UPDATED: DEC 17, 2004 First a warning, this one is stronger than what one would expect. This is genuine christmas with strong elements of caramel, fruit, chocolate and not least malt.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottled) Dark reddish brown color with small head. Aromatic and flowery hopped, even wineous aroma. Flowery, quite hoppy, woody and reasonably malty flavor with some spiciness. Quite smooth but bitter, medium-bodied, soft-carbonated palate. A very nice, hoppy and tasty ale. Like Postiljon with added spiciness for christmas.

Dark amber color, litlle light brown head. Rich aroma: sweetness and spicyness coming from hops. Spicy and chocolate flavor with sweet start, ending is somehow alcoholic with very dry aftertaste. Medium to full body, nice brew.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Spicy and strong aroma of cloves, cinnamon, cardemom and orange. Flavour starts with an exploding spice and herb combination. Then moves over to a mild and dry middle and a deliciously soft finish. The aftertaste keeps on for long with a combination of citric fruits and dry, roasted cocoa and coffee notes. The palate is overwhelming and stabile. A very delicious brew!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A very good swedish X-mas beer. The beer has a fruity aroma, and so is the taste, but there is also a hint of spice, that makes the taste complete. The aftertaste is slighty sweet.
