3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
And so it came to pass that six like minded people met on the 20th day of November in the year of 2016: those six people shared twenty five fine beers. This is one of those twenty five. Sadly this 500ml bottle was old of date by two years, but it seemed fine to me. Lightly tanned head on a dark, murky brown body. This had an aroma and taste of a malty and creamless Black Forest Gateaux that had extra spices added in it’s cake mix. I enjoyed it.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Copenhagen 20/11 2016. 50 cl bottle as "69 N" Juleøl in Meny. Silhouette of Santa on his sleigh with some industrious Reindeer doing all the work. Pours clear dark brown with light beige head. Settles as flimsy layer of foam. Aroma is rather strange. It’s quite sweet with caramel and brown sugar but there is a quite strong odeur of what reminds me of Cinnamon. Soft carbonation and slightly thick palate. Flavor is way too sweet and sugary. Heavy sweetness without any hints of bitterness. This is like hibernating in a giant jar of sugar and Christmas spices. Not for me I am afraid.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2016 Bottle received from Saxo in a small trade. Pours a very dark deep reddish brown with a tan colour head. Aroma of Christmas spices, Christmas cake, malt and chocolate. Medium+ sweetness, light bitterness. Full rich body, slick texture, but too carbonated. A very enjoyable Christmas beer even in June!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Malty smooth nose. The beer starts malty with a sweetish malty layer. Malz-Bonbon, hints of burned caramel. Smooth but easy to drink. Not too deep, malty with a nice intense roasted-sweetish aroma and no bitterness.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma of roasted malt with hints of herbs, star anis and chocolate. Dark with a short lasting white head. High sweetness and taste of brown sugar, not much bitterness. A bit unbalanced. Soft carbonation and with a bit watery texture. Not very good!
