3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml capped bottle pours a cloudy dark amber color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is chocolate and caramel with some smoke and hints of chestnuts. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness with a nutty woody taste and a smoky finish. An interesting brew which I rather enjoyed.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (Viisi Pennia, Helsinki) - shared with mjs - thanks!
Interesting wooly chestnut aroma, some woodiness. Some almost cola-bean sweetness. Smooth palate, soft carbonation. Metallic retronsals, very metallic finish. In between, it’s wooly. Looked OK, a nice orange, with a small peristent head after a rocky start. Quite watery, but also doesn’t shout 6.5%. Dry aged leather and wooly finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
27/05/2013 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Rossa, limpidissima, schiuma bianca leggera, non molto persistente. Al naso sentori di malto e castagna, note di caramello, leggero tostato, guscio di noce, un po’ flebile. In bocca è originale, all’attacco malto, una nota di caramello, leggera castagna, il finale è secco, leggermente acidulo, con una nota sapida che la rende ancora più bevibile. Tutto voluto? Non saprei, ma così com’è è veramente gustosa! Corpo medio, carbonazione soft. Originale e curiosa, rustica, ben fatta!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 33 cl, BBE 28.02.2014. Pours hazy amber in color with a small off-white head. Smoke and campfire in aroma, perhaps some notes of hay as well. Light smokey notes in taste as well. Feels quite smooth and
the notes of some smoke makes this one quite enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smak och doft av humle, karamell, honung, nötig och fruktig. Toner av läder, trä och rök. Svårdefinierbar. Len i gommen med en god beska med karaktär av att du biter i en färsk kastanj. Lagom sötma. Annorlunda.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Systembolaget, Sweden.
Nice head which disappears quite quickly. Color is hazy brown.
Malty and sour nose, bit of grass.
Taste wise, not as sweet as I excpected. Neither does it taste very acidic. Actually, the taste is rather sour, and not in a great way. Might be the chestnuts I’m tasting.
Not a favorite but interesting.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy amber with white head. Aroma is difuse, but there is nuts, grass and earth. Taste of smoke, nuts and dried fruit. This was a real surprise because i thoguht there should atleast be a note of yeast, but there isnt. The taste of smoke gives it a good balance. I think this is underrated.
