Ungstrup (31462) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2008
Bottled. An amber beer with a thin tan head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel and so is the flavor, with the caramel continuing for a long time.

oh6gdx (23671) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 12, 2009
Bottled (thanks fonefan!)@Timo A Tasting Session, Tampere. Very reddish amber colour, not much head. Aroma is spices, burnt sugar, some toasted malts as well as caramel. Flavour is malts, some mashlike sweetness, mild alcohol, nuts and some herbal notes as well. As it warms up also licorice shows up quite strongly. Christmassy beer indeed.

fiulijn (16924) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 7, 2009
<i>Tasting at Papsoe</i>
Red-chestnut color. Caramel brew, light aroma, strong flavor; the aroma has also some cereals, and the aftertaste is also nutty. Strong bitterness. Easily boring.

yngwie (15759) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 27, 2009
Bottle, 75cl corked. A clear, copper-colored beer with a small, beige head. Caramel, some spiced notes and a little anise in the aroma. Caramel sweetness, a little spicyness and bitterness in the flavor, quite decent but nothing special. Medium body and nice carbonation level. Some bitterness in the finish. There’s too much caramel in this one, at least for a Christmas beer, giving it a cheap-ish touch. But a decent beer it is. 090724
