Reddish brown hazy beer with lots of beige head. Aroma has sugary sweetness, rye, juniper, whiskey and alcohol. The flavor has dark bready malts, whiskey and sweetness. The finish is mostly alcoholic because the bitterness goes past so quickly. The palate is medium full and moderately carbonated. The alcohol starts tasting through towards the end of the glass more and more making it almost painful to drink. Still an interesting brew.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours a burgandy with a tan head. Taste slightly sweet, dark fruits possibly cranberries or juniper berries. I thought this was so so. I would not drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle ordered at CKDC. Date on bottle is March of ’08 and sampled today. Deep mahogany colour with a late-forming 1-finger beige head. The nose is similar to what you might expect from an English barleywine. British noble hops, vinous malts, brown sugar, juniper (duh), dried dark pitted fruits, and mild cocoa impressions. A bit more of the cocoa and brown sugary sweetness are apparent upon the first sip. Grassy and herbal hop notes, tobacco, juniper and figs/dates/dried dark fruit. The palate could be a little fuller, IMO, though the duration is long. I’m glad to have sampled this tasty brew. Kudos to Huvila and CKDC!

Dermi (628) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 10, 2011
50 cl, bottled. Pours cloudy red with a tiny white head. Aroma: Root cellar. Potato sack. Vegetables and herbs, hints of juniper. Nice. Tobacco. Nuts. Coffee and dark chocolate. Taste: Roasted malt. Nutty. Some sweetness, sensible coffee like bitterness. Palate: Medium bodied, a bit thin, oily, too. The aftertaste is almost exactly like in nut butter. Very interesting one.

Pours a deep caramel color with a short tan head. The aroma is lots a caramel malt and some dark fruit. The flavor is dark malts and caramel up front with some dark fruit and another flavor that must be the juniper in the background. It has a light body and a smooth, sweet finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is slightly oxodated like sherry. Nice red hazy beer. Taste is slightly metallic some malty sweetness. Very strange beer, maybe a bad bottle… ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
