blafa (511) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 8, 2011
Bottle from systembolaget, Christmas beer tasting. Helsingborg, November 2011.
Sweet caramel aroma with a spicy, slightly smoky vibe. Spices, leather, rope, tar, salt and peat smoke together with sweet caramel notes. The taste and body is smooth with a light refined smokiness, caramel flavours and some leather. Long finish.

Insikter kommer sällan på flaska. Desto roligare då när de faktiskt gör det. Jólabjór är ett öl som borde ingå i högskoleprovet, för har man inte upplevt smaken kan man omöjligen vara en fullfjädrad samhällsmedborgare.

NordicV (1293) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2011
Hasselnötsfärgad öl med smutsvitt lätt skum. Doft av frukt, malt, lite kryddor och en lätt, lätt rökt ton. Den rökta tonen är något starkare i smaken men tar absolut inte över. Maltig, torkad frukt, lite körsbär. Lättdrucken.

Cunningham (5230) - Halden, NORWAY - NOV 17, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2012 Bottle. Dark amber colour with a beige head. Christmas cookie aroma! Complex flavour with a lot of spices, fruity, caramel, light smoked barley, light hops. Not to far away from Nøgne Ø Underlig Jul.

BeerSkull (1359) - SWEDEN - NOV 8, 2011
Soft and rich aroma with lots of flavors such as orange, lemon, yeast, sweet malt, spices and smoke. The taste is round with soft tangy and fruity notes, hints of caramel and a slight smokiness. The smooth taste is impressive. This is a great beer!

Vignale (2371) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2011
Fin maltkropp, väl avvägd rökton, bra nejlikadominerad julkryddning, håller ihop väl. Kanske ändå lite för mycket av allt. Hade gärna druckit den utan julkryddor. Svår att kombinera med med eftersom den har så mycket egen karaktär och smak. Fin smuttaröl med andra ord och en lättdrucken sådan.

fiulijn (15990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2011
Dark color, between dark amber and brown; small sized head. It has a mild aroma of caramel, paper and bark. Smooth mouthfeel; the body is correctly structured; pleasant caramel flavor, but without the elegance and strength of German beers; light smoke trace; the final shows a bit more of dark caramel. Pleasant, balanced, smooth, but not exciting.

jolo (921) - Uppsala, Sweden, SOUTH AFRICA - MAY 12, 2011
Bottle. The aroma is malty and a little smoked and roasted and also a little caramel. The colour is amber and a little tanned head. The flavour is fruity and spicy and a littel caramell. A really nice christmas beer

330ml bottle - birthday gift from SaintMatty - thanks!
7 On pouring, tons of banana. In the glass, there’s still plenty of banana, but a pleasant dry wooly smokiness too. Was served cold, so expect it to evolve.
4 Lovely deep red, with an brief spongy orangy tan head.
7 Great rich roasty taste, a touch wooly. Some liquorice and slightly christmassy spices there too.
4 Full palate, smooth and a touch sweet, and with pleasant carbonation. Finish picks up from the roastiness of the taste, and continues with actual burntness, and a bit of barky bitterness.
14 Covers the alcohol well. Full of flavour, rich and warming. Good one. Thanks SaintMatty!
