2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2006 First rating.
Bottle on January 7, 2006.
Dark color, not much at all in scent and flavor, just a boring beer that should not be called a Christmas beer per my definition. Had they called it another type of beer I might have rated it higher, but as a Christmas ber it’s just plain boring and not worth buying.
(50 cl bottle from Swedish Systembolaget)
Weak malty scent, some German malts. Boiled vegetables. Clear dark red to brown color, tan head. Buttery toffee taste, some metal. Thin mouthfeel. Low bitterness.

A deep red beer with a nice brown head. The aroma is sweet malty combined with notes of berries and nuts. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of roasted malt and light notes of berries, leading to a dry end. The body is thin inspite of the 5.8% ABV.

Ruby red, small creamy tan head. Roasted, a bit papery and metallic, malty aroma. Chocolaty malty flavor, slightly bitterish aftertaste. Propably the best Mariestad-brew so far.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Very dark, almost black with a reddish hue and a handsome, tall head. Full-bodied and dry with a malty, lightly burned touch. This almost resembles a dry, Scotch Ale. Heck, they make nice Christmas beers in Sweden. 210302
