Aroma of brown malts, caramel, apple’ish hops, berries, spices and dust.
Fawn big head, deep amber-brown-red body, somewhat hazy, and particles. Lacing; some fields.
Tastes spicy malts, hops, roasted malts, dark bread, roasted raisins, dark caramel notes all over the place.
Finishes malty with spices, juniper, oak - a fine "brown" malty ale’ish aftertaste. Normal feel, quite good body. Overall nice and good brew. Good for heavy yuletide dishes.

On bottle from Ica Hasle, bb date 20710/2016. Brown color, some offwhite foam- quite low carbonation. Medium aroma intensity; malt, hops, dried fruits, slightly roasted notes. Medium body & complexity. Some immediate sweetness, but the following bitterness balances well. Enjoyable thebeertourist (5188) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2010
Bottle from Fenakroken. Dark brown with a healthy head. Caramel and chocolate aroma. Dry chocolate flavours throughout. A bit watery texture, but overall a very good brown ale. Palme (4857) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2011
Some samples from a 0.75l bottle @ Kai-Sindre’s (InBreak) wedding. This one pours a deep almost murky brown body with a lasting light tanned creamy head. Aroma has lots of dry cocoa, some chocolate malts and it’s lightly sweet. Really nice actually. Lively carbonation, it has a thin and somewhat watery mouthfeel and it’s quite light-bodied. Flavors are also dominated by that dry chocolate/cocoa found in the aroma, light yeast and it ends with some nice mild nutty flavors. Dry and kinda lasting aftertaste. Yeah, I quite liked this one, although it’s not your "standard" Christmas ale. Did suffer a bit on the palate because of only the ABV 4.7%, so I’m really looking forward to trying it’s big brother!

0,75L bottle, courtesy of gunnar. Thanks a lot! A tall fine-bubbled lightly tanned head, upon a near-clear brownish red body. Light ashy, dry caramelly malts on the nose. Some fine spice and fruit notes, and a whiff of earthy and peppery hops. Dry, medium strong malt body. A pleasant flavor of dark unsweetened chocolatey and nutty malts with a light sourish twist. A very light caramel sweetness beneath. Also a mild roastedness. Some earthy and lightly spiced hops in the backbone. Not very full, but balanced and complex. Powdery texture. Lasting malt finish. A very good Brown, and top end Norwegian ’groucery store’ beer.
