3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ the brewpub! Had this at "Bruuveri Luostari"
The beer in the glass is brown and bright reddish with flat off-white head. It smells hoppy, fruity, subtly bitter and slightly yeasty with some roasted malts. The beer starts very roasty with subtle caramel notes, also hoppy, bitter and very fruity (plum especially). The middle part is also pleasantly hoppy, yeasty and again also very fruity bitter. Goes into a caramelly finish with lots of roasted malts, again very fruity and yeasty.
