mikkos (298) - FINLAND - DEC 25, 2014
Cola colored beer with a small head. Aroma is quite nice dark malts, coffee, roast, spices. Taste is a bit weird, not really on par with aroma. A bit salty, some malts, light bitterness. Somewhat thin. Weird stuff with the taste, but overall not bad. Not very christmassy though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

LagGyver (5) - FINLAND - DEC 20, 2014 does not count
Tumman punainen/ruskea. Sopivan lievästi kitkerä, mutta jollain tavalla hieman lattea olut. Saatan ostaa uudelleen.

Dermi (769) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 2, 2014
50 cl, bottled. Pours cloudy red with a white head. Aroma: Malt, grains, soy sauce. Taste: Medium sweet, with some strong soy flavours. Quite salty and mildly acidic. Some bitterness, too. Quite interesting. Malty flavours. Old potatoes. Palate: Light-medium body. Ok, not really my thing.

Toomio (337) - Joensuu, FINLAND - JAN 25, 2014
Jouluolueksi ei yhtään jouluinen. Kohtuullinen aromi. Hiukan keskivertoa parempi. Hyvin keskitason kalja.

Migmar (252) - Espoo, FINLAND - DEC 24, 2013
Dark red, rather big head. Roasty, bready, caramelish, somewhat fruity as well. Medium sweetness, light bitterness. A bit light but enjoyable during Christmas Eve dinner.

Marstonlad (576) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 15, 2013
A deep color of ruby red with a little white head. Aroma is malty, slightly toasty, with notes of caramel and raisin. Taste is light sweet and a bit roasty with a good malty character, the taste does not end prematurely. Caramel and some biscuit and bread in the flavours. Light to medium bodied, slick palate, soft mouthfeel. Mild but good Christmas beer from Malmgård.

Zarkam (532) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 11, 2013
500ml bottle, dark reddish brown colour, small frothy off-white head, average lacing. Roasty aroma of caramel, dried plum, nuts, cereal and herbal hops. Taste is initially balanced bittersweet and turns into a moderately bitter somewhat burnt finish. Medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. Not bad aside for the texture, not the best from them but more enjoyable than the christmas stuff from the bigger breweries here.
