3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle (Hilpea Hauki, Helsinki)
Slightly toffeeish aroma. Touch fizzy palate, almost watery. Dark roast, but the roast isn’t to the fore at all. No sign of the alcohol at all, but deep down, this beer isn’t doing it for me. Some toffee, some yeast, some snores.Do like the bitter bite in the inish, but it doesn’t cancel the fizziness of the carbonation. A touch yeasty. Unsatisfying. However, with the yeast it’s smoother. But still unsatisfying.

(Bottle, 0.75 l, at Hilpeä Hauki, 20131001) The beer poured reddish brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and almost white. Aroma had caramell, malts and mildly Belgian style yeast. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, caramell, Belgian style yeast, mildly earth and low bitterness. Afteraste was malty and bitter. Not a beer that I woudl categorise and a Bière de Garde but an easy one to drink.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Medium beige head. Hazy deep brown body with carbonation and
visible particles. Funky earthy roasty aroma with licorice and
spice notes. Dry-acidic earthy wooden taste with vomit notes.
Thin-bodied. Slightly sharp mouthfeel from the acid, with some
heat. Sour, roasty earthy honeyish aftertaste lingers for a long
time. This must be infected, because they can’t possibly have
meant for it to taste like this. Awful. (0.75l bottle, from

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of spicy malt. Flavour of toffee with a touch of pepper and spice in the aftertaste. Smooth, slightly oily palate flattened the flavour profile. OK, but not my favourite from this brewer.
