Bottle, 8.8%. BB 2003, 4 years ago. Slightly earthy aroma. Dark brown colour. The flavour is also quite earthy, with some sweet malt and a hint of pepper. Finishes with a little rough bitterness. Too old for me.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from a small shop on the south side of the south plaza where the buses come and go in Bruges. West of the red monstrosity. Pours really dark brown/black with a very foamy/cllingy beige/tan head. Mildly xmas spice aromas. Full body. Lots of flavor. Dark roasted malt and mixed spice. Creates a strong herb/spice sensation in the mouth. It’s a heavy beer. Not a great beer, but a very sturdy and acceptable beer. Lots of caramel. Lots of flavor -repeated.

330ml bottle - - Gallows Bird, Espoo
Beautiful deep red, luscious thick self-supporting creamy head. Rich mämmi and raisin aroma. Soft carbonation on the tongue. Initial spicy taste, but quickly a wave of very dry nuttiness - so dry it is almost papery. Aroma also shows the spice. A curious combination of the sweet, smooth, and sticky with the drying. Pleasant nutty finish. Covers 8.8% very well. Scores fairly well everywhere, but does not wow me. Definitely pretty good, just no wow.
