3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep and hazy amber with a thin layer of tan head. Aromas is strong with some sweet and sticky floral notes as well as some piney resin. This beer has a very strong flavor, it almost tastes like bitter molasses with a tinge of alcohol which lends to a fantastic aroma but to somewhat of an overbearing flavor. The flavor profile tends to change a bit from sip to sip, but most of what I get is a sweet and somewhat rounded tart flavor. Pretty good.

On tap at O’Connors. Deep golden with white head. Aroma is malty, slight smoke, hops and some catty notes (especially when the beer was untouched for 5 minutes). Taste is malty, quite complex, smoky notes and unclear hop notes. Faint alcohol. in the finish. I like.

Draught @Tommyknocker, Helsinki. Pours dark reddish orange with a smooth head. Aroma of malts, caramel, toffee, berries and hints of sourness. Taste is filled with off flavors, sourness, earthiness and tart notes with some berries and caramely malts. Finish is messy and feels off with some sourness, berries and caramel. Feels off.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours bubbly red orange with a massive foamy and noisy yellowed head. Naturally forming wet lacing. Aroma is sweet caramel malt and rye with a touch of pepper. Taste follows - quite sweet. Caramel with rye malts and a nice mild hoppy bitterness. Well-balanced for sure. A touch of booze out back. Good.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A small taste from tap @ One Pint Pub. Pours slightly cloudy amber with a high off-white head. Aroma is malts with some brett. Flavor is slightly fruity malts with some more brett and hops. It’s not bad but I’m pretty sure this shouldn’t be sour.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap@1pp. Orange-reddish hazy. Vinegar and funk on nose, resinous malty, pines. Fullish body. Not really tart, but dryish feel still, bitter, pine biting finish. Possibly a foul keg unless its supposed to smell like a sour. Lots of malts, sort of nice easy body tho for the abv and malt presence (..which might be unintended). Flavourful, but feels just messy now.
