JorisPPattyn (9088) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 16, 2004
Fully ruby red, cola-like carbonation to amber-yellow head, fast gone. Fruity (dark fruit as plums) and bread-malty nose, Bocklike. Sweetish, liquorice. Bready taste, blueberry, tobacco, little hint of piney hops, but mostly dark, sweet malts. Rather thin, watery body. Carbonation gets fast exhausted. Lets one down after some time, after a very good start. German character, Scandinavian MF.

Hansen (8224) - Assentoft, DENMARK - APR 9, 2010
Amber and clear. Has an off-white head, mostly lasting. Heavy caramel aroma, notes of lactic acid too. Flavor is thin compared to the aroma, faint sweet, light acidic. Watry texture.

Svesse (7640) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2011
(Bottle, Stockholm Beer Festival, 1 Oct 2011) Dark brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with dark bread, toasty malt, crispbread and raisins. Malty, slightly roasted taste with notes of dark bread, wort, chocolate and hints of raisins. Medium body, with a certain sweetness and a mild, spicy bitterness. Quite nice.

larsga (7079) - 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.)

KnutAlbert (6600) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2009
Bottle. A fairly traditional Scandinavian Christmas beer. Lots of sweet malt, caramel malt to give color. Some spicy hops, sweet finish. If you want to boast of brewing craft beer, you should be a bit more inventive than this.
