Great malty character. Somewhat sweet, bready, spicy, and with a large body and decent light brown head - all of which fits the Christmas beer style. Though, can be slightly overpowering due to its full-bodied sweetness: should be drunk to food, not as a stand-alone. Some bitterness that lingers on, and a reminiscence of strong Scottish ale. Nice dark brownish-red color. Good to great-ish, but far from extreme.
Pretty average christmas beer. Pours dark brown in the glass with a quite small foamy head. Taste is dried fruits and roasted almonds. Wischylini (310) - Grimstad, NORWAY - FEB 13, 2017
Appearance Pours a clear deep brownish red, with a dense tan head with good lacing Brandman (2948) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 16, 2017
Aroma Fruity English ale yeast, dried fruits, liquorice, burnt sugar, nuts, and hints of spices
Taste Sweet up front, with a dry finish, and a well-rounded bitterness
Palate Medium-full body, mild carbonation
Clear deep mahogany body, offwhite head. Aroma has bready kvass, dried fruits and cola. Flavour adds malts, nuts, some roasted notes and bread. Astringent, enough bitterness, dry. Balanced and good. NallePalle (646) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2016

Clear dark copper brown color with a small off-white head.
Coke, dark malt, sweetness and Old Ale notes in the aroma.
Nuts, toasty malt, dryness, bitterness, dark fruits, peanuts and Old Ale in the flavor. Really English.
Pours from bottle clear dark brown with minimal tan head -- looks like coke in a glass. Aroma sticky date pudding. Taste medium sweet. Palate medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, long finish growing in bitterness. Overall nice example of a Christmas ale. SvanteL (548) - 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. martythesmarty (336) - SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2016
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a small cream head. Aroma had notes of caramel and christmas spices. Taste is sweet but has a nice bitter finish.
