Ever since the Viking era, the Christmas beer tradition has been strong in Norway. As stated in the 'Gulatingsloven' (a regional law text valid until 1274), every farmer was bound by the law to brew beer for Christmas and christen it according to the new faith, otherwise running the risk of losing his assets to the king and bishop. The Christmas beer was normally brewed from the best grain of the season and would be strong with a rich malt flavour. Dahls Strong Christmas Beer is a modern version of the traditional Norwegian Christmas beer.
Dahls Strong Christmas Beer is a nordic Christmas beer with a brown/black colour. The aroma is marked by yeast fruitiness and malt aromas reminiscent to banana, toasted malt, toffee, plums, nuts and prunes. The taste is mildly bitter with notes of caramel, toasted malt and spices.
Dahls Strong Christmas Beer is suitable for traditional Norwegian Christmas food, such as rib roast, lamb, turkey, fish or coffee and nuts.
