Details

What’s round, festive and omits no light? Why, it’s a “Black Bauble” of course!

The folks at To Øl 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.

Brewery Info

After several years of brewing beer in their kitchen and selling it to their friends, Tore Gynther and Tobias Emil Jensen founded To Øl in 2010. Their first beer was a collaboration with Mikkeller and, with such an auspicious start, they were always going to do well.

Coupled with their relentless pursuit of big flavours and perfectly balanced beers, they have garnered a well-deserved reputation for innovation and technical skill. Using ingredients not always associated with beer and, with a particular penchant for using fruit wherever they can, you’re always guaranteed a unique, flavourful and boundary-pushing drinking experience.

TO OL certainly know what they are doing when it comes to these kind of beers. Very much enjoyed it
More spice please!

This is a tasty brew with a hint of festive spice - my one quibble is that these flavours are somewhat peripheral to the action, in a Christmas beer especially you can afford to amp these up a little!
Christmas. just.

Better than mince pies and most other Christmas brews. A great start let down in the middle where the flavours dissipate quickly, leaving a watery finish but the initial flavour balance is difficult to beat

It's really taste like Christmas.
Sweet, fully loaded with flavour lots of prunes and raisins but surprising dry finish.
I couldn't not mention beautiful brown head.
