This beer is our new X-mas beer for the coming season. Milder and less powerful roasty taste than Nissefar. More maltiness from the crystal malts and more fruity taste from lots of aroma hops, incl a hard to describe taste from our secret ingredient.

Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle - batch 516. Dark dark red in color, with a medium brown head. The first thing that strikes me when I stick it up to the nose, is an intense smell of dishwashing-soap. Getting some weak hints of other aromas aswell, but this smell of soap masks everything else. The same weird smell appears in the taste. The fact that noone else mentioned this in their rating of the beer, makes me wonder if this is infected...

Flaske. Mørk brun, med litt skum som forsvinner ganske kjapt. Aromaen er malt, mørke frukter og tre. Smaken er mest dominert av mørke frukter, men også tre, malt, noe røsted i bakgrunnen sammen med noe krydder. Kompleks og god øl. Spennende og gjennomført.

Rather black appearance with little head. Tastes of green apples, candy sugar and transparent coffee. Medium body, low carbonation and a finish of dark grapes. Everything is Christmas

gyllenbock (9704) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 6, 2015
Bottle bought at Vinmopolet in Trondheim, June 2014. Clear dark brown with a medium firm head. Aroma and taste of malt, some chocolate, light nuts and caramel. Medium body and with a soft carbonation. A descent one.

SirLimpsalot (4421) - SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2015
@ Eddan 15-12-5: Tydlig doft av nötter och russin. Lite bränd knäck i eftersmaken. Fyllig och småtrevlig.

Vighals (4338) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - OCT 6, 2015
Batch 500, oktober 2014. Dup brun klar med to fingre høyt lys brunt skum. Lukter som svensk julmüst. Kaffe, nellik, lett appelsin og karamell. Søtlig noe brent karamell, men nokså skarp nellik og pepperig smak. Middels fylde og varighet.

nogva (85) - NORWAY - JAN 14, 2015
Pours dark brown with a modest tan head that dissapers in about a minute. Aroma of malt, caramel, some yeast and lingering alcohol. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Taste of dark roasted coffee, star anise and some dark berries with a quite spicy/hoppy finish.

tandembrauer (1558) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 24, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2016 Bottle at home. Pours dark brown, almost black with tanned head (we had two bottles - one almost no head, one with over-carbonation). Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, some spices, and alcohol. Notes of American hops. Taste sweet, with some roasted bitterness; vanilla, caramel. Very good and tasty beer. Rerated 2016-12-02: Aroma of phenols, esters and yeast. Tastes like bad homebrew, very different from earlier tastings.
