LoFi (1592) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 2, 2011
Bottle. Dark copper with a creamy light brown head that leaves some lacing. Aroma: malty and fruity, but which fruit? Taste. roasted malt, fruit, some chocolate, caramel, some orange and grapefruit, hints of licorice and spices, medium bitter with some acidity. Medium-bodied with a carbonation that is close to fizzy. Pretty nice winter ale.

One of my Christmas favourites. Deep dark brown-red colour with a nice frothy off-white head. Deep toasty and roasty malt flavours with dark fruity and chocolatey notes with earthy english hops. Medium bittersweet with a lasting finish. A great companion to the Christmas foods.

Koyo (251) - SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2010
Bottle from Systembolaget. Aroma is a bit spicy, slight hints of christmas spices. Appearance is red and brown with a nice foam. Taste is mostly bitter with some spices, its not very ’christmasy’ but among its competitors this year its one of the better.

anchr (18) - Trondheim, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2010
Great malty character. Somewhat sweet, bready, spicy, and with a large body and decent light brown head - all of which fits the Christmas beer style. Though, can be slightly overpowering due to its full-bodied sweetness: should be drunk to food, not as a stand-alone. Some bitterness that lingers on, and a reminiscence of strong Scottish ale. Nice dark brownish-red color. Good to great-ish, but far from extreme.
