SamTheBarrel (376) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - NOV 28, 2013
500ml bottle, pours brownish-black with a medium sized tan head, that reduced quickly. Aroma and taste of orange peels, caramel, herbs and spices. Light sweetness with and light-medium bitterness. Light-medium body, thin texture and average carbonation. Okay overall, but has a somewhat too strong taste of clove.

Murrzik (1) - - NOV 16, 2013 does not count
Good. A bit thin perhaps in the end. A beer to drink a boring winter Sunday but not necessary on Christmas table

bergstaden (1170) - Røros, NORWAY - MAR 9, 2013
Dark amber with a light brown head - Malt and some spice in the aroma - Good malt body and there is olso a good spicy taste that is well integrated into the beer, and the spice lasts for a long time - long spicy finish that lasts - this was good and had interesting flavours

Bottle, november 14th 2012. Dark brown body, red tinted, small tanned head. Aroma of cloves, berries, roasted malt. Metal taste, lots of malt, vanilla and juniper. The metal taste is disturbing an elsewhere good beer. Sweet and thick mouthfeel, with a vanilla and juniper finish.

TEJA (1261) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Vintage 2010, sampled in 2013. High brown head that is semi lasting. Clear dark red color. Spicy aroma from christmas with ginger and carnations and possibly some dried peels from Seville orange. A bit plain in the taste were just the spices come forward and thinn body. Have I aged this too long?

Leini (713) - SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2013
500ml bottle, 2012 edition. Dark bread, gilly flower, dark syrup, clementine, dark chocolate, roasted malt and some spices that made me think of Jägermeister. Well done but I’m having a hard time with the flavor from the spices.

Det sägs att flest husbränder inträffar under den kallaste delen av vintern. Om det var det som fanns i åtanken när de skonigslöst brända tonerna som dominerar den här midvinterbrygden mejslades fram ska låtas vara osagt, men det är den bästa förklaringen jag kan komma på just nu. Väl godkänd trots eldsvådan.

ogivlado (5539) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 16, 2013
Bottled 500ml. -Reddish/brown coloured, medium sized tan head, light roasty nose. Roasted malt, pleasant notes of spices and hint of caramel with mild herbal presence in the finish. Bit messy but all in all ok brew.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2013 Bottle at ChrisO Holiday Tasting, London - thanks to Ronny. Vintage 2012. Pours clear brown with a fine, beige cream head. Wet brown bread nose with hints of ripe bananas. Medium sweet flavor with more brown bread, light smoke and ham. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Light dry finish wtih toasty brown bread, well-cooked ham, mellow smoke. Decent stuff overall. (3.8)

Bottle at ChrisO Holiday Tasting, London - thanks to Ronny. Vintage 2011. Pours clear brown with a fine, beige foam head. Dry brown bread nose. Light to medium sweet flavor with more dry brown bread, light ham, mellow leaves, faint spice. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Light sweet finish with toasty brown bread, some brown sugar, mellow spices. OK. I guess I liked the 2012 better. (3.5)
