Koyo (251) - SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2010
Bottle from Systembolaget. Aroma is a bit spicy, slight hints of christmas spices. Appearance is red and brown with a nice foam. Taste is mostly bitter with some spices, its not very ’christmasy’ but among its competitors this year its one of the better.

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...

LarsHolmer (112) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 17, 2003
The best Swedish Christmas Ale 2002 according to all (3) tastings I had in december: A fullbodied ale with a perfect balance between the sweetness and the bitterness.But in my opinion not a beer for the Swedish Smorgosbord, this ale is best enjoyed as an apertif or a digestif.

RobertGBG (109) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 3, 2006
Bottle "aged" 9 month, Flowery, some fudge, little burnt taste, dark with off-white head. Doesn’t seem too improve by ageing.

deflagro (106) - Lund, SWEDEN - DEC 14, 2009
Bottle. Red-brownish, clear liquid with a medium-sized, off-white head. Aroma is a bit buttery and sugary with some fruitiness and a hint of yeast. Taste is richer, with a nice sweetness and some notes of spices, but unfortunately also butter. A decent but not very good Swedish christmas beer.

MrBeachtwig (54) - Sandared, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2009
50cl bottle. Wonderful darkred colour with big beige head. Aroma is sweet and a bit spicy. Taste is malty with some lacorice and nuts. Taste is quite long with a nice bittness I really enjoy. Perfect for Christmas.
