Dorqui (2174) - Brescia, ITALY - JAN 13, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2007 Canned 0,50L. Creamy and adherent brownish head, good persistence. Dark scorched red color; lightly hazy and much fizzy one. Roasted flavor, lightly metallic. Decidedly bitter scent with notes of toasted malt and caramel. Prickly and round taste, good alcoholic tenor. Discreet end with a bitter and sweetish mixture rumors.

Barrabass (31) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - DEC 31, 2005
Dark brown colour with som red. Thick lacing head. Hopsy nose and a touch of plums. Taste hopsy with a malty finish. Good for chrismas, drinkable once a year.

johndoughty (4874) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2005
Darkish red and poured with a big head which soon dissapeared. Slightly malty and quite well balanced.Not exceptional but better than I had expected.

oh6gdx (24920) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2005
Canned. Dark ruby red colour with beige mediumsized head, which disappears quite fast. Aroma is like sweaty socks at first, but after the beer has settled for a short while you can tell sweet malts with some spicy and roasted hints. Flavour is strong hops, but at the same time plummy and some roasted malts. Aftertaste mainly hoppy, with also some weak roasted malts. Positive surprise from Spendrups!

TBone (15913) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 20, 2005
Can (BB 04/2006)
Ruby red, small tan head. Roasted, spicey, pleasant aroma. Malty, roasted flavor, long roasted, a bit hoppy aftertaste. Balanced roasted malts, complex enough and certainly one of the better Spendrups brews.

stouby (4418) - Holbæk, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2005
Bottle, at home. Redbrown with a small head. Aroma moderate malty and hoppy (caramel). Flavor moderate sweet and light bitter. Light to medium body, soft carbonated. Not that much Christmas in this beer either!

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 27, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Dark brown beer with a tall, thick, brownish head. Pronounced maltiness (probably from loads of münchener) adding a sweetness well-balanced by the hops. Very, very classsical Swedish christmas beer. 180703

rickgordon (3851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 12, 2004
Bottled. Dark ruby brown. Caramelly nose, with tones of anise. Flavour is, just like the 3,5 version, quite nice and tasty with notes of salmiak(ammonium chloride). Long flavour.
