3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light brown, slightly hazy, beige head. Aroma of nutty, toasty, bready malt with a woody, earth, juniper note. Flavor is malt balanced--bready, a little toffee, slightly nutty, followed by a woody, dusty/earthy note with a moderate juniper character. They apparently did not use the traditional farmhouse Sahti yeast with this (no clove-like phenols, etc.), instead, its a pretty clean yeast. Overall an interesting, malty and rustic beer.

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.

Cloudy dark brown, small off-white head. Nutty aroma, some brown sugar. Spicy taste, some very strange notes I can’t define. Don’t like it very much. Medium body, creamy, soft carbonation. OK.

Aroma is slightly oxodated like sherry. Nice red hazy beer. Taste is slightly metallic some malty sweetness. Very strange beer, maybe a bad bottle…

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

My first Finnish beer pours dark & murky into the glass & offers a finger of foam that slowly fades to floating clumps. An interesting brew. With juniper berries I’m expecting something along the lines of gin, but dammit these guys are using juniper twigs so I’m not sure what to expect. I get ripe dark fruit, a hint of leather & a pleasing bitterness. It’s a tad eccentric & seems to be a little under rated here but i am really enjoying this. Recommended.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 50 cl. Hazy dark brown with some copper color with no head but small lacing. Notes of wood, burnt, coffee, chocolate, berries, juniper, spruce, herbs, roasty, pines. Interesting tasty beer with lot of different flavors. Feels like a crossing between an Ale and a Stout or Porter. Goes down pretty easy. Good brew.
