Leini (906) - 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.

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.

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)

Theydon_Bois (9915) - 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!
