Man skulle kunna hävda att de flesta av Oppigårds öl har en snarlik smak. Man skulle kunna hävda att deras winter ale inte är så julig. MEN sätt dig vid granen med några för årstiden lämpliga citrusfrukter så förstår du också vari det juliga består. Det får dig att vilja byta ut alla söta eller överkryddade julöl mot denna friska välhumlade ale varje dag i veckan hela julsäsongen. Det juliga eller vintriga med denna ale är att malten ges lite mer utrymme väl matchad av en spänstig tallterpentinsk grape- och pommeransbeska. Det blir fler av denna. Garanterat!

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2011 Amber colour, off-white head. Malt and grapefruit in the aroma with some spicy notes. The flavour is sweeter than your average Oppigårds but the bitterness still maintain the upper hand. Hefty.

SamP01 (661) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 24, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours a dark cloudy brown with a huge long lasting creamy tan head. Very good head retention and lacing through out. Aroma of dark roasted caramel malt, dark fruit, espresso and cacao esters fill the senses. Taste is roasted dark caramel malt, espresso beans and cacao, a bit of dark fruit with some mild bitterness. Palate is a full body, creamy texture with mild carbonation. Finish is of roasted dark caramel malt, yeast, espresso beans and cacao, some dark fruity notes ending has some mils bitterness with some lingering roasted espresso flavor. Overall a very good, flavorful and enjoyable brew, nice.

Its head builds up tall and foamy. It is firm and rocky, light tan color and slow fading. A small thin cap hangs on till the very last sip. On the way down the glass it leaves some nice rings of lace. The body has a deep, very dark reddish amber/old copper color with some visible carbonation. The aroma has a modest presence of spicy/herbal hops with a hint of holiday spices and something citrusy. The flavor has a solid hop presence with citrus and spicy/leafy notes. The hops are supported by a mildly sweet and dark bready maltiness. Within it are also notes of brown sugar and a touch of cinnamon. In the finish hop flavor picks up and adds dryness and bit of bitterness. The body has a medium to full feel with a slick smooth texture and active tingly carbonation.

Äntligen en riktigt god jul. Bokstavligt talat. Jag beklagar att inte alla barn får uppleva det här, julen ska ju ändå vara barnens högtid. Om de bara visste att de missar en smakexplosion av perfekt balanserad malt med övervikt åt karamell samt en avvägd humlebäska som följer med hela vägen från första klunk och långt in i eftersmaken. Stackars barn som måste vara utan det här, hoppas ni fyller 18 år så fort som möjligt.

Nice dark ruby, thin head. Fruity floral hops in the nose. Sweet buttery flavour with a lovely dry finish. Didn’t expect much, but this is excellent.
