2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330 bottle. Yellow body and a white head. Malty and a bit sweet with a hint of tar and smoke. The body is way too thin to keep this interesting. They should have tried to make an Imperial Tar Porter or something.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
courtesy of oh6gdx - pretty clear amber-bronze beer with a poor head retention; a subtle yet well-present smokeyness, hints of cold fire and ashes; light to medium-bodied; some sweetness and with a light tartness; almost no bitterness; quite short finish with an elusive smokyness

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Strong aroma has lots of tar, then malting. Clear golden with short and thin head. Taste has caramel tar, malting and fruits in finish. Crisp but soft feel, medium body. Not bad. Tar is very much on top here which brings lots flavor. More body and thickness could be nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle. Somewhat smokey and spicy aroma and taste, not so much of the tar that is suggested by the name. Somewhat more tasty version of the plain Karjala.
