On tap. Aroma hoppy and sweet. Taste: a lot of hops but not a lot of other flavors. Hops dominating. mikeyswede (37) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2012

Cask @ Bishop Arms Malmö, Savoy. Brun öl med dragning åt rött. I stort sett utan skum. Doft av mörkt bröd, russin och lätta rostade toner. Samma återkommer i smaken tillsammans med en lätt kryddighet.. Trevlig julkänsla.

På fat @ Bishops Arms Savoy, Malmö. Mörkröd öl med ett nästintill icke-existerande skum. En del julkryddor, samt apelsinmarmelad och kola i aromen. Julkryddor, enbär och apelsin i smaken. Viss beska i eftersmaken. jmgreenuk (10378) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - NOV 11, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2013 Cask at The Bishops Arms (Gustav Adolfs Torg) Malmo. Deep reddish brown pour with a thin bubbly fast dispersing head. A dry yeasty aroma leading into a fruity, medium bitter taste. You could almost chew the fruit. This is a really heart warming flavourful ale and an ideal example of what a Christmas beer should be! oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 3, 2012

(old backlog). Reddish brown colour with a mediumsized beige foamy head that leaves some lace. Aroma is bready and caramel malty with some slight toasted and coffeeish notes along with some ripe fruits, raisins and plum. Flavour is rather similar with some slight spicyness (yeastyness?) to it as well. would probably suit the Xmas food table rather well.
500 ml bottle bought @ Systembolaget and consumed on December 26. Pours clear amber with a creamy gray head that clings to the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty with pine, orange zest, allspice and some bread. Taste is rather subtle and malty with bread, orange zest and subtle hints of sassafras. Finish is slightly sweet and slightly bitter.

Dark brown with off-white head. Nice beer with plenty of caramel, chocolate, wood, soil and some grassy notes. Quite bitter ending.
