Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 16, 2009
Pint plus bottle pours red black with a very lacing head, lace sheets. The aroma is sweetness, wood, juniper, and some floral notes. The flavor hits with the juniper and malt sweetness right up front, some peat, some yeast. One of the better juniper flavored ales I’ve tried. Serious palate that seems to carry everything rather well. Overall, I like it pretty well.

Bottle from Alko. Dark brown beer with beige head. Aromatic, hoppy and spicy aroma. Bitter taste has roasted malts, chocolate, salty licorice and some features which reminds me of Jägermeister. Not for beginners this one.

Caramel, toffee, and dark fruits in the aroma. Malty flavor, with toffee and caramel. Alcohol dryness in the finish. I had never heard of this beer and didn’t know what to expect, but this is really, really good.
