Staffan47 (880) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 19, 2013
Real ale på OT. Doften är sig lik. Julkryddor med dominans av nejlika. Smaken är behaglig och kryddningen håller sig lagom i bakgrunden. Betydligt trevligate än den förvisso också bra flaskvarianten. Lägre kolsyra jämfört med flarran. Riktigt bra julöl

esox (1098) - Oulu, FINLAND - DEC 17, 2013
Bottled. Dark, reddish brown colour. Thin head, some lace. Aroma darkly toasted malts, dark crystal malts, a hint of bitter chocolate, slightly sour berry notes. Balanced spiciness possibly includes cloves and fennel seeds. Medium sweet flavor, nice and round maltiness. Rather complex finish gets quite dry, and it has layers of dark prunes, slightly tangy spices and light sourness and some herbal bitterness. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Nice beer,not overly spicy.

Draught @ Pikkulintu
Nice, smoky aroma with malty tones and berries. Also some odd sulphur tones. Flavour has smoked wood, malty tones, some berries and ashy tones. Confusing; smoky tones are nice but malty ones are not. Also some peaty tones, licorice and hebal notes occur at the end of the glass.

Ernest (6319) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 4, 2013
Draft at Man in the Moon, Stockholm. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is cloudy medium amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (cookie, toasted grain, caramel), with notes of coriander, candy sugar, orange peel, dried mango. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, creamy texture, lively/soft carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Spicy and kinda candyish, but well-balanced and pleasant (and fitting for a winter brew).
