3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 15/20
Enjoyed in Ilulissat, Greenland, where this Xmas ale is available for purchase at most supermarkets (try the Pisiffik down by the harbour). A hoppy, full-bodied ale that’s sort of bitter and may have too much alcohol for its own good.
Old amateur rating: Dark brown color with fine brown head. Aroma and taste is crasy spicy, fine for christmas, but out of season all to much.

Bottled. Red / Orange in color. Minor beige head. The aroma is malt, ice.. a sweetness. The flavor is malty and yeasty. It’s dry and has a sweet aftertaste. There is quite an interesting taste in this one. I can not distinguish the ingredients Blom (848) - Sorø, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2009
Backlogging: Orange with a low head. Sweet aroma: caramel and some christmas spices. Overall sweet with just a glimpse of bitterness.

Sampled at Beerfestival 2006, Horsens. Pours a clear brown beer with a beige head. The aroma is caramel and spices (coriander). The flavor follows the nose with additional notes of fruit, proberbly from the belgian yeast. The palate is spices and caramel with roasted notes. Overall a nice beer.

03/11 0.5 l bottle courtesy of ogivlado, thanks for sharing! New country count. It poured red to brown body with medium sized ocher head. Nice malty caramel and fruity ale yeast in aroma. Slightly sweet flavor, caramelly, very pleasant, but BB date passed 7 months ago, which is definitely felt here. Simple, with medium body. Finishes shortly with some darker fruits. It’s fine in this shape as well, but if only it was fresh. ogivlado (8108) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 19, 2008

Bottle that ogivlado received in a trade with faroeviking (thanks!), shared with him and heavy.bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 25, 2008
Poured a nice red body tinged with amber. Medium-small beige head that went away slowly. A nice fruity malty nose, jam, some grain, nut and dust. Dry, bitterish taste at first, hop, notes of alcohol, stale dusty yeastiness (it’s a bit old), but then malt shows up.. sweetish honey, bubblegum, pomegrenate... nice maltiness. This was quite nice fresh I guess and not all that bad in this state as well.
(Bottle) Pours a hazy mahogany body with a spare beige head. Aroma of raisins, gingersnaps, toasted malt, brown sugar, molasses, plums, and caramel. Flavor of watered down cola, caramel malt, clove, nutmeg, and fruitiness.
