wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 17, 2010
{thoughts} Roasty, spicy and earthy; pleasantly dry and heavy with lingering flavors.

{elements} Medium brown hue with a red tinge; tall, light tan cream. Aroma is of mild coffee with kaleidoscopic underpinnings of vanilla, clove, old books, figs and caramel. Off-dry, mild and clean acidity, soft and balancing bitterness; broad coffee flavors without overpowering roast, soft caramel and evergreen / juniper; long, lingering smoky and spicy aftertaste. Slick texture, moderate carbonation, medium body. 50 cl bottle, best before 27/10/2011.

mile (4052) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 15, 2010
Bottle. Reddish brown, small to average fully diminishing head. Light to moderate lightly sweetish malty aroma, some roasted malt and barnyard. Body is light to medium, malty and lightly roasted flavor with notes of coffee. Finish is short to average, malty with some roasted malt and coffee. This thin bodied and lightly hopped beer from London is not very “wintery” up here north – more like autumn beer. On the positive side – no added spices.

lusikka (7833) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 13, 2010
500 ml bottle. BBE 27.10.2011.
Pours a dark reddish brown colour with a small white head. Aroam of syrup and chocolate malts. Flavour of chocolate malts, mild coffee and a huge amount of salt. Not very pleasant. Medium bodied with a thin mouthfeel and a dry finish. Yet another average brew from Meantime.

esox (1226) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 11, 2010
Bottled. Slightly sour, caramelly taste Sulphuric off-taste. Quite pleasant, floral/soapy fuggle hops. Dryish maltiness and slightly fruity aftertaste. Somewhat sticky and bland mouthfeel.

3.6
ndon (857) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2010
500ml Bottle at Pumphouse, Sydney. Pours a dark brown, with a thick beige head. The aroma is roasted malts with a hint od citrus and caramel/toffee. Fairly thin in the mouth, but not unpleasantly so. Flavours are sweet caramel with chocolate, a light citrus and some berries. light bitterness on the finish.

3.2
BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 22, 2010
Bottle. Pours clear, very dark brownish ruby with a short off-white head that shrinks to surface cover fairly quickly. Aroma is mildly roasty and quite fruity with notes of raisins, dates, cherries and chocolate. Flavour is maltier than the aroma, with hints of caramel, coffee, wood and biscuit, but the fruity notes are pretty much the same. Light, thin body with moderate carbonation and a lingering roasty finish. Not too bad overall but could have been much better with a bit more body and alcohol.

2.9
Muggus69 (2726) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2010
Carted a bottle over to Berlin with me. Deep dark brown beer, tan head. Aroma is particularly spicy, bit notes of roasted malt and mollasses. Doesn’t give away too much. Quite thick texture, bolstered by a relatively low carbonation. Considerably sweet body; chocolate, raisins, milky coffee, cinnamon like spice and peppery phenolics. Finish has a relatively low bitterness. Seems like a nightcap sort of beer, without the all important booze!

3.5
thomat (4144) - G�teborg, SWEDEN - MAY 6, 2010
Dark amber with a thick tan head. Malty with chocolate notes. Hops, coffee and hops. Medium body with dry finish.

2.9
donfardz64 (538) - Wellington, New Zealand, NEW ZEALAND - APR 13, 2010
Pours reddish brown, tan head. Raisiny nose, hint of choc, bit of spice. Flavour has a slight sweetness, chocolate malt, a little bit of raisin fruit. Just not screaming winter to me. It’s a bit thin.

3.5
hawthorne00 (4116) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 8, 2010
Dark brown, rapidly dissipating beige head. Mild roasted malt aroma with caramel and some port and lemon. Taste is chocolate sweet with some dark fruit backed with a gentle but insistent bitterness. Just slightly oily/ sticky body, but it’s pretty light. Dry finish with some smoke. Draws you in.
