Bottled, thanks Rune! Hazy mahogany colour, rich creamy head. Distinct floral nose with fireweed and caramel. Mid sweet with medium-full body and rounded mouthfeel. Lots of caramel and late summer northern Scandinavian flowers. Foffern (1963) - Bodø, NORWAY - FEB 19, 2017
Bottle at Restaurant Bjørk, Bodø. Has a deep brown colour with a big beige head. Aroma of sweet cake, spices, cloves, dried fruit, leather, ginger nut and some alcohol and hints of roasted malt. Flavor of licorice, dried fruit, leather, Belgian yeast and some coffee and alcohol. Has a slick mouth feel, full-bodied and light bitterness. A well-balanced and spiced aroma. The taste is a little unbalanced. Sigmund (7828) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2017

Luke 10 adventskalender 2016. Flaske fra Vinmonopolet Jekta Tromsø. Aroma gløgg, krydder, syrlig duft. Utseende sort med tett beige skum. Smak plomme, krydder med julestemning, litt syrlig. Denne juleøl er veldig god, med julesmak. Edit: den ble mindre syrlig når den ble mer temperert.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Kvadrat. Pours dark amber with a huge frothy off-white head. Aroma of spicy malts, ginger and caramel. Taste is moderate sweet with a light ginger burn, some pepper as well, not a beer for this man.

Fra flaske på Cardinal DSJT nov-16: klar rødlig kobber med kjempefint skum. Mørke bær, ingefærnøtter, krydder (anis?) og appelsin i aromaen. Interessant smak også (malten gjør seg mer gjeldende her), med fin bitterhet og fylde. Lang ettersmak. ClubGonzo (5685) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 21, 2016
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy deep bronze-hued brown body with a huge cloudy off-white head. Nose is clove, nuts, cinnamon, caramel and hints of deep malts, rum and dark sugars. Taste is raisins, caramel, rum, allspice, clove and hints of dark sugars and bread crust. Near-fizzy high carbonation, medium body. Lots of spices in this one, the clove seems to have gotten the best of it though and the mix is a bit off balance. Also, the uncomfortably high carbonation level aggressively pushes the spice agains my palate, taking away from the mellow seasonal feel I like in such beers. Not too bad, but quite far from good. Perhaps next Christmas will be a better one for Bådin. gunnfryd (15175) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2016
