3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Finally I got down to rate this. Have had it every year and enjoyed it. A rich head and the house aroma we all love is there. Very good balance of malts and hops. Fullbodied and moreish.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Spicy and strong aroma of cloves, cinnamon, cardemom and orange. Flavour starts with an exploding spice and herb combination. Then moves over to a mild and dry middle and a deliciously soft finish. The aftertaste keeps on for long with a combination of citric fruits and dry, roasted cocoa and coffee notes. The palate is overwhelming and stabile. A very delicious brew!

Dark redbrown with pretty good beige head.
Malty aroma with tones of coffee and roasted malt. A bit hoppy.
Caramel flavour with fruity tones. Quite low bitterness for being a Jämtlands beer

Välkomponerad smakbild med snyggt utplacerade balanspunkter. Kraftfull samtidigt som den är mild och varlig. Jämtlands bryggeri vet vad kvalitet innebär.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear dark brown with a big lacy off-white head. Aroma is a pleasant and uncomplicated mix of chocolate, caramel and spicy German hops. Flavour is suprisingly earthy, with a light sweetness and some roast chocolate and nutty flavours, the hops taste a little green and grassy. From memory, it didn’t taste too different from their tiotaggare, which is by no means a bad thing. Overall its very satisfying and a great beer, perfect for Christmas.
