Karamel og sådan lidt syrligt nelliker.
Flot lys kastanje.
Behagelig imødekommende humle. Mellemlaget er cara, let cigar og alkohol sødme men ender i en tør bitter finish.

10%ABV. Belgian quad/abt.
Poured out amber-brown. 28ºSRM.
Nose is malt candy sweet and with a musty dusty aroma note.
Mouthfeel is watered honey. Palate has barley toast, graham cracker, bread crusts. Malt palate is full-bodied and leans towards being bready. There is a thin pervasive sweetness that runs through the palate. Hop flavors are wood with a hint fo sap, incense and perfume.
Finish is a little warming and boozy.
Overall, pretty good and reminiscent of a Westvleteren 12. Mr_Pink_152 (5779) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2017
Big 750ml bottle from the brewery. 2017 version at 10.5%Aroma is yeasty fruit but dominTed by the cinamon. Taste rich spicy and light sweet. Medium to fUll body. aleksander9 (1927) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 22, 2017
-late tap- Gingerbread, caramel and fruity finish. A great balanced sipper. jb (3454) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 16, 2017
Not my fave of one of my favorite styles. Too much burn, and something a tiny bit off in the nose and the taste, and a bit thin in the taste department. Now, what did I like you wonder? Light reddish appearance, fine spotted lace, somewhat hazy appearance, some dark fruit in the nose and taste. Mouthfeel good, syrupy. Hmm better as it warms. Go Santa go.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2017 Amber, hazy. Aroma dominated by typical christmas spices. Taste not so much, more dates, figs and raisins. Some yeastiness and bitterness also comes along.

Flaske 750ml fra Vinmonopolet Tromsø Langnes. Delt med flere under juleølsmaking på Gleipne 17 Nov 17. Ultramørk aprikosfarget. Høyt mokkafarget skum. Spotlacing. Lett krydderaroma. Silkemyk munnfølelse. Smaken lett søt ingefær med hint av kanel. Rune (13781) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2017
750ml bottle shared with Egil Børge, Leif, Odd and Finn. Big, bubbly off-white head with fine duration. Dark apricot coloured body, decent lacework on the glass. Dried fruity aroma, doughy. Rich malt-fruity taste including caramel, wood and dried fruits sustained by a touch of cinnamon. Lingering malt-fruity ending, rather sweet. Slow sipper with Yuletide qualities. (Tasting session of Christmas beers, Tromsø 17.11.2017). nuplastikk (6514) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 17, 2017
750ml bottle. Rather beastly Belgian Amber Strong Ale type thing. Heavy handed, not really nailing it in a Belgian way. The amber malt is thick, lending a big cherry tone. Odd fusel tinged Winter Warmer aroma. Malt liquor like at times, not unlike a Barleywine as well. Not really that impressive of an offering. StilleStorm (1583) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 12, 2017
DWFADSJT; Poured moderate, hazy cover with a lasting, lacing off-white head. Nose is moderate to heavy, malt, sugar, yeast, moderate citrus, spice and light floral. Taste is heavy sweet and bitter with a lasting sweet, sugary, malt finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. TorbenJensen (1590) - Valby, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2017
Moderate foaming beer with fine aroma of caramel and dried fruits. The taste varies over a little plum and raisin, thyme and anise. It has a slightly sharp taste of alcohol in the end, but generally it seems that it is a bit too messy in its composition. There is no theme or edge in the flavors, but it is okay.
