“What’s round, festive and omits no light? Why, it’s a “Black Bauble” of course! Yes we have decided that Christmas isn’t Christmas without a spiced dark ale, and have whipped up a festive 8% beer just for you! A rich dark ale with orange peel and cardamom, with a touch of smoked malt to remind you of chestnuts roasting on an open fire. For those unsure a ‘bauble’ is the (usually) colourful balls you hang on your Christmas trees!”
Style: Spiced Porter
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 Mælk. 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…
Style: Imperial Sweet Stout
