aroma is oxidized raisin bread. Flavor follows, though less oxidized. Yes this tastes like "Christmas beer". Good taste of Aass.

Maits (560) - ESTONIA - MAR 14, 2017
Dark amber beer with little beige head. Aroma is malty and caramel. Taste is sweet caramel, light sweet and bitter. Reminds little bit bread. Quite light body for christmas beer, maybe a bit watery. Descent dunkel but I expect something more from traditional christmas beer.

Mahognibrunt med fint skum. Deilige maltaktige toner i duften som brent korn, tørt høy og karamell. Smaken domineres av det samme sammen med noen fruktige toner. Lett metallisk avslutning.
