SaintMatty (6848) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2010
500ml Bottle (Tack Nina :) ) - Dark brown with some red tinges when held to the light. Spicy aroma with hints of spiced orange, nutmeg, cinnamon and fruitcake. Spicy, fruity and slightly sweet taste with fruitcake, spiced orange and hints of Christmas pudding. Rather complex and there’s a lot going on, but I don’t think I’d be able to drink too much of it.

Nisse666 (6309) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2011
Bottle from SB cons 2011-04-06 Göteborg AR: christmas cloves, sourness, brown farin sugar, roasted malt AP: semi dark brown, wee fizzy bubbles 4 cm in height, but turns into steady rocky head F: first a bit watery, then cloves, growing into the bitter, a bit chocolatt story, but the is something sour that is lurking - that isn’t at all exciting. Wee vinos feeling

olsvammel (6293) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 28, 2010
Bottle from Systembolaget. It poured a dark hazy amber liquid with a big beige head. Smell of spices, orange peels, star anis, cloves, vanilla and chocolate. Similar taste but also some caramel malt. Mostly smooth mouthfeel with a thick body and medium amount of carbonation. Nice balance with the spices, none of them takes over but still enough to make it interesting.
