Bottle shared at a tasting at Dagan’s place. Thanks omhper for this bottle! Clear dark amber-brown with a an off-white head. Aroma of malt, fruits, caramel and honey notes. Sweet malty flavor with fruits, caramel, a hint of alcohol and a slightly drier finish. Medium-bodied.

Svesse (6233) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2006
(Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Dark amber colour with ruby notes, brief off-white head. Fruity nose with notes of dried apricots, wort, caramel, cherries, chocolate, spices (cinnamon, ginger) and hops (grapefruit). Malty, fruity taste with notes of caramel, chocolate, toffee, wort, citrus (blood oranges, grapefruit) and a heavy spicy bitterness in the finish. Very well balanced. Lovely!

KnutAlbert (6216) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 28, 2008
Dark ruby beer, bottled. Rich and malty. Sweet, a little burned sugar. Some hoppy dryness, though it comes across as too sweet.

Rastacouere (6135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 5, 2004
Dark soil brown with ruby hints. Tiny off-white head. Big citrusy hop part in the aroma. Chocolate, meat, earth, orange and spice notes. Dominant citrus and earth taste component fail at hiding pleasant caramel and nutty complements. Fairly good balance: Very hoppy palate, but not agressively dry and it made it stand out a good bit from the similar hopped pilgrim. Very good even if it could be more complex. Surprisingly thin (this seems to be the case with most of the swedish beers I’ve had), but in this case once again, it seems fitting and nicely watery, again with this fine water jamtlands seems to be using. I haven’t had many ESA yet, but 2 of those were in the last week and both kicked major bottoms. Cheers Per!

jonas (5736) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2005 Rerate - previously sampled at the RBESP 2004, but it had a hard time to push through in that line-up, I was happy to be able to try it again
Red brown, tanned creamy head. Roasted notes, nut , chocolate, minerally strawberry. Slightly cardboardy bready malt. Good body, mellow mouthfeel. Milk chocolate and nut aftertaste. Vey nice harmonious brew.

ekstedt (5572) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2008 <i>Bottle (50 cl) from Systembolaget</i>. Deep copper color with a thick off-white, almost beige head. Very fruity, complex malt aroma with dried friuts, prunes and figs, and a little roasted note. All backed up by a steady hop character. Medium bodied, with a distinctive bitterness in the aftertaste. The relatively high abv does not reveal itself. An excellent christmas ale.
