popery (1639) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 17, 2009
Sweet, malty and spicy with a tinge of juniper. I really like juniper and Sahti, so I just wish that there was a stronger juniper character if anything. The beer pours a purplish brown, translucent but quite dark, with a creamy off-white head. The aroma is spicy and malty with notes of hops and juniper. It’s more along the lines of an English Strong Ale with a bit of holiday spice. The malt has a really nice flavor, like a good barleywine. There are fruit notes, raspberries and plums, mixed with brown sugar and rum. The juniper is light and woody. The hops (or maybe it’s just bitterness from the juniper twigs) are relatively strong. There’s a fair bite in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is full and round. A very enjoyable little nightcap.

nihtila (1611) - 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.

Keg 0.25L glass. Pale head. Reddish coppery colour. Soft slightly thin junipery taste. At the end hoppy bite. Soft slightly berrylike taste. Some grassiness in the nose. Something is missing...
