SlackerMads (2678) - DENMARK - NOV 25, 2012
Bottle. Brown with off-white head. Aroma is sweet with a light sour cellulose thing to it. Otherwise notes of almonds, marzipan, malt, yeast, leather. Vinous. Taste is a bit watery at first but some alcohol sweetness kicks in. Notes of burnt caramel, plums, toffee, spices. Ends bitter. Interesting stuff that I need to try again.

esp0r (2646) - NORWAY - MAR 6, 2013
Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Pours brown with a small beige head with big bubbles. Smells of herbs, caramel, hints of roast and malts. Taste is moderate sweet, a strange mouthfeel made by some bitter herbs that tastes of green leaves and soil and bitter malts that i don’t like. This is not what i’m looking for in a beer

suurjuust (2636) - 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.

Brandman (2623) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2013
Amber body offwhite head. Aroma has caramelly malt, sweet rye, spices and nuts. Quite easy, I don’t get the juniper. Alcohol is well hidden. Good, but this doesn’t interest me much.

nihtila (2611) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2015
6.12.2013. Tiheä vaaleanruskea vaahto, hieman samea, tummanruskea olut. Tuoksussa lievää paahdetta, karamellia, ruista, tuntuu myös alkoholin lämpöä. Pehmeä, hieman karamellisen makea, ruismaltainen, yrttinen, melko täyteläinen, lopussa havuista (katajaista, kuten etiketti sanoo?) katkeroa. Alkoholikin hieman lämmittää, mutta ei maistu. Melko vivahteikas.
