Palme (2993) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 3, 2012
0.5l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew & friends. Pours a clear deep ruby-brown body with a small bubbly quite sidesticking head. It’s a bit dusty with cardboard, dark malts, wort and a hint of chocolate. It’s average - quite comfortable carbonated and has a nice oily texture. Tastes alright, light cocoa powder, cold coffee, some licorice-like tones, a mild bitterness all the way. Ends light mouthdrying with a hint of chocolate and some acidity. Nice enough. 13.04.2012

Pours dark brown/red. Caramellish with roasted hints. Some chocolate and hints of fruits. Sour. Nutmeg and crispbread. Peppery with rubber. Sour flavour, toffeeish malt. Citric peels and pepper in the aftertaste. Hints of liquorice. Grape and orange hoppyness. Medium body.

Eructoblaster (2853) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2004
On tap at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Dark brown body with a thin beige head. Superb sweet and fruity aroma with notes of brown sugar and blackberries. Robust malty taste that hides the alcohol pretty well. Its bitter and roasty finish leaves a pleasant warming effect. God Jul!

Pyrmir (2761) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 17, 2013
500 ml bottle, rated from backlog. Dark ruby with tan head. Aroma is sweet, honey, fruit, grass and malt. Taste is well balanced with a bit of dried fruit, citrus and sweet malt.

Frovigalning (2694) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2009
It poured a very dark, clear, red liquid with a large beige foam that left a nice lacing. Weak smell of bread and spices. A hint of ginger, but it was hard to pinpoint the different spices as they where quite subtile. My guess is it was a mix of dried orange peels, ginger and cloves. Fairly smooth mouthfeel with a medium body. Taste of caramell, dark bread and spices. Once again I’m leaning towards cloves and ginger. Not a bad beer but it gets a bit lost in the competition at the moment.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2003 My first Swedish christmas beer and what a surprise!! I bought this beer because two different Swedish guys I talked to at Systembolaget told me that this beer was great. And they were so right!! Very nice creamy beige head though fast disappearing. Aroma is sweet, malt and flowers. Taste is sweet with tones of nut. Little alcoholic aftertaste. Very nice!!

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - DEC 8, 2007
50cl bottle from Systembolaget. Transparent, dark brown with a medium-thin beige head. Roasty chocolate aroma is a little sweet and has some hops thrown in as well. The flavor is pretty roasty too, with plenty of sweet chocolate and a distinct hoppiness and bitter finish. Almost stoutish in the roast department. Medium body with lots of carbonation, finished pretty clean. I love the hops in Jämtlands beers, and the Christmas brew blends that perfectly into a nice rich, roasty ale.
