Bamsen78 (4811) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2016
Bottle. Pours hazy chestnut brown with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and caramel, with touches of vanilla and yeast. Sweetish flavour of malt and caramel, with fruity and estery notes and bitter, hoppy touches. Hints of tar and juniper. Bitter and estery aftertaste. A nice one, although the carbonation could be higher.

PabloZibi (21) - Radom, POLAND - APR 14, 2016
Tried on Warsaw beer festival (4th edition) as sahti. Medium aroma with juniper. Fine appearance but without head. Good taste but alcohol is a little too much noticable. Good bitterness. Nice aftertaste with some chocolate notes. Well, such a nice beer.

cokolwiek11 (299) - POLAND - FEB 23, 2016
Dark copper beer with low but little- bubbled head that stays very long with nice lacing on the glass. Complex aroma with malts (biscuits, dark caramel), fruit esters, hint of juniper and hint of hop. Taste: medium sweet, medium to high bitter, dark caramel, biscuit on front, some juniper, than hoppy finish. Palate: low to medium saturation, pretty full, oily beer. Gets smooth when it warms up. Overall: very nice, complex beer, have notes from quite a few styles like old ale, belgian dark ale, scottisch export etc.

Frothmeister (697) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2016
500ml bottle. In the cellar for about a year. Pours a clear dark copper with a tan head. On the nose burnt sugar, light earthiness, light molasses, herbal lozenges, and a light woody note. Taste wise, lightly sweet with brown sugar notes, light pine, and light molasses that heads into more of the same with a tinge of slightly bitter dark coffee, and some woody notes / pot (yup pot) in the bitter finish. It’s solid. I would buy it again.
