3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Reading 2006 (Sunday) - thanks Duff. Dark, almost black with ruby hues when held to light. The mosty malty aroma is masked by lots of carbon dioxide coming off it. To taste this is sweet caramel and malt with restrained fruit character. A beer that is extremely easy to drink.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks kerenmk. Clear reddish-brown with an off--white head. Aroma of caramel, roasted malt, toffee, dried fruits, nuts. Sweetish malt, toasted bread, caramel, chocolate flavors with hops bitterness in the background. Light-medium bodied, quite easy drinking. Decent.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, Oliver Twist, Stockholm, Sweden. Rudy brown colored beer with a small creamy head that doesn’t last well. Nothing to speak of in the dull nose. Faint smells. Flavor is not flawed, but again very dull and doesn’t provide much to describe. Little mouthfeel. A barely drinkable beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brown colour tan head looks nice. Aroma is roasted but rather weak. Flavour is again roasted and sad to say a bit watery. Carbonation is lively.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
50 cl bottle - Dark brown with a brown, big and lasting head as with most schwarzbiers. Big fruity aroma with some hops. Roasty and almost smoked flavor combined with some mild hoppiness. Was expecting more from Jämtlands and its high ratings. More sweetness is to be desired.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2008 Bottle. Deep brown color with a beige head. Aroma of roasted/burned malt, chocolate, toffee, and coffee. Tastes of roasted and sweet malt, coffee, chocolate, caramel and a bitter finish. Creamy mouthfeel. A bit similar to a stout/porter.
