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.

A bit dark and quiet tasteful dinner time beer but as a stand alone christmas beer I wouldn’t choose it

Bananamaniac (35) - Kristinehamn, SWEDEN - JUN 25, 2008
One of the very best beers from Jämtlands together with the Postiljon ESB. Rich flavours of different nuts, a nice hint of raisins and som liquorice too! Have to buy som more of these next christmas, only got to lay my hands on one..

Bullrup (20) - SWEDEN - FEB 11, 2006
Bottle 2005 Edition. Swedish julöl that usually gets the top score among swedish julöl. One of the best editions in the last years. Pours dark brown with foamy head. A bit sweet, but roasted and hoppy. A little taste of licorice. Goes well with smorgasbord food.

anchr (18) - Trondheim, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2010
Great malty character. Somewhat sweet, bready, spicy, and with a large body and decent light brown head - all of which fits the Christmas beer style. Though, can be slightly overpowering due to its full-bodied sweetness: should be drunk to food, not as a stand-alone. Some bitterness that lingers on, and a reminiscence of strong Scottish ale. Nice dark brownish-red color. Good to great-ish, but far from extreme.

Pours nice and dark. Looks very christmasey. Lots of herbs and spices. Syrup, malts, dark fruits, yeast and bitter flowers. Will do good on the christmas table. could do with a higher alcohol rate.

Ulla (17) - Halmstad, Nebraska, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2003
This is almost a meal in a glass. Full of flowers in the nose and a complex palate. Fullbodied with a sweet and bitter ending.

Ch1mpy (15) - Ystad, SWEDEN - DEC 4, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2004 First a warning, this one is stronger than what one would expect. This is genuine christmas with strong elements of caramel, fruit, chocolate and not least malt.
