Bottle @ home. Beautiful clear amber color, off white long lasting head with good lacing. Sweet and nutty aroma of caramel, cloves, herbal hops and a subtle smokiness. Taste is similar with a sweet fruity finish, moderate bitterness. For being a smoke beer it could have a bit more pronounced smokiness, but overall a nice beer.

Rökig, kryddig (kryddnejlikan vet vad den gör), härlig djup bärnstensfärg, härlig doft - vinternatt, pyrande brasa, häst och släde.

Bottle 33 cl from Systembolaget. Clear coca cola colour, thin beige head. A lot of smoke, leather, campfire, meat. Charcoal, slight bitterness, slight caramel. Medium body, light carbonation, smoky finish. Very nice smoke components.

Något syrlig och med än svag röksmak. Lite mer tryck i smaken hade varit på sin plats. Nja.

Bottle. Pretty good aroma, smoked turkey and sweet malt. Not a big fan of smokey beers but the sweetness and maltyness makes it bearable. Though as I prefer to keep the smokiness to my whiskeys this is not a favorite.

330ml bottle, pours clear dark amber with a medium sized off-white thin head. Aroma of smoked ham and caramel. Taste of charcuteries, maple syrup, caramel and orange peels. Light sweetness with a medium bitterness. Medium body, smooth texture and average carbonation. A good beer that is perfect with Nordic Christmas dishes.

Det är något visst med bryggerier som lyckas synkronisera sina produkter till perfektion. När flaska, etikett och öl skuttar hand i hand i hoppsasteg. En oslagbar kombination som inger förtroende. Precis sådan är Ölvisholts Jolabjor. Det lilla smolket i buteljen är dock att etiketten föreställer den fulaste nunan man kan rota fram ur den isländska mytologin och innehållet är lika kärvt, rökigt, inpyrt, jordigt och skräckinjagande. Men hur jävligt det än kan verka vid den första bekantskapen vill man ändå bara ha mer och mer och mer och mer...

HULK777 (373) - - NOV 18, 2013
Smoked ham and leather aroma. Taste of red berries and charcuteries, quite sweet and reminiscent of Serrano ham. Mostly sweet aftertaste. Probably perfect with Christmas ham, raisin bread, and mustard.

Deliciously smoky aroma. Heavy on the bitter, and a lingering aftertaste. That’s not a negative though.

Nische (758) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2013
330 ml bottle, rated from backlog. Brown and clear. Brown foamy head. Smoked aroma with some sweetness to it. Sweet taste with spices, caramel and of course some mild smokiness. Very good one.
