4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2004 RERATE: On tap at Plain Kitchen, Goteborg, Sweden. This is a good example of how a very good beer gets even better on tap. Great toffee and vanilla aroma with butterscotch. Malty butterscotchy flavor with vanilla notes, mixed with a nice hoppy bitterness. A favourite, thats for sure.
Old rating: Amber color, with a nice creamy and lasting brownish head. Aroma is very good from toffee and caramel, maybe some citrus in it as well. Has a good palate and flavor starts in a rather mild way. Then it turns into quite a bitterness. A little roasted, maybe just a little too bitter. (8/3/6/4/15)

Bottled (BB 03/2007)
Ruby red color, small but steady coffee head. Nice hoppy aroma (grapefruit, pineapple). Medium-bodied. Cracker malty, pine needles hoppy (Cascade?). Kind of American feeling here. Well balanced winterbier - not very Christmasy though.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark mahogany hued ale, subtley spiced with what tastes like cinnamon and orange zest, but also with good
dark malt character and the trademark earthy hoppiness and notes of cocoa. A little sweeter than your average Jamtlands.

Anna says: Red-brown. Aroma of light hops. Slight sour-fruits accompanies a restrained bitterness for a refined taste. A little sweetness and spices (with a hint of zest perhaps) but quite drinkable because they are not overdone. Unusually, Phil did not share this.
