3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Dark amber colour, with big beige bubblish head. Aroma of dry fruits, plum and cookies. Christmassy indeed. Flavour is bittersweet plummy, hoppy and weak roast. Palate is quite watery. Also malts noteable. Quite ok, but it lacks something in both flavour and palate...

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Provided by the man behind 90% of my Norwegian ratings, thanks again Yngwie. This pleasant Christmas beer pours a clear, warm, dark amber golden with a small, beige head. Clean and malty nose also with some caramel. Medium body, fruity with flavours of burned caramel - some sweetness yet it ends fairly dry. Quite delicate. 090407

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, thanks Rune! Clear dark ruby, small head. Aroma of roasty malt with some cherries underneath. With it’s restrained sweetness and rather slim mouthfeel it’s more drinkable than most traditional Norwegian christmas beers. Rather fruity with light caranelly malt and a touch of raisins. Low bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2005 Bottled (BB 10/2005)
Dark ruby with nice creamy tanned head, lace. Malty, a bit sweet aroma. Medium to full bodied. Flavor has chocolate, malts and a bit of roast. Some bitter or even harsh notes can be found in a closer look. Good brew from Mack anyhow. (5/5/5/3/11 2.9)
<Re-rate 2005 version
Dark reddish, quickly vanishing off-white head. Malty ryebreadish aroma. Taste is roasted, malty even a bit chocolaty. Short, slightly sugary finish. Nothing wrong with this, but a bit boring. (6/4/7/3/13 3.3)
