4.35/5  rDev +16.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

When I saw 19% on the bottle, I knew I'd have to pick some up. My first experience with the grand Scandinavian tradition of Christmas Ale leaves me wanting more.

Look: Pours oil-slick black and stays that way in the body, no light shining through at all. Visible viscosity on the pour even at slightly-above-recommended temperature. No head to speak of but carbonation forms a thin, eggshell lacing around the rim.

Smell: Disappointingly muted on the nose, with only brown sugar and currant notes coming through even at room temperature.

Taste: Rich and bittersweet with toffee, burnt caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg, and fresh date notes. Some alcohol bitterness on the back of the palate but otherwise hides its formidable 19% abv well.

Feel: Heavy but not flabby with moderate carbonation. Some light syrup on the tongue.

Overall: While a bit early to celebrate the holiday season, this juleøl is sure to please anyone looking for a rich, dark, and warming brew.
