Fra flaske 400ml fra Vinmonopolet Tromsø Sentrum. Delt med EgilB, Leif, Odd & Rune under juleølsmaking på Gleipne 17 Nov 17. Mørkerød. Lett sherryaroma. Smaken litt plommer & marsipan med hint av krydder. Litt julepreg over denne. Rune (13732) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2017
Two 400ml bottles shared at tasting of Yuletide beers. Misty copper-reddish body. Decent beige head leaving spotty lacing down the glass. Modest dried fruity nose, hints of nuts and caramel. Taste of figs, raisin, nuts and anise. Mid-sweet malty ending. Medium bodied. Easy to drink and food friendly. Fits the season (At Egil Børges place, Tromø 17.11.2017).

Bottle. 5.7%. Best before 21.02.19. Pours a hazy, light brownish/dark orange, with a light tan head. No lacing. Cereals, (dark) fruit and yeast aroma, with a light metallic overtone. Light note of nuts, and a dusty overtone as it warms. Flavour is yeast and fruit, slightly tart, and with a light spicy note. Hint of milk chocolate. Mildly bitter, dark fruit finish. Yeast. A bit dry. Overall okay, if nothing special; maybe a bit generic. 09.11.17. TorbenJensen (1590) - Valby, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2017
With this beer, Nørrebro tried to make a Christmas beer with Belgian flair. Unfortunately, it did not quite succeed, yet it has good and exciting taste notes. Milk chocolate is not a usual beer ingredient, but it managed to get the taste well in the spectrum and it actually works pretty well. Unfortunately, the rest of the taste notes that mark the Christmas (prunes, rosin and nuts) all present in a strange confused taste where none of the parts can give opposition to the sweetness of milk chocolate. The hops bitterness is far too anonymous.

It doesn´t taste bad. Just way to mild for me, when i dream of abbey dubbel arsol (1265) - NORWAY - DEC 20, 2016
Mørk brun med luftig beige skum. Lukter av karamell, sjokolade og krydder.
Lettdrikkelig, vannete med smak av noe sødme. Litt kjedelig.

Bottle. Pours clear reddish brown with beige head. Aroma is sweet and malty with biscuit, caramel, dried fruits and a hint of banana. Taste is malty with bread and biscuit, caramel and fruity notes yet semi-dry to the end. wlf (768) - DENMARK - NOV 21, 2016
Pours red brown with a small off white head; aroma is yeasty fruity, slightly spicy, dried dark fruits, brown sugar; taste is medium sweet, brown sugar, dried fruits, slightly spicy sweet finish; high carbonation with sugary mouthfeel; very sweet, a little cloying but otherwise a nice beer DraftDodger (1793) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2017 Copenhagen 28/7 2016. 40 cl bottle from SuperBrugsen. Nørrebro Bryghus’ elegantly designed bottle. A little motto on the label "Sweet & Intense". Pours clear dark Reddish brown with off-white head. Settles as 0,5 cm thick layer of foam. Aroma is sweet and of dried fruit - figs, raisins and dates, brown sugar, fermented fruit and caramel. Medium carbonation and oily palate. Taste is more sweet than intense. Quite watery actually. Heavy sweetness followed by light bitterness. Lingering sweet aftertaste. If this beer had a higher ABV it might have been something the monks could have used to "lift their thoughts".
