Batch 291, BB 17-10-11, sampled on December 15, 2010
Clear deep red color, smallish light brown head. First scent is mainly spicy. Then one (me) finds citrus, clove, cocoa, ginger, also sweet. A bit flat, dryish, cocoa, flor, apple taste. Dry cocoa powder aftertaste. Medium, low co2 mouthfeel, sort of smooth. Some alcohol bite/warming feeling. Medium bitterness.

Ser ut som julmust. Luktar tunn/vattning kakao, lite som yogi te och lite stjärnanis. Smakar kakaopulver utspätt i vatten med lite ingefära. Beskan påminner om bittermandel och förmycket kardemumma. Eftersmaken påminner om de beska kryddorna i glögg.
Ett kul försök till julöl, men det är inte mer än bara "kul". oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 14, 2010
Bottled@fonefan. Deep ruby colour with small off-white head. Aroma is spices, wood, some roasted malts, liquorice as well as some slight ashyness. Flavour is a lot of spices, roasted malts, caramel malts as well as some slight liquorice, wood and mild resiny notes. hirigalzkar (3163) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2010
Bottle. Pours black. Off white head. The aroma has got a sweet christmasy feel to it. Notes of gingerbread, coffee and clove. Add some coffe bean roughness in the aftertaste and you get the picture of how it tastes. I really like this beer because of its christmasy feel and high drinkability!

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2011 Very dark but clear ruby red with a big fluffy dirty head. Aroma is looots of ginger, cinnamon, clove, some dark fruits, burnt malts, cookie. This is a liquid ginger cookie! Taste is ginger and spice, burnt malts, cinnamon, some dark fruit. Not especially sweet at all. Quite bitter and dry. Spicy bitterness. Body is quite thin. stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - DEC 12, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear and brown beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, sweetness and spices with cloves and cinnamon. The flavor follows the nose closely. The palate is sweetness and spices. Overall an average beer with too many spices and a lot of sweetness. screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - DEC 12, 2010

Bottled from Systembolaget
Black with a large, off-white head.
Fresh, slightly roasted aroma and flavour with ginger.
Light to medium bitterness and pretty moderate sping makes it a good beer in my palate!
