50 cl bottle from Rimi supermarket. Pours hazy copper with a beige head. Aromas of chocolate, fruits and roasted coffee. Light bitter taste. Good beer. Not the typical Norwegian Christmas-style beer.

ERB92 (772) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 28, 2014
Nuts, coffee, licorice, roasted malts and hints of some berries and spices in the aroma. Dark brown with a tan head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a average carbonation. Overall a bit to thin, but fair enough.

Simonsen (1318) - NORWAY - NOV 14, 2014
Flaske fra rimi siggerud. Mørk uklar farge. Mykt karbonert med hvit skumtopp. Smaker mørkbrent malt,furunål nøtter, noe kaffe, mørk frukt og hint av lakris. Ganske god men ikke helt hva jeg forbinder med juleøl

Russo (2011) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - APR 9, 2014
Amber color with a nice off white head. Aroma is roasted malt with hints of some dark fruits and yeast. Flavor is like aroma with more notice of roasted malt. Low to medium carbonation and a medium body with a roasted bitter finish.

David10 (21) - Oviedo, SPAIN - FEB 9, 2014
01/02/2014 --> Lúpulo Feroz - Oviedo. Cerveza estilo Belga bastante compensada en su totalidad pero inferior a lo que nos tiene acostumbrados Nøgne Ø. Buen regusto final pero sin muchos matices destacables.

GBZ59 (1217) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - JAN 3, 2014
Botella de 500ml. Copa de Vino. Color marrón oscuro y espuma bronceada. Corona cerrada, firme y persistente. Aromas de maltas tostadas y caramelo, especias y toffees, redondeados por notas florales y de hierba. Entrada tostada y torrefacta con leve amargo. Cuerpo medio y carbonatación moderada. Textura densa algo aguada. En el intermedio afloran notas de café, amargor floral y sutiles trazos de fruta oscura, como la ciruela, que permanecen en el reseco y prolongado final amargo. Trazos de madera y cacao amargo en el retrogusto. 500ml bottle. Wine glass. Dark brown color & tan head. Close, thick & lasting crown. Toasted & caramel malt, spiced & toffee aromas rounded by floral & grassy notes. Toasted, roasted & slight bitter upfront. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Oily to watery texture. Cofffe notes & floral bitterness as well as subtle dark fruit plum-likenotes arise in the middle & linger into a dried & long bitter finish. Woody hues & bitter cocoa on the aftertaste.
