Juusto (37) - - FEB 16, 2013
0,33l bottle close to its "best before date". Reddish brown. Some head visible for a while. Caramel and malty with lightly bitter aftertaste. Not too aggressive. Something is missing, but still pretty good bulk from Hartwall.

nihtila (1159) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 25, 2015
5.12.2013. Hyvin tumman punainen. Tuoksussa karamellimaltaiden lisäksi hieman paahteisuutta. Maussa makea maltaisuus, hieman humalaa ja pikkaisen paahteisuutta. Lappariksi ihan jees. Jotenkin hieman tunkkainen.

Marduk (3330) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 2, 2015
350ml bottle. Clear copper color. Medium size, beige head, stays. Metallic, malty, fizzy aroma. Malty, minerals, faint hazelnut? in taste. Sourish malty aftertaste. Fizzy. Never again!

thirstyrabbit (1285) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle. Light copper body, small head. Aroma has weak caramel and stale bread. Bland caramelly taste with some iron and zinc bucket water. So industrial. Somewhat drinkable (when you are desperate) but incredibly bland in every aspect. Some hops in the finish but generally no enjoyment found. Don’t ruin your Christmas with this.

RexTalionis (2862) - FINLAND - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle. Clear amber, frothy tan head. Sweet malts, grainy and hard toffee notes in aroma. Toffee, grainy and some bitter notes in taste. Metallic vibes as well. Sweetish aftertaste. Clean, easy drinking. Hints of burnt bead in the end. Better than expected.

gyllenbock (5306) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle from a local food store in Pello, Finland. Bought in September 2014. Light amber with a white head. Sweetish with some dried fruit, caramel and syrup. Drinkable but with a low bitterness and thin mouthfeel.

SirLimpsalot (2466) - SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2014
@ Gyllenbock 14-12-13: mycket diskret doft. Smaken är sötmaltig, sirap och små toner av nötter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

Senka (810) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 10, 2014
33cl bottle. Fresh brew. Metallic and watery malty beverage with a hint of caramel. I do not want to see a brew like that on my xmas table. Expected much more, but magic did not hapen.

Finnish Christmas beer. Amber. Caramel, I planned not to say nuts, but there they are. A bit of syrup, but rather thin body. Easy.

TyggaBrown (430) - NORWAY - MAR 31, 2014
Finnish christmas beer, reminds me of poor norwegian industrial christmas beer. Not very tasty, the sweetness tastes artificial, and the bitterness feels thin and not very complex. Quite refreshing, but in general poor.

MichaelAwesome (5014) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 6, 2014
Bottle shared with McTapps. Nuts with some caramel and nalt. Thin one with low carbo and a metalluc aftertaste. Drinkable, but still below average.
