tmrmwel (1108) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark amber with an airy head. Aroma is roasted malts and grain, with kandi, juniper and anise. Oily body with soft carbonation. Flavour is sourish malts with juniper, anise, burned wood and camphor, as well as woody notes of old tree roots. Disappointing.

Beerheart65 (1065) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 10, 2012
Aroma is full and nuanced. Roasted licorice, citrus, pine, dark chocolate, roasted toffee. Dark red/brown to black. Beige head leaves lacing. Taste has same elements as aroma but not as much roasted, coffee also, pine flavor in finish, full and round, dry finish. A really good finnish beer that I can warmly recommend.

My first Finnish beer. The beer pours a hazed copper colour with a very thin white head. The aroma is Juniper, caramel, raisins, and yeast. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is sweet, smoky with caramel and molasses sweetness, and a smoked wood aftertaste. This is definitely a winter warmer and the alcohol is slightly noticeable in the aftertaste

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - DEC 14, 2010
Bottle 0,5 l. Darkish amber, thick off white or beige head. Nose has lots of herbal hops, full DIPA style nose with maybe some juniper deep down, but could be hops only. Malty background. Flavor is very nice with double IPA style hoppiness and thick malty background, maybe a tad too sweet and sticky. Had I not known this was flavoured with juniper, I wouldn’t have guessed. Fits well with the fresh and big hoppiness. Very nicely balanced and easily drinkable, yet a delicious treat.
