SamTheBarrel (777) - 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.

Leini (1807) - SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2013
500ml bottle. Dark brown with some yellow tones. White foamy crown with a dash of brown. Sweet and fruity flavor with elements of wort bread, citrus and spices. Medium, bitter aftertaste with orange peel and burnt bread. Medium carbonation with small, sparkling bubbles. Medium body. Nice x-mas brew from Jämtlands.

ElDesmadre (3078) - Mikołów, POLAND - JAN 10, 2013
Bottle traded with Cunningham. Lots of caramel and chocolate in the aroma, with dried fruit and earthy hops thrown in. Full, dark, chocolatey, malty body. Light sweetish with a dryish finish and a rather strong, earthy bitterness plus some roasted notes. This brewery manages to brew English beers that taste more English than those from England. Very nice!

stefannilssons (1580) - SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2012
Doften påminner om doft och smak från lageröl fast någo kraftigare, dock vet jag inte varifrån den kommer ifrån. Smaken påminner även den om lageröl med maltiga inslag och en svag syra. Kroppen är okej men ölen upplever jag som obalanserad.

Lilja (2839) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2012
UPDATED: APR 15, 2013 En frisk och lagom söt julöl. Smak och doft av malt, torkad frukt, lätt kolsyrad och besk. Välbalanserad. Har provat denna öl sedan 2006, står sig gott.

rarbring (2262) - Linköping, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2012
Aroma: The smell has a mixture of sweet, honey, tones and fruit, like grapefruit, with a malty, grass-like, stamina.
Appearance: This beer pours with a light tan compact foam that leaves some lace. It is very dark with a ruby red tone.
Taste: The taste is very pleasantly balanced, leaving a good long bitterness. The sweetness reminds you of dried dates and figs, acid from citric fruits like Seville oranges.
Palate: A good refreshing carbonation makes the beer high-scoring in all aspects.
Overall: Serving type: bottle
Note: bottle Reviewed 2010-01-01.

A bit dark and quiet tasteful dinner time beer but as a stand alone christmas beer I wouldn’t choose it
