3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, 330ml aged 4yrs. Dark brown with off white head. I find these bottles difficult to pour as you always get the bits. Solid, dark ale, caramel with hints of spiciness and a wine like flavour, quite sweetish still after the cellaring. Pretty reasonable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle (Kaisla, Helsinki)
Rich red, thin off-white head. Initial aroma was sweet malts, and slightly alcoholic, but peppery hops take over. A little fizzy in the palate. Sweet burnt caramel malts, some peppery hops, and a little wafting of the flavours up the nose on a wave of alcohol. Quite subtle. Finish is at first hoppy and peppery, but softens to a gentle nutty graininess and some liquorice and burntness.
