larsga (7157) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2008
Biggish light brown shiny head. Deep dark red translucent body. Fruity vanilla fudge aroma, mellow and harmonic. Dry roasty buttery vanilla fudge taste with fruity caramel notes. Mid-bodied. Dry fruity metallic roasty aftertaste. Fruityness clashes with the metal, and really spoils it for me. (0.5l bottle, Systembolaget, Charlottenberg.)

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2009 Clear dark burgundy with a medium beige head. Somewhat sweet aroma with roasted malt, choclate, hops and caramel notes. Flavour had plenty of roasted malt and chocolate and caramel notes. Finished sweet. Not bad.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 21, 2008
(Bottle) Pours clear, reddish brown to deep mahogany with a small sand colored head. The aroma is malty up front with a deep toasted, light caramelly and white bready sting. In addition, a mild roasted chocolate tone is also notable. Hints of brown sugar, vanilla, oven baked cinnamon apples, ripe tangerines, floral hops and dark, dried fruits/raisins. The flavour is solid malty with notes of toast, light caramel, bread and a light roastiness. Some noble, floral hops lurking in the background. Tiny acidic. Maybe a touch of tangerines in the flavour as well. The mouthfeel is round, juicy and smooth with soft and creamy carbonation. Medium bodied. The finish is of bready malt and a clean, fruity/vegetable-ish touch. Near medium bodied.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - DEC 8, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2007 Sample from bottle. Julölsprovning at Haket, Göteborg. Red/brown color. Aroma of sweet lightly roasted malt, brown sugar, raisins and some spiciness. The taste is mostly malty and sweet, lightly roasted and a bit perfume like. A bit above average compared too other similar swedish dark christmas lagers.
