2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, tasted in December 2009. Pleasant reddish amber colour. Quite bready in the aroma and flavour. Some caramel as well on the palate. Slightly metallic mouthfeel. As usual with Stallhagen beers, this was a step up from Finnish macro brews but not up to the standard of the good micros. Palatable but a little dull.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A Mes rate. Bottle at home.
Very dark red amber with just a faint white rim. Very fruity, lots of caramel or toffee and a hint of spice. Slight cardboard and cheap advent calender chocolate. Run of the mill Scandinavian Jule beer. Genius lablel.

Nice coppery clear color, small lasting head. Sweet, malty, pleasant aroma. Fresh, bread-like malty flavor. Good drinkability. Low on hops. Very nice smooth palate. Well done!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2008 Courtesy of Degarth. Pours brilliant amber with almost no head. The aroma is bold yummy caramel blended with Concord grape jam sweetness. The taste has mild notes of sweet nearly grainy malts. That note gets crushed by sweet dark fruity esters and bold notes of caramel and sweet caramel flavored salt water taffee. Very nice but it adds up a bit too sweet after a few ounces are consumed.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark amber colored with little yellow head. Chocolate and licorice here in aroma with some berries, some Swedish flowery hops come up. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is also similar with chocolate and berries, aftertaste dries slightly with fruits. Ok beer with smooth palate.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled, thanks oh6gdx! Clear mahogany colour, minimal head. Aroma of molasses and coffee. Sweet and woody with clean mouthfeel and light body. Feels primitive with insufficient malt and low bitterness.
