4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 c&c from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. It’s a 2012 purchase, so I’m assuming it is not the 2010. Pours dark ruddy copper with a 3 finger foamy/creamy beige head. Aroma is strong - suggesting cola and peach with some decent raspy malt underpinning. Full bodied. Now I’m getting anise and something like creamy chocolate. This is amazing ale. It’s full of dark fruits and other things I can’t recognize. It’s extremely tasty. Finishes a bit on the sweet side, but with the flavor, and I’m assuming hop, that’s not really bothersome. Drinks way too easy.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled (from Alko, Vaasa). Deep ruby red colour with a mediumsized beigeish brown head. Aroma is toffee, dry fruits, mild spices and some caramel as well. Mild alcohol too, as it warms up a bit. Flavour is a bit spicy, some peppermmint, alcohol, toffee, sweet fruits, plum and mild liquorice. Gives a warm feeling, but not too much alcohol noteable in the flavour. Brilliant beer to have after bacon’n’eggs (a.k.a. breakfast beer).
