Palme (3591) - 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

olsvammel (3578) - 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.

Pyrmir (3544) - 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.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 23, 2004
Dark amber color, litlle light brown head. Rich aroma: sweetness and spicyness coming from hops. Spicy and chocolate flavor with sweet start, ending is somehow alcoholic with very dry aftertaste. Medium to full body, nice brew.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2003 Yeah, it has dark amber colour with hints of ruby. Beautiful big, long-lasting and creamy off-white head. Hoppy, fruity and slightly spicy aroma with hints of caramel and nuts. Smooth choclate flavour. Spices, coffee, caramel and some roasted notes. Finish is dominated by earthy hops, which is balanced with some malty creamy caramel notes. Great!

Eructoblaster (3119) - 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!

_angst_ (3058) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2011
2x 500 ml bottles courtesy of Roland. 2010 and 2011 vintage. Consumed on December 26. --- 2011: Pours amber with a small off-white head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace on the glass. Smell is subtle with some caramel, toffee and sweet fruits. Taste is sweet and slightly bitter with toffee, caramel, figs, dates and some cloves. Finish is slightly sweet and slightly bitter. 7,3,7,3,15. --- 2010: Looks the same as this years vintage. Smell is much more developed with toffee, caramel and a chocolate character that I can’t find in the newer vintage. Taste is toffee and cocoa with hints of oxidation. There’s also some dates, caramel but I can’t find the cloves I found in the 2011. Finish is sweet with some chocolate fudge. 8,3,6,3,15. --- Quite interesting that there was such a prominent difference.

Defreni (2649) - Husum, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2008
Flaske. mørkebrun øl med et tydeligt duftindtryk af alkohol og nødder. Fin humlebitterhed efter en let brændt øl der ikke er så julet igen, hvilket er meget lækkert.
