COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In Denmark we are very fond of Christmas beers. In fact, most of December goes with drinking Christmas beers while chewing on fat duck, pork roast, red cabbage and herrings left in vinegar for months. Jule M?lk. Our so far strongest beer, bumped up to 15% ABV and loaded and loaded and loaded with lactose, just until it couldn?t get any more heavy. You could say this is the Foie Gras force-feeding edition of a beer. But then again, it is Christmas after all? Malts: Pale, Special B, Melanoidin, Chocolate, Smoked, Dark Crystal, Roasted Barley, Cassonade Sugar, Lactose Hops:Tettnanger, Tomohawk, Sorachi Ace

Sigmund (7288) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 19, 2017
375 ml bottle shared by my son Steinar. ABV is 15%. Black colour, nice tan head. Lovely aroma of roast malts, chocolate and lactose. Pleasant flavour, not too alcoholic, medium sweet, lots of lactose and chocolate, a hint of smoke. Moderate hops, well balanced. Well worth sampling.

Pitch black color. Dark brown head. Heavy sweet nose with molasses, dark chocolate, dark fruit and ash. Super intense nose. Super sweet with tons of molasses and dark chocolate. Very heavy and sour. Lots of lactic notes in the mouth. Nose is more interesting than the mouth, but good stuff

Smaken van erg veel melkchocolade, en lactose, cacao, alcohol, geroosterde en gebrande mouten, lichte laurier, redelijk tot stevig zoet, prima spul, echter wel hl vl lactose, kandy, wat koffie, crme/romig, ondanks de zoetheid toch wel interessant, wat zachte zoet lactose afdronk met lage co2. redelijke body.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2017 Mooi puur zwart bier met mokkakleurige schuimkraag die langzaamaan inzakt tot fijn laagje. Olie-achtige textuur. Aroma van koffie, chocolade, kandijsuiker, lichte rook, leer. Dikke volle smaak. Noten, donker fruit, dadels, lactose. Zoetig met een (chocolade)bittere afdronk. 15% zit redelijk weggestopt. Drinkt (te) makkelijk weg. Wat een stout !!!

BenL8 (162) - SWITZERLAND - APR 17, 2017
UPDATED: APR 17, 2017 On tap at erzbierschof, january 2016. App: nice thick mocha foam, pours totally oily black, tiny stout bubbles. Aroma: malty, dark malts, nutty, roasty, hints of coffee and chocolate, resiny and bitter yet somehow still refreshing. Flavour: amazing; extremely sweet, resiny, bitter, herbal and spicy, long sweet finish, a little hoppy, no alcohol at all which is just truly amazing, dark berries, some cask flavour. Wow! Awesome beer!
