Mad_Ferret (1006) - 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.

konstifik (573) - SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2010
Pours a very nice mahogany brown with a tanned head. Aroma is of bittered christmas spices and alcohol. Some oranges and cognacsoaked raisins in the background. Taste also has a lot of harshly bitter christmas spices. It’s just wrong for me, christmas spices should be on the sweet side. Lots of flavours going in all different directions too. I just don’t think this is a good spice beer.

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.

Nisse666 (6303) - 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

Bov (12007) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 24, 2011
courtesy of Per - slightly hazy reddish-brown in colour and with a solid creamy beige foam; earthy aroma with fair notes of cinnamon and nutmeg; overcarbonated and medium-bodied, some sweetness and a late tart bitterness; long and robust overwhelming spicy finish - unbalanced

SirLimpsalot (3815) - SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2010
Lite intetsägande doft, stickande kolsyra, fruktansvärd gummi-liknande smak och mycket vidrigt sediment som inte ville stanna kvar i flaskan.

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!
