Draught at Bishops Arms (Avenyn) in Gothenburg, Sweden. December 2005.
Pretty boring for a Christmas beer. Nice dark color, but thin body, lacking in scent and flavor.
(50 cl bottle from SWedish Systembolaget).
Very sweet grainy sticky, too damn sweet, scent. Clear dark brown color, tan head. Unfermented wort mixed with raw grain. Thin, grainy yogurt, burnt taste. Thin mouthfeel. Very unpleasant, almost like I want to puke. Disgusting! My mouth feels raped! Never sell or brew this again, at least not like this! And above all to the rest, don’t drink it.

Lots of ginger cookies (pepparkakor, in Swedish - a traditional x-mas cookie) in both aroma and taste. Rather thin body with lots of CO2. Some butterscotch taste and low on bitterness. Low to no aftertaste.
Bottle. Frothy good mostly deminishing head, nice dark amber colour. Sweet malty aroma with touch of orange. Desent flavour bur short watery finish and mouthfeel. stouby (4653) - Holbæk, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2005
Draught, at Delirium.
Dark red with beige head, fully diminishing, no lacings. Aroma moderate malty (brown sugar, caramel) and hoppy. Flavor moderate sweet and bitter, long duration. Light to medium body, oily, soft carbonated. No signs of Christmas in this beer? FrankJohansen (3622) - Sabro, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2005
Amber colour with a small white head. Hints of malt and fruit in the aroma. Watery beer.

Copper brown, small off-white head. Spicey aroma: clove is dominant. Quite watered spices in the flavor, unbalanced, lacks a good malt profile.
Draught. Dark copper colour, with small beige head. Spice aroma with vegetably hints. Flavour of Finnish X-as cookies along with hops and malt. Wellbalanced. Christmassy indeed. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Dark amber colour (but not quite as dark as a winter night, as the label promises), with a small dense head. Lovely aroma, almost perfumy. Typical Slottskällans spiciness - perhaps a wee touch of cardamom. Slightly sweet, but not sticky in any way. Discreet bitter finish. A very wellmade and different Christmas beer. 170302
