4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Spicy and strong aroma of cloves, cinnamon, cardemom and orange. Flavour starts with an exploding spice and herb combination. Then moves over to a mild and dry middle and a deliciously soft finish. The aftertaste keeps on for long with a combination of citric fruits and dry, roasted cocoa and coffee notes. The palate is overwhelming and stabile. A very delicious brew!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark redbrown with pretty good beige head.
Malty aroma with tones of coffee and roasted malt. A bit hoppy.
Caramel flavour with fruity tones. Quite low bitterness for being a Jämtlands beer

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2014 500ml bottle, pours opaque dark mahogany with a small tan head. Aroma and taste of roasted malt, prunes, caramel and muscovado. Light sweetness and medium bitterness. Medium body, smooth texture and average carbonation. Less sweet and better balanced than most Swedish Christmas beers, low on spices however. A pleasant tasty beer overall.

Välkomponerad smakbild med snyggt utplacerade balanspunkter. Kraftfull samtidigt som den är mild och varlig. Jämtlands bryggeri vet vad kvalitet innebär.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear dark brown with a big lacy off-white head. Aroma is a pleasant and uncomplicated mix of chocolate, caramel and spicy German hops. Flavour is suprisingly earthy, with a light sweetness and some roast chocolate and nutty flavours, the hops taste a little green and grassy. From memory, it didn’t taste too different from their tiotaggare, which is by no means a bad thing. Overall its very satisfying and a great beer, perfect for Christmas.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light hazy nut-brown colored beer with medium creamy beige head. Nice nutty aroma with touches of roasted and coffee flavoured caramels. In the nose also a touch of hops and herbs. The body of this beer is a bit thin. It has touches of malts a light roasted malts with a neutal nuttyness. In the end you have hints of dry caramel and the bitterness of the hops.
Thanks Joris for this beer.

Pours dark amber with a thick, creamy tan head. Yeasty, toffe-ish nose with the usual Jämtlands house character. Some nuttyness is present. Spicy, slight hoppy flavour with some notes of yeast. Acidic and bitter in finish.
