Biggish light brown shiny head. Deep dark red translucent body. Fruity vanilla fudge aroma, mellow and harmonic. Dry roasty buttery vanilla fudge taste with fruity caramel notes. Mid-bodied. Dry fruity metallic roasty aftertaste. Fruityness clashes with the metal, and really spoils it for me. (0.5l bottle, Systembolaget, Charlottenberg.) SaintMatty (7526) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2010
500ml Bottle (Thanks Svesse) - Dark brown with red tinges and a foamy head. Smoky, malty and fruity aroma with notes of dried fruit. Roasted and fruity taste with dried fruit, nuts and some smoky notes. olsvammel (7289) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 11, 2013
Bottle from my father. Fruity smell, like dried raspberries. Similar taste, fruity with some cereal and some malt sweetness. Fairly light body, I would have preferred it a bit thicker. Decent beer, but it lacks something. larsniclas (7217) - Billdal, SWEDEN - NOV 13, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2005 Bottled.
Brown with a fine head.
Some chocolate-aroma and a pungent hens-food-aroma.
Rather thin and dry with chocolate-flavour. jookos (7042) - FINLAND - DEC 31, 2016
Bottle. Brown reddish clear. Some metallics, sorta macro dull dark bready, like a pre-sliced piimälimppu, light spicy. Med bodied, red fruity, dullish, thin. Feels industrial, dull, macro metallic.

<i>Bottle (50 cl) from Systembolaget</i>. Clear reddish brown, rich beige bitter head. Malty aroma with soffe roasted chocolate notes. Light to medium bodied, very soft but lively carbonation. Quite dry with low to moderate bitterness. Close to being very good, but something is lacking. KnutAlbert (6792) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2009
A fairly traditional Scandinavian Christmas beer. Lots of sweet malt, caramel malt to give color.
Some spicy hops, sweet finish.
If you want to boast of brewing craft beer, you should be a bit more inventive than this. Cletus (6368) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 5, 2010
