look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours deep amber with a large creamy tan head. Dissipation is rather quick and leaves nice lacings.

S: Sweet bready malt, kind of artificial. Faint bitter hops.

T: Sweet bready malt, light roasted. Bitter hops in the back. Faint spicey with cinnamon.

M: Aftertaste is short, but holds both sweetness and dry bitterness. Body is medium as is the carbonation.

D: As a Swedish macro X-mas beer, not bad. The beers from micro-brewers kicks this beer's ass, but for a macro one - not bad at all.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

The smell is a bit caramelized and sweet with some metallic bitterness. Hints of rye bread, weak coffee and cookies. It is a bit flat.

The colour is dark brown, 70 EBC. The liquid is clear; the two finger compact head is amber. Some lacing occurs.

The taste is a bit roasted with hints of toasted bread, light hints of spices (cloves, nutmeg, and cinnamon) and caramel. Passing sour-bitter flavours and a touch of cream. The aftertaste got a slowly growing bitterness, some beef stock and a hint of chocolate. A light sweetness and hints of cocoa powder in the finish.

The carbonation is medium strong; the many small bubbles are fresh. The liquid is semi-smooth and a little sticky.

15 years ago, this was a Swedish Christmas beer that was a bit drier and more focused than the rest. Today, there are many far more interesting and well crafted beers out there.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

The beer is clear, dark brown with hints of read, a tan head with unevenly sized bubbles, good lacing.

The smell is mostly malty, bread, hay, a bit stuffy closet and old socks.

Sweet burned notes initially, dark bread, roasted grains, a rather bitter finish.

Medium high carbonation, small bubbles, rather oily and a medium large body, a dry finish.

I must say that this beer was surprisingly good, less swetness and more taste than anticipated.
