Leini (602) - 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.

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.

Mad_Ferret (553) - SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2011
Bottle. Clear chestnut red with a medium crackling beige head that leaves some minor lacings. The first whiff of the same old buttery toffee as always in Jämtlands, then comes a vinous tobacco spicy fruity aroma with some chocolate. Taste is extremely malty and a bit rough with burnt earthy tobacco notes and dark fruit. Vinous. Chocolate in the aftertaste with peppery herbs. Feels much stronger than it is and it stings the tongue a bit. Full bodied with a soft but tickling carbonation. A well made but quite rough malt bomb.

Ljunkan (530) - SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2009 Pours a dark red/brown color in my Jämtlands glass. It has a nice foamy head. A bit of lacing. Aroma is interesting of caramel, very malty, some toffee notes along with a typical fruitiness. Flavour is malty, caramely (very caramely actually) with a good bitterness. Notes of citrus, some aromatic hops, toffee and dried fruits, it also got a slightly burnt note with a bit of nuttiness. Overall very balanced and tasty. There’s also some special Jämtland note, which I tend too find in moast of there beer. Here it makes it very well with the other flavours, so nothing negative about that. Mouthfeel is quite smooth and filling with a certain "bite" in it. A very drinkable and nice Christmas beer, I’m glad I finally tried it.

blafa (511) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 1, 2011
Bottle from Systembolaget, at home. December, 2011.
Pours dark brown with a clear red hue and a off white creamy head. Slightly sweet, nutty aroma with notes of roasted malt, sweet bread, caramel, and butter. Full taste and body with notes of dried fruit, figs and plums. Some spicy malt, bread and warming alcohol towards the end.

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.

lgklotet (432) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 4, 2006
Bottle. Deep amber/red. Malty throughout with hints of hops. Lacking in some way.. Slightly disappointed, but I find Jämtlands to be slightly hyped..

Dark, looks like coco-cola. Has a great aroma frpom tofee, but the flavor is way too bitter. Especially the finish is hard to handle.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2006
Aroma: nice, fruity with hints of red apples, cloudberry, cinnamon, several different malts. Fruity, fresh hops accompany the malts superbly. Burnt sugar, coconut (vaguely), liquorice, cream & almonds.
Appearance: pale beige head that fizzes away in a matter of seconds, leaving as suspect looking island in the middle. Rusty red brown, clear colour.
Flavour: initial dry spicyness - lovely. Apparent hop bitterness w/ sourish-sweet malt, caramel/hop aftertaste. Overall very balanced, fruity and refreshing. Noticable alcohol.
Palate: really nice considering the high co2. Full-bodied, smooth yet crisp.
