3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Medium high but unfortunately quickly disappearing off-white fluffy head. hazy dark red brown body. Anise dominated aroma of prune plum caramel and something prickling your nose. Relatively sweet barley malt caramel vineous anise spicy flavor with a light citrus touch. High carbonation long bittersweet aftertaste. Well, I’ll make another attempt to persuade my family to drink beer instead of wine with the Christmas food. I’ll bring a couple of bottles of this for myselft in the attempt.

Draught @Pikkulintu. Poured murky brownish with thin head. Salmiac (salty liquirice), anis and wood in aroma. Flavor similar, with strong bready notes and some sweetness I can´t place. Weird, but I liked the anise/salmiac thing in it.

Hazy, murky color, tiny head. Licorice, anise and Christmas spices in the nose. Medium-bodied. Odd yeasty mix of anise, caramel and Christmas spices. Weird a bit tart flavor mixed with anise and spices is just too much. Can’t finish a pint.

(Draught at Pikkulintu, 20111203) The beer poured brown and cloudy. Its head was medium sized and almost white. Aroma had aniseed, yeast, malts and sweetness. Palate was medium bodied and quite dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were aniseed, malts, yeast, sweetness, tartness, hops and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty, spicy and bitter. Not bad but too yeasty.
