3.24/5 rDev -2.4%
Appearance is amber with a small white head leaving very light lace.
Smell is sweet, kind of dirty dishwater, ethanol.
Taste is generic, a little sweet, and heavy phenols.
Mouthfeel is lighter, a little sticky.
Drinkability is easy in that there is nothing too it. On the other hand, it's generic cheap ale. The label had snow on it, I thought it would be more of a winter warmer, and perhaps that is the intent, but it's way to thin and generic.

Poured from a 300 ml bottle.
The colour is light amber, transparent, with a one finger head which quickly dissolves leaving light lacing on the glass.
Light fruity and caramel aroma.
Taste is lightly bitter.
Quite thick on the body, a bit oily too and medium carbonation.

330ml bottle poured into Leffe chalice. One finger head, dark mahogany colour, dense but clear. Had a slight citrus aroma, I could't detect anything else. Fairly similar taste to Palm Special, had a bit more malt and a more bitter finish. Despite this I'd say it had a weaker taste with less flavour. The mouthful was slightly heavy but nice, average carbonation.

Poured amber with a very nice head, and smelled of roasty caramel and hops. Flavor was not unlike it's brother Palm, with a good amount of malt to accompany the hops. This "double" version however had a thicker mouthfeel but kept the same amount of drinkability. There's an "average" quality to the flavor, with the pils quality that is the backbone of so many all-nighter beers of this area of the world. I'd say this is a very good beer to drink at a Christmas party that won't floor you like some other Sinterclaus biers will do. Zwarte Pete would enjoy it. So did I.

33cl into a tulip. Pours a gorgeous clear reddish copper, stunning color. Minor cream colored head receded slowly, minor lacing.
Aroma is mildly sweet and spicy, quiet, subdued.
Taste is wholly unexpected, unknowing I may have guessed an american amber ale with a slightly different yeast profile. Minor teabag in the aftertaste. Lacks complexity. Thin mouthfeel.

33cl bottle and 6% ABV
A: Clear dark copper colour, nice thick dark head.
S: loads of malts and it has a slight burnt thing to it
T: burnt coffee, malts, not unpleasant but nothing exceptional.
M/D ABV, fine, feels a bit watery but fairly drinkable

Palm dobbel, probably best qualified as a dark ale, but nevermind:
it's dark copper, brown colour, creamcoloured head, thin, but decent carbonation.
Smell and taste are of sweet malt and caramel, some dark dried fruits too. Grassy hops as well.
Aftertaste has a bite to it.
The whole brew is ok: it's warming as a winterbeer should be, it's 6% abv is easy going down. Not very complex or exciting , but it will surely do on a Xmas party where tasting and sampling is not the the point.

3.85/5 rDev +16%
A: Reddish copper color, white head and great lacing.
S: Caramel and malt aroma, maybe a bit over the top, but interesting.
T: Butterscotch flavor with light spice and pine cleanser (but in a good way).
M: Good body for the style.
D: Despite the poor opinions, this is an interesting, warming and drinkable winter beer.

300 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal pub, Stavanger. ABV is 6.0%. Nice amber / redddish brown colour, decent off-white head. Pleasant aroma of lightly roasted malts with some caramel, fruits and spices. Rounded and lovely flavour, again lightly roasted malts with a subtle touch of fruits and spices, hints of yeast. Moderate bitterness. Easy drinking, impossible to dislike. However, you might want MORE of the pleasant aroma and flavour elements.
