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

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

Bottle "aged" 9 month, Flowery, some fudge, little burnt taste, dark with off-white head. Doesn’t seem too improve by ageing.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

A very good swedish X-mas beer. The beer has a fruity aroma, and so is the taste, but there is also a hint of spice, that makes the taste complete. The aftertaste is slighty sweet.
