Bottle. Pours black. Off white head. The aroma has got a sweet christmasy feel to it. Notes of gingerbread, coffee and clove. Add some coffe bean roughness in the aftertaste and you get the picture of how it tastes. I really like this beer because of its christmasy feel and high drinkability!

Bottle. Pours a clear and brown beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, sweetness and spices with cloves and cinnamon. The flavor follows the nose closely. The palate is sweetness and spices. Overall an average beer with too many spices and a lot of sweetness.

Black with a large, off-white head.
Fresh, slightly roasted aroma and flavour with ginger.
Light to medium bitterness and pretty moderate sping makes it a good beer in my palate!

Härlig julkryddig doft, gran, en, rosmarin.
Smaken är tydlig präglat av pepparkakor (ingefära) och en trevlig humlebeska.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown with a small tan head.
Very spicy nose, reminded strongly of gingerbread. The taste was not as spicy. Bitter taste with a rather thin mouth feel. Artful beer, ok but not in balance, one can safely say. Drinkable, but a bit "bothersome" in the long run.
