2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light hazy nut-brown colored beer with medium creamy beige head. Nice nutty aroma with touches of roasted and coffee flavoured caramels. In the nose also a touch of hops and herbs. The body of this beer is a bit thin. It has touches of malts a light roasted malts with a neutal nuttyness. In the end you have hints of dry caramel and the bitterness of the hops.
Thanks Joris for this beer.

Bottled. Dark red/brown in colour, rich creamy beige head, lacings. The aroma is malty and sweet. Caramel and something else as well, can’t say what. The flavour is a mixture of malt and caramel. There is a sweet aftertaste. Nice.

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.

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