Marsiblursi (2989) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2010
(Bottle) Pours dark brown to black with nougat coloured head. The aroma holds nutmeg, vanilla, ginger and cloves up front with a dry roasted, chocolaty malt backbone. Undertones of asphalt/tar, bark rye bread, ginger bread, citrus, dark sponge cake, Swedish julmust and liquorice root. The clove brings clear notes of German wheat beer phenols. The flavour is light sweet, light to medium bitter and light tom medium acidic. Tones of spices, roasted malt and citrus. The mouthfeel is soft and almost oily with a tart citric finish. Near medium carbonated. The finish is hoppy with light notes of spices and roast. Medium bodied.

grungejesus (51) - SWEDEN - DEC 23, 2010
Lunktar surt och lite plastigt.red, clear, frothy, tan foam, light sweetness, medium bitterness, medium sourness, medium body, sticky, average carbonation, Besviken. Luktade inte som det smakade. Smaken var ganska intetsägande, viss lakrits och rostadetoner. Smakade som ett halv ok hembryggt öl. Förstår inte hur Sigtuna kan vara nöjda med detta öl!

Mad_Ferret (617) - SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2010
Clear dark ruby red. Dirty brown head. Aroma is spicy with some caramel and dark berries, liquorice. Taste is a bit bitter/sour with spice, liquorice, coffee, bitter chocolate, some dark fruit, burnt. Body is medium. Quite aggressive carbonation. For the christmas dinner table I guess it might work. Otherwise...naah.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2010
Bottle. Dark brown with a beige head. Malty, spicy aroma with lots of cloves, also some chocolate and citric hop notes. Flavor of spices (lots of cloves again), roastad malt, licorice, chocolate, cough syrup and citrus. Rather strong carbonation. Less heavy on the cloves and a bit smoother carbonation would make a really nice beer.

SirLimpsalot (2058) - SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2010
Lite intetsägande doft, stickande kolsyra, fruktansvärd gummi-liknande smak och mycket vidrigt sediment som inte ville stanna kvar i flaskan.

gyllenbock (4385) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2010
Bottle. Reddish brown with a small beige head. The aroma was subtle in terms of spices. Tasted mostly malt and spices, also some chocolate. A lot of carbonation. Drinkable but nothing sensational.
