Bottle, 750 ml from Za Popen’t, Ljubljana. Shared with JFK10000. Pours dark brown with beige head. Dark fruits and chocolate aroma. Sweet, roasted malts, dark fruits and too much alcohol in flavor. Expected alcohol to be more hidden and subtle.

radagast83 (7388) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle, along with the 2011. Not nearly as mellow as the ’11, this one retains more spice and more distinct candi notes. Brown sugar, spices. Booze remains a bit more, a touch overwhelming, but not bad. Just drink this stuff fresh, or maybe one year - no more.

Hammy78 (961) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle shared with my brother in-law. Pours an opaque, good carb, a little sediment, off white khaki head that’s about a finger high that dies down to a half a finger, a fare amount of lacing left behind. Smells like a typical Christmas spice. Sweet and malty. Tastes sweet, malty, bitter, spicy, a bit hot, I also get a touch of candy cane? Great stuff.

Pours black color with a large beige head. Caramel malts and some booze on the nose, wood, some licorice and chocolate too. Chocolate, licorice on the flavor, wood, hints of alcohol and cocoa. Decent.

tiong (6482) - Espoo, FINLAND - DEC 13, 2014
750ml bottle @ Varjopikkujoulut

Pours dark brown with a smooth head. Aroma of ripe fruits, syrup, candi sugar, some roastiness and orange peel. Taste is smooth, sweetish and syrupy with some orange peel, syrup, ripe fruits and hints of roastiness. Finish is sweetish, slightly roasty and fruity with some syrup and toffee. Quite interesting, feels a bit more fruity than the other versions.

lusikka (7700) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 13, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a dark brown, almost black colour with a small head. Aroma of sweet maltiness, grass, some herbal notes and orange peel. Flavour of salty licorice, strong orange peel notes, coriander, metallic notes, chocolate malts and some bitterness. Medium bodied and a dry spicy finish. Probably the fruitiest SLH so far.
