OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 4, 2004
Medium dark ruby red with a medium size shortish lasting medium beige head. Festive, treacley malty with hint of bootpolish butterscotch and alcohol. Mild warming gentle caressing body. Medium roasted malt bitter, and low sweetness some spcies and jelly baby perfume. Wornderful comples

MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2004
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!

Minamizawa (44) - DENMARK - APR 13, 2004
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.

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.

JorisPPattyn (8032) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 26, 2003
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.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2003
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)
