This is a rich, dark, joyous brew with which to celebrate the holiday season. It’s aroma of chocolate malt and spiciness is reminiscent of the wonderful smells of holiday baking in Mom’s kitchen. Silky smooth on the palate, it’s predominantly malty, with smoky, spicy and citrusy notes and a long, lingering finish that is lightly tart and malty. Bottle conditioned for a fresh, lively taste. Round and well balanced, it’s a welcome addition for holiday tables and beyond.
Sold as King’s Blue in Norway.

Pours a clear, dark, ruby-brown with a light tan, clingy head. Unique nose. Weeds, garden vine, sweet, pull candy, custard. Moderately viscous with a moderate crispness. The flavors follow the nose.

@ Basunen 16-11-19: riktig tråkig öl. Små toner av kryddor och lite kola, annars inget.

nutjes (1330) - Zwevegem, BELGIUM - NOV 3, 2016
25cl-fles op Mario’s kersbierentasting in de tennisclub te Ieper. U: Helder kastanjebruin met lichtbruine schuimkraag. G: Karamel, gedroogd fruit, veel sinaasappelschil, kruidnagel en wat koriander. S: Zoet met een bittertje. Opnieuw domineren karamel en sinaasappelschil het pallet. Ook zeer alcoholisch. Er valt ook kruidnagel, gedroogde pruimen en chocolade waar te nemen. Is niet meteen in balans. M: Niet echt volmondig met een carbonatie aan de sterke kant.

fiery1 (1817) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 25, 2016
250ml bottle @ home. Bottled 2003.08.29. Pours a very dark brown with a small tan head that dissipates quickly. Nose of caramel and some Christmas spices. Flavour is caramel, brown sugar, light chocolate. Overall this is a very smooth ale, a great sipper... thinking I should have kept this for a Christmas Day beverage. Thank you Alex for the bottle!

mariuspoenari (3181) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2016
25cl bottle. Dark ruby-brown pour with a tan head that gives way to a sticky lacing.Smells like dried fruit, coffee, chocolate, toffee, red grapes, copper. The taste follows the same notes, bitter-sweet leaning towards sweet, with a medium body, soft carbonation and a sticky sweet aftertaste.

partchapol (143) - Ohio, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Smell of malt, dark fruit, lemon, sugar. Come in dark red clear with thin creamy crown. Taste well, fresh, right carbonated, somewhat light body. Could take as slightly bland. Taste of fruit, malt, airly. Right texture. Pretty good, easy drink overall

benfergy (248) - Valley City, North Dakota, USA - MAY 7, 2016
Has an aroma of grassy hops, fruit, and barrel aging, and as I sip I taste caramel malt; the taste has average sweetness and bitterness, but no sour; generally a decent beer (this bottle was old, so perhaps it’s not in best condition).
