yespr (48916) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2008
33 cL bottle. Pours clear and deep golden brown with a lacing tan head. Ligh chocolate note and vague spiced aroma. Mild chocolate malt flavour to a medium dry bitterness. Light bitterness into the finish mixed with a nice chocolate smoothness.

Ungstrup (38935) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2008
Bottled. A red-brown beer with a medium tan head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of dusty hops and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of metal and caramel as well as lighter notes of nuts, leading to a dry bitter and metallic finish.

Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 10, 2008
(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of yngwie. Clear orangey brown with an off-white head leaving some laces. Lightly sweet caramel nose with a fruity touch. Medium body with roasted malt and lightly burned and ashy notes. Also has a little fruit and caramel. The finish is dry with a lightly burned bitterness. 220608

yngwie (17284) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 27, 2008
Bottle. Pours an inviting, dark reddish brown body without any hazyness, and with a dense, but rather quickly diminishing beige head. Nice lacings. The aroma is rather boring, with caramel, pale malt and some sugary notes. I’m not sure, but I think there’s some faint vegetal aromas as well. It’s quite sticky in the mouth, medium to full bodied, with flavors of lightly roasted malt, sweetness, a little hoppy bitterness that tries to hide, but fails to do so in the finish at least. There’s also some notes of dried fruits, as well as grains. It’s far from a bad beer, but considering it being brewed for powerful Christmas dishes, I think it fails its task. (080127)

gunnfryd (15490) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2008
Bottle. Red brown colour with a beige head. Aroma is fruit, malt, caramel. Flavour is fruit, malt, caramel, roasted . I think the body is too weak. Still a drinkable beer.

Rune (13727) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 20, 2007
330ml bottle. Pours a rusty-brown coloured body under an off-white head with fragile lacing on the glass. Light chocolate aroma with an increasing tendency towards cocoa. Flavour has got hints of bitter, dark chocolate on a foundation of coarse malts. And there’s some xmas spicies coming through in a rather short tail (Oslo, 14.11.2007).

KimJohansen (10498) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2008
Clear brown with large off white head. Sweet aroma with roasted malt, caramel and chocolate notes. Sweet flavor with roated malt, caramel and spicy notes.

Skinnyviking (9767) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2009
Bottle. High creamy and long lasting off-white head leaving nice long curtains. Clear dark ruby body. Mild and sweet roasted barley malt with a soapy note. Mild sweet roasted barley malt flavor with a bit of caramel cocoa and a spicy note. A bit watery. Low carbonation. Short aftertaste.

Cunningham (8527) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 20, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2012 Bottle from local grocery store. Amber colour with a light beige head. Sweet nose. Caramel and roasted malt flavour with a strange soapy? note.

Finn (8305) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2009
Dark red/amber colored. A large tanned creamy head. Sweet roasted aroma. Flavor is very burned with a dry roasted aftertaste. Lacks sweetness for a proper Christmas beer, but not bad. KI=6
