As a man of Swedish heritage I must say I was intrigued and excited by this beer. It poured as any darker ale with little to set it apart. The nose was nice with tinges of spice and malt. The flavor is what set this apart as it was reminiscent of a Christmas beer with nutmeg, spicy cinnamon, barley malt, tea leaves, prune, date and then a tangy cranberry finish. The feel was a tad thin when it comes to the overall style. I enjoyed this immensely, perhaps a touch jaded by the history, but it had great flavor.

Pours a clear reddish with a frothy khaki head that dissipates to a layer of foam.
Aroma is reminiscent of cough syrup, with sweetness countering soft cranberry notes.
Flavor is a bit more bitter, with cranberry at the forefront. Acidity balanced the alcohol fairly well.
Body is a tad light, with carbonation a touch high, and noted alcohol warmth.
High in alcohol, but the tartness counters well. Probably one of the better big beers from Dogfish.

Appearance: It has a nice dark brownish amber color to it. It has a nice off-white/light pink head that dies down moderately and leaves some lacing.
Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of sweet berries (mainly cranberries), slight herbal notes, some tartness and sweet honey.
Taste: Like the aromas, it has a some cranberries upfront, a slight herbal quality, slight tartness, sweet honey and some bready malts.
Mouthfeel: It has a low carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.
Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.

Pours a rich, clear cranberry with a one-finger, off-white head that quickly dissipates. Only aroma I could get was faintly honey; not liking honey, this isn't a perk. Tastes mostly like carbonated cranberry juice with a bit of honey and a touch of cough syrup. Not for me.
