suurjuust (1221) - ESTONIA - FEB 5, 2012
Dark brown, off-white head. Nose is sweet malt, some hops and juniper notes. It all blends together very well and is a complex and pleasant harmony. Taste has a more pronounced bitterness, but that is balanced out by the slightly sticky sweetness. Juniper blends surprisingly well together with the hops. Medium bodied, gentle carbonation. Good stuff.

500ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a small off-white head that leave a thin lacing. Aroma is dark fruits and roasted malts with hints of hops. Taste is malty sweet with some roasted malt bitterness and a moderate hop bitterness with hints of dark fruit. Medium body and mild carbonation. This definitely satisfied my taste buds. Well done.

jercraigs (8070) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2012
2012-01-19. Brown body with a nice tan head. 3+ Modest aroma, dry dusty malt, interesting fruit character - juniper notes? Sweet toasty malt accents. 6+ Flavour is similar, dry malt light fruity juniper notes throughout, sort of a grainy undercurrent. 6+ Average bodied palate is surprisingly light for the abv. Okay, it doesn’t quite come together for me today, but it is decent.Bottle shared by JoeMcPhee

JoeMcPhee (8565) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2012
Deep amber pour with a bit of soft fruity character. A little bit minty with some nice peppery character. There’s a soft sort of peppery character with a nice bit of light ethanol. Moderate bitterness and a little bit of light fruit. Some nice peppery notes. There is a touch of honey and some nice lingering hop flavour. I like it.
