Bottle, 33 cl, shared with Rolf L. Decent christmas ale, prominent initially, then smoother finish. 7stern (647) - Bromma, SWEDEN - NOV 30, 2012
Reddish dark brown with low head. Nutty, sweet aroma. Earthy, sweet taste, rather long bitterness. Moz (613) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2005
Bottle, Dark brown. Aroma of raisins, honey and the usual "smell of Jämtland". Sweet taste, much of everything, some taste of liquorice in the aftertaste. HULK777 (599) - - NOV 24, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2013 Farmhouse, cacao, and straw aroma. Similar taste, but also hints of raspberries and caramel.

Brun i färgen, kryddig god maltig/söt smak som hänger med i eftersmaken. Lagom styrka. Flaska från Systembolaget.

One of my Christmas favourites. Deep dark brown-red colour with a nice frothy off-white head. Deep toasty and roasty malt flavours with dark fruity and chocolatey notes with earthy english hops. Medium bittersweet with a lasting finish. A great companion to the Christmas foods. SvanteL (549) - SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2016
Kopparfärgad med medelstort gräddvitt skum. Maltig doft med torkad frukt (russin, fikon) och aningen kryddighet. Maltig smak med sötma av russin och fikon, en bra beska kommer och balanserar bra mot sötman. En smakrik och bra julöl utan att sticka ut på något sätt.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2009 Pours a dark red/brown color in my Jämtlands glass. It has a nice foamy head. A bit of lacing.
Aroma is interesting of caramel, very malty, some toffee notes along with a typical fruitiness.
Flavour is malty, caramely (very caramely actually) with a good bitterness. Notes of citrus, some aromatic hops, toffee and dried fruits, it also got a slightly burnt note with a bit of nuttiness. Overall very balanced and tasty. There’s also some special Jämtland note, which I tend too find in moast of there beer. Here it makes it very well with the other flavours, so nothing negative about that.
Mouthfeel is quite smooth and filling with a certain "bite" in it.
A very drinkable and nice Christmas beer, I’m glad I finally tried it. blafa (511) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 1, 2011
