Flaska från SB. Brunröd vätska med två fingrar högt skum. Doft av mörkt matbröd och karamelliserat socker. Maltig och fyllig smak med bra beska. Något torr. Medelfyllig och bra eftersmak. Julöl med stort J. Bygers (1185) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 25, 2014
Bottle 0,5l. Pours a dark brown colour with a off-white head. Aroma of raisins, figs along with a rich caramel base with fudge and chocolate. A light hoppy touch of pine and red berries and a medium bitter ending.

Bottle - January 2007, thanks to Omhper for sharing!. Pours a deep, clear, red-copper with a finger wide slight head, that diminishes to a small head that accompanies all my pint leaving some lacing behind each sip. Aroma is nice, some caramel and sherry with some red fruits. Tastes fruity, strong caramel, bittersweet, some cider, spices, woody and a subtle vinous vein. Aftertaste is bittersweet and firm, some earthy hops. Chewy mouthfeel. Maybe a bit oxidized but it really fits it. A comforting and solid winter brew.

Clear chestnut red with a medium crackling beige head that leaves some minor lacings.
The first whiff of the same old buttery toffee as always in Jämtlands, then comes a vinous tobacco spicy fruity aroma with some chocolate.
Taste is extremely malty and a bit rough with burnt earthy tobacco notes and dark fruit. Vinous. Chocolate in the aftertaste with peppery herbs. Feels much stronger than it is and it stings the tongue a bit.
Full bodied with a soft but tickling carbonation.
A well made but quite rough malt bomb.

Oily, fruity with a hint of honey, amber-colored ale designed special for winter. Very cool label (very thin paper though :) MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2005

Finally I got down to rate this. Have had it every year and enjoyed it. A rich head and the house aroma we all love is there. Very good balance of malts and hops. Fullbodied and moreish.
Nice one. Dark and mushy, bitter and sweet, adult candy by the christmas fire. More!
