UPDATED: DEC 26, 2018 Bottle from Systembolaget. Aroma of dark fruit, caramel, smoke, spices. Pours dark chestnut body and beige head. Taste is rich with caramel, dark fruit, smokiness, alcohol. Very enjoyable and my favorite among the Christmas beers I tried this year. thejackpacker (1204) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2018 Bottle from Systembolaget. Much much darker than I imagined. Dark chocolate, tobacco. i imagine much better on cask at teh Jerusalem Tavern! NeverBinge (309) - Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 27, 2018
This dark brown and almost headless ale comes with a rich, malty aroma: Christmas pudding, plum, treacle, a hint of coffee, some roastiness... you can even detect a wee 'burnt' edge if you open your mind to it. On the tongue, it starts out dry and then turns bitter-sweet, with the bitterness lingering longest. Wintery? Yes, definitely. But this brew is also amazingly and yet unobrusively complex. My only gripe is its strangely 'filling' quality: Even though it's neither a real ABV monster nor too sweet or syrupy, I can't see myself ever craving more than half a pint (and not much else to follow). But it's delicious in small doses! BarleyTasty18 (67) - - NOV 22, 2018
Bière de 500 ml de couleur brun-roux très foncé, sans col apparent. Au nez, arômes de mélasse et de rotie brûlée. En bouche, malt rôti et fruits foncés. Agréable à boire mais son goût acqueux me laisse perplexe. ChrisOfstad (2296) - Hamar, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2018

500ml bottle; BB 4th Sep 19. Poured into one of their (St Peter's) new tall pint glasses at home on 27th Apr 18. Dark, ruby body, thin beige head. Malty and heavy in both the nose and taste, chocolate notes within the maltiness, semi-sweet with a good bitterness at the end of each sip/gulp. Mild vanilla notes as the beer warms a little in the glass. Liked it. mmmeinike (550) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2018
Dark brown-red with a tan head. Aroma is malt, chocolate, hops and some sweet spices. Taste is sweet malt, chocolate and spices with a hoppy finish.
Smells of chocolate, stout and ale aromas. Pours a dark amber colour. No head. Taste of chocolate and mild spices. Almost a mix between a chocolate stout and ale. Almost no carbonation Overall I was not disappointed. This is exactly what I would like to sip on a cold day leading up to Christmas. Will buy again. MB The Beer Bearon si_law (31) - - DEC 28, 2017

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2017 Flaska från SB. Svårt kulör med beige skumkrona. Doft och smak av mörk choklad, kaffe, lakrits och tjärpastil. Frisk, mediumfyllig och ganska söt munkänsla.
