Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. 
courtesy of Per - pours a fully cloudy ruby-brown colour under a solid beige foam; nice lacing; nice balance in the nose between a fair hop presence and toasted chocolatey malts; notes of herbs and licorice too; some robust sweetness and a full malt body, quite velvety palate; a fair bitterness lasting long in a chocolaty and licorice finish - robust and heavy stuff omhper (24979) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 26, 2009
Bottled. Cloudy dark brown, rich head. Orangey licorice aroma. Medium sweet with medium-full body. Really hoppy with perfumy grapefruit and licorice. Powerful lingering bitterness. Lots of hop power hidden in chocolatey malt. AlbertC (277) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 24, 2009
Very nice cristmas beer with complex taste of hops and citrus and finished off with good bitterness. rickgordon (3874) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 22, 2009
Dark ruby-brown colour with pale brown head. Orangey hops, with chocolate in the background. The hop biterness set in pretty early, whereas the maltiness feels a bit subdued, but there is slight nutty maltiness due to the munich malts. Citric hops dominate, in the background a pleasant chocolate is found, along with wood in the finish, plus some alcohol. The bitterness feels really striking, and the beer feels to be pretty dry, maybe because of the hops. Great beer!

0.5 L bottle from Systembolaget. A fingerthick khaki head over a near black body with ruddy edges. Aroma of rounded roastedness and toffee/caramell A pleasant and distinct hoppy smell, too. Medium to full malty, well roasted, with coffee and chocolate notes. A generous amount of fruity and light resinous hops is there to balance. Well-bodied and quite palate-coating. Hop bitter and roasted, malty ending. A very nice one, potent and tasty. hirigalzkar (3133) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2009
Bottle. Lots of citrusy hops. A malty background of coffee and some licorice. Bitter aftertaste. A very american strong ale. finol (3365) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2009
Pours brown like filter coffe with a tan head.
Big taste of caramell, malt, hops and coffe KnutAlbert (6754) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2009
Very dark brown, tan head.
Mothwatering hoppy aroma. Pine and forest, like a liquid Christmas tree. Hop juice, but there is a malty body rising to the challenge.
Pepper and spearmint, too. Defreni (3159) - Husum, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2009
Flaske: Rødbrun øl med et fint skumhoved. Duft af engelsk humle og candy. Smagen er fint balanceret, men ikke så humlet som jeg havde håbet på. Alt ialt en udmærket men lidt kedelig øl der ikke rigtigt bliver forløst.
