UPDATED: OCT 4, 2008 Sample from bottle. Julölsprovning at Haket, Göteborg. Brown/orange color. Aroma of malt, caramel, syrup, dark bread and some citric hops. Tastes of sweet malt, oranges, christmas spices, caramel, molasses, butter and some hops. Ok but a bit too flat and sweet. Moz (613) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - DEC 4, 2007
Bottle. Amber/copper colour with a tan head. The same cauliflower aroma as often before in Slottskällans beer, earthy with a light plastic smell. Earthy taste with a light bitterness. yespr (44698) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2007

Bottle vintage 2004 @ Plan B [Courtesy of thewolf, thanks buddy!] Average beige head that mostly diminished. Spare lacework. Clear light brown color. Dried fruit, caramel, spice. René and I agreed that it was a bit oxidized. I guess this bottle could note preserve the beer. Medium bodied with an average carbonation. Light sweet flavor. Light spicy sweet and fruity finish.

A Mes rate:
50cl bottle at home. Nice chestnut brown colour but with a complete lack of head and a watery and bubbly consistency. Looks very much like some sort of soda. Nose of bread and malt and very little else. Flavour is marginally better but only by a cigarette paper. Slight caramel notes and a lite more of the bread and malt noted in the aroma. Pretty poor to be honest. NosirIwont (2512) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear copper-brown with a small, fast-disappearing off-white head. Sweetish malty aroma with notes of cloves, nuts and wood. Flavour is sweetish and malty with notes of cloves and raisins. Feels a bit thin. Finish is sweetish with a lingering mild bitterness and notes of cloves and grass. Slightly cloying in the long run. A bit too much carbonation. 10-03-07. Furseth (2159) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - MAR 5, 2007

Bottle. Deep clear copper colour with medium beige head. Grainy, roasted malt aroma, and spicy notes of cinnamon, cloves, and ginger, together with a faint touch of herbal hops. Medium bodied. Strange aftertaste, with a little bitterness. voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2007
Clear amber with a small off-white head. Sweet aroma of boiled candy, diacetyl and stale crystal malt. Suprisingly thin body, flavours of mildly toasted malts, candy and more diacetyl. Also carries some of the staleness from the aroma, definitly tastes like suspect malts. The finish is nearing watery but is otherwise OK.
