Bottle. Let me start by saying that I’m not a big fan of spiced beers. Nonetheless this beer impressed me. It starts of with a tan head with good retention laying on top of a dark brown beer with a red hue. Nose is subtly spicy and a little sour and reminds me of worcestershire sauce. The flavor begins mildly roasted bitter going into fruitiness ending in a long and dry finish. A beer that is wonderfully balanced between an almost stout like roastiness and subtle spicing. Soft carbonation and easy mouth feel makes this an easy drinking experience. Well done.

This one looks like it tastes. Wonderfully warming with some raisins, a bit of wood, some leaves and chocolate. Deep in its taste, deep in its aromas and just really well balanced. Wonderful one.

McTapps (3002) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle from Cunningham - many thanks, Henrik! The beer pours out in a deep dark amber-brown colour with steady low head and medium body. Nice aroma of barley and herbs. Taste of malt, barley, bread, nuts, herbs and spices. Aromatic finish with cinnamon woods hints. Nice one.

Backlog. Bottle from systembolaget. A pretty average winter-seasonal. Not really my cup of tea.

jmgreenuk (3580) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 4, 2014
Cask at the Bishops Arms (Gustav Adolfs Torg) Malmo. Poured a clear dark brown with a bubbly white head. The aroma is weak malt light red berry fruit. The flavour is weak bitter with a watery light hop spice palate. Light bodied with soft carbonation. No sweetness at all in the palate and lacks flavour & body. Way too light for a winter ale.

Flaska. Mörkbrun med lätt smutsvitt skum. Dofter av julkryddor, mörk choklad, citrus och omogna äpplen. Trevlig surhet i smakbakgrunden. Innan dess apelsin, citron, grapefrukt, mörk choklad, torkad frukt och utspätt kaffe. Fin beska. Medelsötma.

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
