rbesg, on tap at plain kitchen. dark and almost black with a light beige head. rubbery cocoa aroma, mellow but not that exciting, would like a bit more hop action

larsga (6218) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 8, 2007
Small beige lasting head. Dark reddish brown ale. Very little aroma; faint maltiness. Sweetish-dry peppery roasted malt taste with fantastic clarity. Light mouthfeel. Dry, burnt aftertaste, slightly dusty. Very nice. An excellent lager. (0.25l draft at Akkurat.)

Comments: Huge stunning mountainous head. Grainy, well toasted, mild coffee-like, chocolate icing reminiscent, profound beer that, as Jamtlands always does, goes beyond stylistics definition. Sweet and dry, sweet and dry, it’s a switch. Medium vanilla undertones all along. No sourness. Very full-bodied. Complex and hugely drinkable. Even goes further with swift, enclosing floral and herbal hoppy undertones. Fresh and vibrant, I believe this may very well be my favourite Swedish beer.

KnutAlbert (6100) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2006
Jämtland show again that lager can be great. Pitch dark, milk chocolate head, full hoppy dryness that lingers for a long time.Fine for sipping, great with food. Not for novices, perhaps. I’d love to have the Jämtland beers available in Norway!
