Joakgust (962) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2008
50 cl bottle - Christmasy nutty color with a medium sized disappearin head. Chocolate and roasted nuts rich aroma. Malty flavor which mixes well with medium heavy bitterness. One of the better swedish Christmas ales!

mybestfriend (263) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2008
2007 bottle. Pours a reddish brown colour with a beige head. Winter spices and hoppy on the nose - also some sweet liquorice, dried fruits and coffee. Smooth mouthfeel but a bit watery. Some sweetness. Some roasted and earthy notes - liquorice, spices and coffee. The finish is a bit thin with some bitterness. I was a bit disappointed with this one.

mugabe (258) - SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2008
2007 bottle. Almost opaque dark ruby with medium head. Aroma of toffee, red wine, dark sugar. Taste is caramel and butter, finishing with a nice bitterness and some alcohol sting.

Eriked (14) - STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2007
This is almost a meal in a glass. Full of flowers in the nose and a complex palate. Fullbodied with a sweet and bitter ending.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - DEC 8, 2007
50cl bottle from Systembolaget. Transparent, dark brown with a medium-thin beige head. Roasty chocolate aroma is a little sweet and has some hops thrown in as well. The flavor is pretty roasty too, with plenty of sweet chocolate and a distinct hoppiness and bitter finish. Almost stoutish in the roast department. Medium body with lots of carbonation, finished pretty clean. I love the hops in Jämtlands beers, and the Christmas brew blends that perfectly into a nice rich, roasty ale.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - DEC 1, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2008 Bottle. Dark red-brown color with a fluffy but mostly diminishing pale brown head. Aroma of dark fruit, spices, toffee, caramel and hops. The taste has notes of roasted malt, dark fruits, chocolate, spices, toffee, caramel and alcohol. The finish is bitter, dry and lightly rosted.

jacobwennbom (353) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2010 A bit flat, sweet and with notes of chocolate. That is how I would describe the taste of this x-mas brew. Not as much cascade as I had expected, which is not necissarily a bad thing.

Ughsmash (7182) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 4, 2007
Bottled, BB 03/07. Poured a really cool shade of clear garnet with a medium, well-retained cap of beige head. The aroma picked up sweet, lightly-spiced English toffee and caramel notes.. rather dusty overall, with very good dark fruit coming through with warmth. The flavor shows quite a bit of degredation.. sour oxidation notes had a rather vinous quality.. toffee and some spices at the core.. finished with some sour cardboard and dark fruit. Medium-bodied and sour on the palate, but you could tell that this was good deep down.
