COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Vi har helliget denne øl til de årligt tilbagevendende husspektakler og familieskænderier, som hører lige så meget til juletiden som dansen om det brændende træ. Denne stærke belgiske Ale har en brunlig farve med rødligt skær og en lille, men cremet skumhat. Kroppen er fyldig og sødmefuld. Duft og smag præges af tørrede blommer og æbler, krydderurter, bergamotte, kirsebær, honningkage, chokolade, toffee og karamel, medens eftersmagen udgøres af diskrete riste nuancer samt en blid og balancerende humlebitterhed. Overgæret med belgisk Trappistgær.

Maits (429) - ESTONIA - MAR 29, 2017
Labeled as Svaneke Christmas Ale. Dark amber/brown beer with small beige head. Aroma reminds sour bread, little chocolate and herbs. Taste is little sour, medium sweet and light bitter. Medium body, creamy texture. Descent strong beer, alcohol is hidden nicely.

minutemat (5414) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2017
Keg @ Kniven, Oslo whilst listening to some great hardcore thrash. Pours hazy dark brown, small tan head. Aroma has dark fruits, light spice, cocoa hints. Taste is smooth Belgian dark ale territory, light on spice for a Christmas beer but perhaps better for it. Good full-flavour with soft dark malts.

Lesartriste (52) - - JAN 31, 2015
Duften i denne øl er ikkeeksisterende, den dufter simpelthen ikke, serveret ved 6-7 grader. Ellers er mange andre parametre gode. Den smager specielt af rigtig meget!

3.7
metalspice (933) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - JAN 9, 2015
Mørk brun med litt rødlige nyanser med et solid skum. Duft avtørket krydder, toffe og nøtter. Smaker eple og julekrydder med en fin og lang bitterhet mot slutten. Veldig behagelig øl hvor smakene kommer krypende mot bunnen av glasset.

Couleur sombre reflets caramel, très légère mousse. Nez malté, fruits noirs, raisin, céréales. Gout malté, chocolaté, grappe raisin, note café, fruité prune, note cassonade, complexe et ronde en bouche. Bon corps. Pas mal!
