Anna says: Red-brown. Aroma of light hops. Slight sour-fruits accompanies a restrained bitterness for a refined taste. A little sweetness and spices (with a hint of zest perhaps) but quite drinkable because they are not overdone. Unusually, Phil did not share this.

Defreni (2603) - Husum, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2008
Flaske. mørkebrun øl med et tydeligt duftindtryk af alkohol og nødder. Fin humlebitterhed efter en let brændt øl der ikke er så julet igen, hvilket er meget lækkert.

thewolf (11176) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2008
Bottle, bought at Systembolaget, Malmö. Thank you, myrup. Pours great mahogany with a small, frothy/creamy, off-white head. Mild aroma, some roasted malts, a little fruitiness and general sweetness. Medium carbonation, fine mouthfeel - light dryness. Fine malty flavour, light chocolate, fine roasted malts. Good dryness. Some light cherries with some light hoppiness. Really nice and very drinkable.

OleR (4801) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 13, 2008
500 ml bottle. Big coarse, lightly tanned head. Lasting with fine lacework. Brilliant dark ruby-brown body. Inviting malty and fruity aroma. Suggestions of mild spices and chocolate. Chocolate-ish malt flavor, fruits and spices and a nice rounded sweetness, balanced by a gentle hopbitterness. Medium body. Feels soft and smooth in the mouth. Malty, mild bitter ending. I like this a lot.

Gusgus (232) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - DEC 12, 2008
Bottle 081129. This one might be a bit off, but most likely its just not a good batch. Yeasty and sourish aroma and flavor. Not much aromatics otherwise. I seem to get a lot of badly made Jämtland beer these days...
