NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 29, 2006
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.

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!!

Eructoblaster (2999) - 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!

Bottle "aged" 9 month, Flowery, some fudge, little burnt taste, dark with off-white head. Doesn’t seem too improve by ageing.

Svesse (6080) - 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!
