Very spicy, feels like your insides have been laced with cinnamon after you drink this down. In fact I can’t even recall much more about this beer than cinnamon cinnamon and cinnamon. Would recommend this to cinnamon heads if there are any, especially to cinnamon girls...

(Bottle BB 02/10/08) Spicy (e.g., cinnamon) and malty aroma. Red brown colour, hazy and brownish, large, thick, slightly lasting head with good lacing. Spicy (cinnamon) and malty flavour. Medium-bodied and lively carbonated palate. 25/11/06

janir (216) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2008
Hazy orange brown color. Lacy, very light brown head. Strong aroma: chokolate malts, cloves, cinnamon and orange peel. Sweet malty flavor has cloves, roasted malts and a bit bitter. Medium-bodied and very smoothly carbonated palate. OK but little bit too spicy, maybe that’s why this is little fusty.

0,33l bottle. Thick Beige head. Dark red, cloudy colour. Sweet aroma of berries and roasted malt and yeast. Rich flavour of roasted malts and apricot. Sweetness of the aroma doesn’t continue on the flavour.. aftertaste is bitter. Sadly, I can’t distinguish cinnamon from this.

Forms an intense head before settling down to a quite beautiful bit murky reddish brown. Spicy aroma, rather pleasant. Flavor has hints of clove, a little yeasty.Goes down smooth. A little special, but not that special in terms of excellence.

mrdasilva (120) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 28, 2007
Good brownish head, dark and hazy deep red appearance. Aroma is very sweet with clear cinnamon. Quite christmasy but not very beer-like. Reminds me of "glögg". The flavor is much better than the aroma. Slightly spicy, fresh, very malty. Pretty good overall.

(330ml bottle) Spicy, cinnamon aroma. Brownish, blur appearance with a nice foam. Firm and caramellish aroma which lasts long. Pretty full and good palate with a slighty dry taste. I liked this beer which I get from my friend, hopefully this beer lands in Finland again in the next christmas!
