(Cask at Viisi Penniä, 20150109) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was small, white and it lasted long. Aroma had malts, molasses and sulphur. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were malts, caramel, grass, earth and bitterness. Aftertaste was earthy and bitter. Aroma was a bit weird but the taste was nicely balanced.
