Beautiful chestnut colour with a fine off-white head. Aroma is sweet with notes of honey and spices. I also managed to pick up some hints of the nutmeg - very nice. Pleasant dry bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light-brown unclear appearance with a very smooth light tanned head, though quick settling. Smells really nutty and caramel, like sirup. Medium carb, a little less would suit the beer more i think. Tastes very little of alcohol, more taste of nuts, caramel and cardemomme. Better than i had hoped for.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
66 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Amber colour with nearly no head. Very unpleasant spicy aroma with a lot of alcohol. Also a alcoholic flavour with spice and roasted malt. A really strong and unpleasant christmas ale for me.

Very dark Christmas beer, that tastes heavy of its included spices. Cinnamon and koriander are very prominent.

Bottled vintage 2005 (tappat den 26.10.2005)
Dark ruby color, small creamy off-white head, some lace. Nose has cinnamon, honey and English flowery hops. Medium-bodied, berry-like flavor, sweetish in the beginning with cinnamon, finish brings hops. Hints of licorice in the aftertaste. Quite Christmasy and interesting.
