ZodiacM (757) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2015
Uit de fles (0,5l) geschonken. Mijn 1e Finse bier. Schenkt een mooi donkerbruin bier. Aromas van mout, caramel, hout. Smaak is lekker kruidig: mout, caramel, hout en een kruidige smaak die ik niet thuis kan brengen (jeneverbestak?). Een zeer prettig drinkbaar kruidig bier, zeker geschikt voor in de wintermaanden.

nazzty (1212) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2015
No, not very good. Uncomfortably sour flavors that do not mix with the caramel from the malt.

NosirIwont (2309) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2015
Bottle. 7.3%. Best before 01.05.16. Pours a cloudy/murky reddish amber/brown, with a tan head. Great lacing. Sweet, (dark) fruity aroma. Light spicy note and a roasted hint as it warms. Further warming brings out a hint of... chlorine? Same flavour, sans the chlorine, with a bitterness in the background, the latter coming out in the finish; liquorice. Lingering mild alcohol burn. Soft palate. Overall good. A wee bit cloying in the long run, but otherwise well-balanced. 24.11.15.

Dark brown color with minimal white head. Strong juniper nose with dark fruits and malts. Sweet caramel and fruity taste with nice hops bite in the end. Recommended, especially in winter! Captures the essence of winter, very nice

Mild i humlen og ikke ret meget sødme i den. Den kunne godt have været bedre i eftersmagen.
