Yes the big breweries and their staff know how to make a very nice beer. Always one of the best christmas beers in Denmark. Very nice balance between sweetness, spices and bitterness.

630ml bottle, vintage, 2015, beer gift from Skinnyviking, thanks. Fawn-coloured layer at the top, spotty lacing. Hazy dark orange coloured body. Smell of spiced malt-fruity sweetness. Sweet jam-like flavours, impact of caramel, anise, and dried fruits. Gets very sweet in the long run. Nice for sharing. (Big bottle session with Finn, Stefan, Jan Erik and Elisabeth, Troms 05.11.2016).

Hazy amber color with tall creamy head. Aroma of caramel, anis, christmas. Taste is medium sweet with alcohol and licorice notes. Nice strong beer, which is well balanced with alcohol and spicies.

Oelbas (272) - DENMARK - DEC 11, 2015
Lidt uklar rødbrun med holdbart, cremebrunt groft skum. Duft med alkohol, svedsker, malt og kraftig sødme. Smagen er meget blød og fyldig med mørk malt, lakrids og tørret frugt. Kraftig men ikke påtrængende sødme der fortsætter i eftersmagen. Næsten ingen bitterhed.

Lovely red-brown ale. It smells not so violent, but the taste is incredibly rich and filling. Good spicy flavors of lots of things, among cloves. Fine malt rich caramel notes and a sufficiently long-lasting hop bitterness.
