Theydon_Bois (8276) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle at ChrisO tasting, thanks to Ronny, 30/12/12. 2012 vintage - parallel taste with 2011. Notes in book but scored identically. Lightly hazed dark chestnut brown with a thin off white head that escapes to the edge and leaves a thin film. Nose is dark malt, dark fruits, rye, a little smoke. Taste comprises dark malt, brown rye bread, spice, raisens, dark fruits, hint of smoke. Medium bodied with soft carbonation and a touch of bitterness in the roasted finish. Decent enough!
