djoeye (3233) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2014
Good fawn top with copper body, clear. Thick fawn lacing. Scents of dark dried fruits, juicy roasted malts, spices, toffee, berry peels. Tongue gets dark roasted malts, juicy hops, spicy resin, citric peels, raisin, sour fruits, cocoa, berries. Ok body, soft carbonation, brown-cocoa’ish finish. Interesting and flexible beer, for solid dishes of meat, or as an evening sipper. This is a good beer for christmas eves, new year eves and so on. Good brew [50cl brown bottle, abv6.5%, B@Systembolaget Kiruna, 3€, #145, BB20/09/15, T@höme]

Cool_Bond (2263) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - DEC 8, 2013
The aroma of malt and oats. Sweet taste of fruit almost a little floral flavor too. Decent aftertaste with some bitterness. One of the better English strong ale I had drunk. But it was not as impressive as I thought it would be. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Steinus (4) - - DEC 6, 2013 does not count
Dark wooden colour. Yellow lasting head. Smells of citrus, predominantly of grapefruit. Nothing strong. Tastes bitterly of citrus and chocolate. A little heavy on its own. Didn’t settle properly in my stomach if you get me. I expect it to be better alongside food. I still enjoyed it and would recommend it.

SamTheBarrel (770) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - NOV 17, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2014 500ml bottle, pours opaque dark mahogany with a small tan head. Aroma and taste of roasted malt, prunes, caramel and muscovado. Light sweetness and medium bitterness. Medium body, smooth texture and average carbonation. Less sweet and better balanced than most Swedish Christmas beers, low on spices however. A pleasant tasty beer overall.
