popery (1850) - 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.

mmahut (1776) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle. Very dark amber body, clear ruby against the light. Aroma has dark fruits, almost dried fruits, such as raisins. Toffee, candi sugar syrup, but well balanced. Light touch of alcohol. Weak woody in the background. Taste has medium caramel sweetness, medium earthy bitterness, little bit harsh in the after taste. Body is full to medium, medium carbonation, light oily texture.

wchesser (1774) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Deep mahogany color. Belgian yeast nose with a lot of caramel. Taste follows. Finishes sweet. Very much like a Belgian dubel all around. Kind of dubel meets winter warmer. Good with enchiladas with chimayo red chili. Expensive but that’s Finland for you.
