Botella. Deep dark brown colour. Hoppy malty caramel aroma. Bit spiced flavour with dark malt, bread, hoppy fruit, medium bitterness. Pleasant. mzaar (3593) - Varberg, SWEDEN - DEC 24, 2011
Vacker mahognyfärgad kropp. Dofter av knäck, pomerans och kavring. Mycket beska i smaken där också mörk sirap och knäck trängs. Inte alls dum. thomat (4091) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2011
Dark amber with a medium tan head. malty with spisy notes. malt, hops, spices and chocolate. Medium body with a balanced, bitter finish. nilsas (4408) - Bryne, NORWAY - NOV 6, 2013
Duft av rosin og malt. fin gyllen mørk rødbrun farge. Lite skum, noe langs kant. Fin smak av rosin, nøtter og frukter, noe tørr. jookos (6954) - FINLAND - DEC 13, 2013
Bottle. Brown clear. XMas spicy malts, a bit of hoppy greens. Surprisingly mellow though, not as overspiced as a lot of xmas brews are. Full bodied, but not super sweet, quite nicely balanced actually. Dry, slight wooden finish. Ok, good, but easily forgot.
ClubGonzo (5685) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 17, 2013
Bottle. Pours a deep ruby-hued body and a small off-white head. Nose is sweet caramel, kitchen herbs (oregano?), pepper, grains and hints of nuts. Taste is burnt sugar, dark malts, grains, herbs, hints of grass and nuts. Medium body and carbonation. OK Christmas ale. Foffern (1963) - Bodø, NORWAY - DEC 20, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours a clear reddish brown colour with a light beige, coffee-like, medium head. Aroma of fruity hops, pine, cheese and leather. More grassy hops in the flavour with some roasted malt. Has a slick and rich mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. An okay and bitter lager, maybe a bit unbalanced flavour. Finn (7916) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 20, 2014
Flaske 0,33l. Gave fra Rune. Drukket i Skibotn 28 Des 13. Dyp mørkebrun. Lavt lysebrunt skum med litt lacing. God karamellaroma med antydning til plommer. Smaken litt tung. Mørk frukt. Avslutningen er tørr. Gjennomgående et visst maltpreg men ettersmaken er fruktig. SamTheBarrel (822) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - NOV 10, 2014
330ml 2014 years vintage brown bottle, with the brewers signature church window shaped label picturing Santa Claus, poured into a snifter glass. Appearance is nearly black opaque dark brown with a medium sized khaki colored head with good retention, that when reduced left a little lacing. Aroma of orange and lemon zest, bread and caramel. Flavours of orange peels, syrup loaf, caramel, lemon zest and a dried apricots. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, soft texture and average carbonation. Wisby Julbrygd is a great beer in the style, flavorful and well balanced. Moebbels (815) - FINLAND - DEC 4, 2014
Pours a clear dark amber body with a nice, fluffy head. Nose has nice arimas of chokolate, caramel, resin and pine needles. Taste is mildly swedt but finishes with a strong, lingering bitterness. Carbonation is on tge lower side and mouthfeel is fairly rich. A nice well balanced beer for the colder seasons.
