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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet aroma but also some salty meat among the chocolate. Flavour seems and odd clash of sweet malts and almost sour tasting hops(?). Not bad but feels schizo.
