Ulla (17) - Halmstad, Nebraska, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2003
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.

Dark brown with clear reddish shine; slim white head. Dark sweetish chocolate in the nose, bit of dark fruit, even vinous. Taste of dark, but not bitter chocolate. There is a bit of malt sweetness in this beer. Character of dessert wine. Although little carbonation visually, very obvious in the mouthfeel. Rather refreshing beer! Medium bodied. Warming up gives coffee notes, but never bitter. Strange beer. I think that, poured from a dark container, one could fool quite a lot of people making them believe this is anything but beer. It certainly isn't bad.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2003 My first Swedish christmas beer and what a surprise!! I bought this beer because two different Swedish guys I talked to at Systembolaget told me that this beer was great. And they were so right!! Very nice creamy beige head though fast disappearing. Aroma is sweet, malt and flowers. Taste is sweet with tones of nut. Little alcoholic aftertaste. Very nice!!

Dark, looks like coco-cola. Has a great aroma frpom tofee, but the flavor is way too bitter. Especially the finish is hard to handle.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2004 RERATE: On tap at Plain Kitchen, Goteborg, Sweden. This is a good example of how a very good beer gets even better on tap. Great toffee and vanilla aroma with butterscotch. Malty butterscotchy flavor with vanilla notes, mixed with a nice hoppy bitterness. A favourite, thats for sure. Old rating: Amber color, with a nice creamy and lasting brownish head. Aroma is very good from toffee and caramel, maybe some citrus in it as well. Has a good palate and flavor starts in a rather mild way. Then it turns into quite a bitterness. A little roasted, maybe just a little too bitter. (8/3/6/4/15)

Bottled. Dark amber. A nutty, vanilla aroma; almost vinous. Soft and smooth palate. A hoppy, nutty flavour.

Bottled. Dark copper colour with a rich off-white head. Lots of caramel in the aroma. Rich hoppy flavour of roasted malts, vanilla and some licorice.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2003 Yeah, it has dark amber colour with hints of ruby. Beautiful big, long-lasting and creamy off-white head. Hoppy, fruity and slightly spicy aroma with hints of caramel and nuts. Smooth choclate flavour. Spices, coffee, caramel and some roasted notes. Finish is dominated by earthy hops, which is balanced with some malty creamy caramel notes. Great!

Ungstrup (29474) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2003
The aroma is sweet, nutty, and yeasty with notes of chocolate. The color is nut brown and it has a beutiful light brown head. The flavor is fantastic: it is sweet and nutty with notes of bitter chocolate and roasted malt. It finishes on a nice mixed sweet and bitter note with the bitterness lingering for a long time and turning woody dry at last. The bitterness comes more the malt than the hops. The body is a little weak for a beer of 6.5% ABV, but is OK. A great beer - thanks Per.

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 8, 2003
Ruby-dark amber color; generous head. Strange aroma, with some malt, hop, caramel, phenol, fudge. Not very strong body, but enough pleasant, with an extra light note of roasted barley. Dry ordinary palate, quite strong but not enough aromatic, with a touch of sourness. Not bad, but diminished by something chemical.
