Moz (613) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2005
Bottle, Dark brown. Aroma of raisins, honey and the usual "smell of Jämtland". Sweet taste, much of everything, some taste of liquorice in the aftertaste.

Eriked (14) - STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2007
This is almost a meal in a glass. Full of flowers in the nose and a complex palate. Fullbodied with a sweet and bitter ending.

A very good swedish X-mas beer. The beer has a fruity aroma, and so is the taste, but there is also a hint of spice, that makes the taste complete. The aftertaste is slighty sweet.

One of my Christmas favourites. Deep dark brown-red colour with a nice frothy off-white head. Deep toasty and roasty malt flavours with dark fruity and chocolatey notes with earthy english hops. Medium bittersweet with a lasting finish. A great companion to the Christmas foods.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2004 Bottled: Dark ruby. High carbonation. Very nice foam. It has a very pleasant - and christmaslike - aroma. Notes of spices and some yeast. Nice. Flavour is spicy, smoothe, well-balanced and has strong notes of coffee. Very nice bitterness in the end. One of the best Scandinavian christmasbrews, I've tasted.

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!

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - JUL 4, 2004
Brilliant red-amber coloured beer with a small head. Light roasted spicy, christmasy, aroma. The taste is a complex mixture of light sweetness, spice, roasted malt and perfume. Dry roasted finish. A very nice beer.

50 cl bottle courtesy of Marsiblursi. It pours a ruddy chestnut with a two finger thick tan head that is very fluffy, clingy and lasting. Has a muted hop aroma along with sweet malts, some yeast, light caramel and a lot of baking bread. <P> Has a lot of fruity esters in the fore then gets very light toasty with a medium hop presence, caramel and caramelized bread notes through the middle and into the finish. This is pretty damn good. It has a definite English feel to it and a dry finish that gets ever so slightly spicy. This is a damn nice beer. The flavor isn’t exactly amazing, but the overall feel of the beer is satisfying, making it an enjoyable quaff.
