UPDATED: JAN 29, 2008 Bottle. Dark red-brown color with a fluffy but mostly diminishing pale brown head. Aroma of dark fruit, spices, toffee, caramel and hops. The taste has notes of roasted malt, dark fruits, chocolate, spices, toffee, caramel and alcohol. The finish is bitter, dry and lightly rosted.

jacobwennbom (352) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2010 A bit flat, sweet and with notes of chocolate. That is how I would describe the taste of this x-mas brew. Not as much cascade as I had expected, which is not necissarily a bad thing.

Ughsmash (7092) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 4, 2007
Bottled, BB 03/07. Poured a really cool shade of clear garnet with a medium, well-retained cap of beige head. The aroma picked up sweet, lightly-spiced English toffee and caramel notes.. rather dusty overall, with very good dark fruit coming through with warmth. The flavor shows quite a bit of degredation.. sour oxidation notes had a rather vinous quality.. toffee and some spices at the core.. finished with some sour cardboard and dark fruit. Medium-bodied and sour on the palate, but you could tell that this was good deep down.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2007
Bottle. Hazy brown colour with a nice foamy head. Aroma of spices, caramel, malt and anis. Flavour of spices such as anis, cinnamon and burned caramel.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2007
Sweet aroma but also some salty meat among the chocolate. Flavour seems and odd clash of sweet malts and almost sour tasting hops(?). Not bad but feels schizo.

Grovlam (4152) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2007
Bottle. Average creamy off-white head that mostly diminished. Light brown color with a clear flat body. Aroma of caramel, grain, orange peel, hint of chocolate and Christmas spice, roasted malt, floral, brown sugar. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and a light alcoholic texture. Moderated sweet flavor with light bitter notes. Light bitter finish. Ok Christmas beer. 08-07-2007

yespr (30691) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2007
From 50 cL bottle. Pours hazy light brown with chalk white lacing head. Malty sweet and orange fruity aroma. Flavour is malty, slight smoked with a light orange note before the finish. Dry bitter finish.

Maria (10125) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 1, 2007
Vintage 2006. Dark amber with a red hue and a nice creamy head. The aroma is hoppy and spicy with notes of malt. The flavour has nice hoppy notes and a good bitterness, notes of fruit, roasted malt and caramel. Sadly also a bit of alcohol, that brings the flavour a slightly out of balance, and makes it a bit edgy and not as harmonic as the other lovely Jämtland beers. But it’s quite nice anyhow. 1837

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 23, 2007
Bottle courtesy of omhper. Pours brown with a rocky white head. Smells of soap, perfume, citrus, some sweet malt. Taste is of raisins, spices, pepper and some tea like hints. Lots of wintery flavors and aromas packed into this one. Very nice!
