Bottle at home. Pours amber with some a little head. Hints of fruits and toasted malts on the nose. Loads of dried/candied fruits and sweet malts with a lingering aftertaste. Some notes og belgian beer in there. An interesting take on a Norwegian Christmas beer. thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 20, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown colour. Fruity licorice nose and flavours, hints of nuts. Semi-sweet, but well-balanced. Very nice. TyggaBrown (430) - NORWAY - JAN 31, 2015
Great holiday ale. Fruity, oily, well balanced, tasty and actually quite refreshing too. TommyLP (3) - Horten, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2011 does not count
Nice aroma on this amber christmas beer. At first I noticed at bitterness that ruined the first impression. After a while in room temperature the caramel/candis and spices became the main aroma. A pleasant aftertaste finished it of. Not an average christmas beer, but I recommend it. VictorSA (182) - NORWAY - DEC 20, 2013
Dyp nÃ¸ttebrun med fin, farvet skum. Aroma av malt, kaffe, flÃ¸tekaramell, plomme og rosin. Flott frukt i munnen, lett sÃ¸dme og fin friskhet med ingefÃ¦r. Lett bitter, fin fylde og lengde. (Havnabakken, 20.12.13)

Glowind ruby red. Raiisins, prunes, lots of malt. Vinous, with a little sour edge. Discreet use of Christmassy spices, cinnamon in the finish. Pleasant sipping. Cunningham (7969) - Halden, NORWAY - NOV 13, 2011
