Bottled (BB 03/2007)
Ruby red color, small but steady coffee head. Nice hoppy aroma (grapefruit, pineapple). Medium-bodied. Cracker malty, pine needles hoppy (Cascade?). Kind of American feeling here. Well balanced winterbier - not very Christmasy though.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark mahogany hued ale, subtley spiced with what tastes like cinnamon and orange zest, but also with good
dark malt character and the trademark earthy hoppiness and notes of cocoa. A little sweeter than your average Jamtlands.

Anna says: Red-brown. Aroma of light hops. Slight sour-fruits accompanies a restrained bitterness for a refined taste. A little sweetness and spices (with a hint of zest perhaps) but quite drinkable because they are not overdone. Unusually, Phil did not share this.

Deep burgundy brown with a light moka head. Nice sweet malt with intense butterscotch, almost too buttery. Nice sweet malt, with good nutty notes. Buttery and oily mouthfeel with warm alcohol. Rich and full. Thanks Joris!

Medium carbonation, fine mouthfeel - light dryness. Fine malty flavour, light chocolate, fine roasted malts. Good dryness. Some light cherries with some light hoppiness.
