rickgordon (3878) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2007
On draught at Bishops Arms, Västra Hamngatan, Göteborg.
Semi-dark brown colour with a tint of red. Creamy beige head. Aroma is dominated by a nice fruitiness, backed up nicely by toffee, caramel and diacetyl/butterscotch. Flavour is a bit toasty, with buttery notes, and hints of vanilla. Overall dry malty beer with lively maltiness. Great mouthfeel as always(hehe) with Ocean Beers! thomat (3868) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2007

Mörk, välkryddat och juligt. En trevlig ny bekantskap. mzaar (3463) - Varberg, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2012
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. ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2008

Draught at MacKinley’s Inn, Stockholm. Pours out in a clear reddish brown colour topped with a big rocky beige foam. Dense but still balanced and complex aroma of nuts, fudge, dried oranges, chocolate-sauce, red berries, yeast and earth. Full, sweet flavour of milky chocolate, almonds, vanilla and figs with dense notes of earthy hops. Medium to full bodied with a soft carbonation. Fudge, nuts and dripping chocolate in the finish with subtle hoppy notes of grass and currant. A very well made winter warmer on the complex malty shore. I need more of this!
Flaska från SB. Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, bröd, kryddor, torkad frukt med nötiga inslag. Lagom sötma, rund och len kropp, fruktig, fin beska. En stabil öl på julbordet. Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 20, 2008
(Draught) Pours beautiful deep dark red. The aroma is of cookie and caramel like malt with a hop blanket of oranges covering everything. Also some notes of sweet liquorice and chocolate. The undertones hold some notes of fruits and flowers. The flavour is clean, full and complex malty with tones of liquorice and caramel. Some notes of oranges as well. The mouthfeel is mild roasted, soft, round, smooth and full. This as good as this type of ale gets. Extremely clean without being lifeless. I like. pilsnerrogge (2948) - Finspång, SWEDEN - NOV 25, 2009
Draught @ Glenfiddich Wharehouse No. 68, Stockholm:Cool_Bond (2676) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2013
Pours dark amber/copper colour with a creamy head. Fruity and sweet aroma. Malty, spicy, light roasty caramel flavour.
Really good smell. The taste is heavenly good but the black malt sneaks himself surprisingly forward. The aftertaste is long and good but not too dry. Really good beer as me. Not like other Christmas beers I’ve tried. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings. Turtles (2664) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 23, 2016
500ml bottle from Systembolaget. Clear dark amber with a creamy tanned head, good lacing. Malty caramel aroma, toffee and biscuits. Smooth mouthfeel, mild carbonated. Toffee taste, malt, bread, dried fruit and butterscotch.
