Brewer: To Øl
Style: Imperial Milk Stout
The Danes love Christmas beers, according to Copenhagen-based To Øl, who brews much of their beer at De Proef Brouwerij in Lochristi-Hijfte, Belgium. These Danes don’t hide it, either — to meet the high expectations of the holiday season, they crafted Jule Maelk, the “super stout” that’s sweet and heavy as Santa himself. This is also the strongest beer To Øl has made to date — 15 percent ABV — and it’s loaded with enough lactose, chocolate malt, and toffee flavor to make your holiday sips memorable.
