75cl bottle thanks to rosenbergh. Cheers Jan! Color is dark red/brown. Head is almost non-existing. Body is thin but oily. Taste is medium bitter, sour, a bit salty. Aroma is smoke, rye, cereals all around, alcohol, caramel, malt, remedy, bread, spices. Quite an experience, again!

Thanks to erzengel for sharing!! Pours a hazy brown with orange highlights and a nice tight tan head - though small. The smell is dark rye bread, fruit, spice, caramel. The taste is spicy rye, tangy fruit, caramel, some alcohol heat, fruit ending dry and spicy. The beer is medium in body with nice tight carbonation. The nicest sahti that I have tried so far.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to Rosenbergh for this great stuff!
The nose is very fruity and yeasty. Caramel-sweet. Some herbs. The brew starts smooth, but not as great as the lower % version. Some juniper-notes in the mainpart, smooth caramel, yeast. Nice malt. The aftertaste is long, smooth. The bakers-yeast (!) creates an aroma of fresh yeast-dough together with the brown smooth caramel-malt. The juniper fits in great, but could be a bit more intense.
--> Great stuff. but the lower %-version is a bit deeper in aroma, probably due to the huge sweetness of this brew. It is probably even a bit too sweet. --> 12/13/11/12

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home. schiuma beige grossolana, scarsa, poco persistente. Birra marrone con riflessi ramati, opalescente. Profumo intenso acetico, fruttato /frutti rossi/ vinoso/ alcolico. Gusto intenso, persistente. Ingresso dolce amabile, poi vira decisamente sull’acido. Astringente, asciuga la bocca. citrica, un sacco di frutti rossi , ha anche un dolce che si situa a metà tra miele e melassa. Finale improvviso, retrolfattivo che ricorda le fermentazioni miste delle fiandre.

Bottle, 0.5. Brown murky with good yeast dregs if you let it sit. The quality of this product varies a lot, depending not only on the batch quality, as it is exceptionally sensitive to at what point you drink it and how it’s been handled. The one I’m having is really pea/asparagus- tainted, yeasty with some phenolic/bad alcohol vibes. Under that a really musty ripe banana, sweet malts, juniper. It’s hard to rate something this volatile, but this is what I feel about this one. I’ll probably average it out when I get a better sample to try.
