Dark mahogany, almost black in glass. Big frothy head medium long and beige, bit lacing that does not look that nice. Bit funky, malt and hoppiness, ripe fruits. Fizzy crisp light feel, dry finish is bitter and long, tasty. Quite interesting beer, tasty and funky.

laiti (5956) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 22, 2013
33 cl bottle @ home. Batch #609: BBE 09/2014
Alvinne did it again! My big Karmeliet glass is 3/4 head and 1/4 beer. Aroma is fruity with some urinal cake, grapefruit and peppery spices. Feels weird and stale after the head is gone. Flavour is rather strong on peppery spices and finishes with salty licorice, herbs and floral notes. Aftertaste is bitter in a harsh way. Lacks the refreshing aroma that Freaky had Ė roastiness and sourness usually donít mix. And they donít mix in this beer either.

FatPhil (9596) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 20, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2013 330ml bottle (K Kamppi)
Cola brown, enormous sudsy self-supporting head. Rich grainy aroma, a little sharp and winey despite fiving off a darker roast hint. Quite thin body, but nice roasty and berry retronasals. Carbonation quite high. Nicely roasty, a bit yeasty, and a great bitter bite. Anna liked it less than me, suggesting 3.2, but Iím definitely in the 3.4 camp. However, we both think this is a good 3.8% quaffer - I love the bitter bite and tingle in the finish. Such a dry palate. Nicely attenuated and well crafted.

olio (6508) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 20, 2013
33 cl bottle. BBE 09/2014.
Pours dark brown color with a huge frothy head. Aroma of sour fruits, yeast, some spice notes, caramel malts and mild hoppy notes. Some subtle goose berry bush too. Flavor of sour fruits, goose berries, yeast, earth notes and some wood. High CO2, almost escaped from the bottle, sour and a tad metallic palate. Not very balanced.

lusikka (6525) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 5, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a dark brown, almost black colour with a white head. Aroma of roasted malts, espresso and some pungent citrusy notes. Flavour of strong roasted malts, sour berries, citrus, grassy bitterness, espresso and sweet caramel. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a sour, roasty and light bitter finish. Weird.

For some reason I canít smell too many aromas but it has a light sourness to the nose. Cola brown beer with a freakishly big head. If the head belonged to a person he would work in a circus. Mouth feel is dry and sour. Very light bodied. This kind of sourness is not the first thing I want from a beer but Iím glad that itís not as sour as stomach acid is. Thereís also strong and sharp bitterness. I donít see a reason why I would buy this again because Iím not a big fan of sour beer.

Hermod (3452) - Vantaa, FINLAND - DEC 8, 2012
33cl bottle. Bbe sept/14. Colabrown, mediumsized head. Sour, lactic yeasty aroma, similar flavor. Fail. Something wrong with this bottle.

TET (1756) - FINLAND - NOV 6, 2012
A colabrown beer with a very big, soapy and light brown head. Aroma of fruits, citrusfruits, some roasted malts and liquirice, overally the aroma based on the tastefull fruits, balanced aroma. Taste of roasted malts, citrusfruits, some sour apples and lemon, aftertaste is quite dry and clearly roasted. Light+ bodied, quite fresh, lots of carbonation. Interesting and fresh Brown Ale, that is not always self-evidense in this style, unique fruits and citrusfruits gives the nice belgian touch.
