3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Tumman punainen/ruskea. Sopivan lievästi kitkerä, mutta jollain tavalla hieman lattea olut. Saatan ostaa uudelleen.

Jouluolueksi ei yhtään jouluinen. Kohtuullinen aromi. Hiukan keskivertoa parempi. Hyvin keskitason kalja.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
