Lots of malt, dar dried fruit, raisins. Very full mout feel. Enoug bitternett to balance it. Another winner from Jämtland - how I’d love to have regular access to their beers...

UPDATED: APR 15, 2008 Bottled:
Reddish brown with a dense head. Malt and marshmallow aroma . Sweet and malty flavour with notes of toffee and chocolate. The hops show up late and brings a slight roastiness as companion. Very Jämtland.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours brown with off-white head. Aroma was a bit weird on this one, with some dill maybe? Definitely a spiciness I wasn’t really into. The taste is moderately malty with a bit of bitterness peeking through. Gets a bit roastier when it warms up.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a clear copper color with a thin off-white head. The aroma was odd with herbal and spicy notes. A hint of smoke also poked out. Short caramel malt flavor to start with a dry spicy finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by MaxxDaddy. Light candy shell aroma, surprisingly like an easter egg candy. A bit of nutty hops. Flavor is fairly light, more of that easter thing, light spices/oregano and good hops. Better as it warms. Not too shabby.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Systembolaget.
Typical Jämtlands character in this seasonal offering - aroma of spice, seville oranges, chocolate and bitter roast.
Noticeably sweeter than the year-round brews. Lots of liquorice and an annoying shampoo flavour that ruins the overall effect for me. Went well with a sweet cheddar cheese.
