olsvammel (4945) - 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.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2010
Bottle. Pours out in a cloudy mahogany appearance with a medium-zed lasting bubbly head. Quite spicy aroma of anise-seeds, cloves, caramel, orange-peels and toasted malts. Medium-bodied with balanced notes of caramel, cloves, anise, fudge, toasted malts and orange-peels. Medium-bitter finish of orange-peels, cardamom, caramel and spicy hops. This is not a spice-bomb, more like a rather harmonious spiced ale. Quite tasty, this.

SirLimpsalot (3124) - SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2010
Lite intetsägande doft, stickande kolsyra, fruktansvärd gummi-liknande smak och mycket vidrigt sediment som inte ville stanna kvar i flaskan.

Marsiblursi (3070) - 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.

Vignale (2853) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 3, 2011
Julmustliknande till färg och skum. Doft av nejlikor, vanilj och choklad. Som en lätt, men rund engelsk porter i munkänsla och smakbild. Massor av torr mörk choklad, vanilj, aningens lakris, betydligt mer rök och blommig engelsk humle. Rund men ganska torr och fint markerad beska. Jag tänker Fuller’s London porter light. Ganska nedtonad julkryddning. Betydligt bättre än MNM.

pilsnerrogge (2712) - Finspång, SWEDEN - NOV 21, 2010
Pours a deep copper brown colour with a large, thick head. The aroma has subtle notes of vanilla, clove and aniseed. Flavour is slightly roasted and has notes of vanilla and clove followed by a long bitter orange-bitterness.

hirigalzkar (2677) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 30, 2010
Bottle. Pours redbrown with a golden head. Chocolate, caramel and smoke notes in the aroma. Sweet taste of caramel, smoke some dry malt, some butter and a touch of hops.

Lilja (2343) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2013
Smak och doft av choklad, vanilj, stjärnanis, laktris, humle, pommerans, en aning rök och blommer. Torr med en god beska.

TheJestersBeer (2308) - SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear, dark brownish copper with a beige head. Spicy nose, almost perfumed, vanilla, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, quite estery, yeast. Almost dry, medium bodied, almost a bit thin, medium bitterness. Spicy taste, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, quite yeasty, it has a sort of ’unfinished’ touch to it, quite rich in flavors, but with a thinnish, homebrewy feel. (2011-01-18)

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 7, 2010
500 ml bottle. Dark brown with red hues. Clear. Medium-sized light beige fine laced head that clings to the glass. Delicate spicy aromas. Hints of cinnamon and cacao. Crisp bitterness on the tongue, but this nicely balanced by malt complexity. Dry powdery texture. Yeasty notes. Clean lightly bitter finish. Excellent Christmas beer. Nicely balanced and very drinkable. Love it.
