look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Virtually black, pours a modest head, which disappears swiftly.

Aroma: Toasty, dry maltyness with a hint of chocolate.

Taste: Very malty, dark chocolate. Not your typical Christmas beer, even though this is labelled such — there’s no Christmas spices or the sort of sweetness that you’d expect. It’s a dry bock, and not a bad one at that. However, I do feel that it lacks the sort of complexity that you might get from a stout or porter of similar characteristics.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, dryish mouthfeel .

Overall: The Julbock was pleasant enough and I could imagine drinking it again, even though it made no lasting impression.

When you pour it up so the beer is dark brown almost a little black, a bit like root beer.
The foam is white and beige come up in time, the foam has its malty flavors.
The sweetness of the malt is there, little dark bread, some chocolate, licorice, bitter orange and a little light coffee notes.
Find some hidden caramel, hay, syrup, fairly muted aromas of this beer.
Personally, I had expected more strong smells.
Then we'll see what this can do in taste away.
It is malty, with a certain sweetness, but you notice right away at the first sip is all carbonic acid.
Lots of small bubbles of carbonic acid. Carbon dioxide remains in the beer all the time, and is just as intense.
You'll also find the flavors of rye bread, bitter orange, chocolate, kaffir, and a little caramel.
The flavors in the beer is there, but little in the background, it takes time to find.
