UPDATED: JUN 28, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) Very dark brown, almost black with a rather small head and rather low carbonation. Top-fermented and very malty with a good bitterness and an underlying sweetness. Very full-bodied. Actually reminds me of a Belgian "Dubbel". 090603

veronika (410) - SWEDEN - NOV 22, 2003
Dark, looks like coco-cola. Has a great aroma frpom tofee, but the flavor is way too bitter. Especially the finish is hard to handle.

50 cl bottle from Swedish Systembolaget.
Fruity and malty a bit chocolate scent, some sourness and burnt rubber. Some hops in the back. Clear red brown color, tan head. Full mouthfeel. Lots of smoke and metal, coffee and burnt taste. Low hop bitterness, but astringent and sharp tannins puckering mouthfeel. High CO2 spritziness. Some spices and alcohol. Cascade like hoppy taste when it warms up. All in all not as good as I had expected it to be.

50 cl bottle thanks to Daniel (not on ratebeer). Sampled on December 23, 2012.
Clear brown color, big teal head. Sweet, malty, caramel, fudge scent. Sweet, buttery, bitter taste. Dry finish. Smooth mouthfeel, high dry bitterness.

deflagro (106) - Lund, SWEDEN - DEC 14, 2009
Bottle. Red-brownish, clear liquid with a medium-sized, off-white head. Aroma is a bit buttery and sugary with some fruitiness and a hint of yeast. Taste is richer, with a nice sweetness and some notes of spices, but unfortunately also butter. A decent but not very good Swedish christmas beer.
