No, not very good. Uncomfortably sour flavors that do not mix with the caramel from the malt.

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.

Tasting at beer 14. Aroma has lots of malt and juniper. Rasting is light at first. Then you get the darker malts coming through.

Mild i humlen og ikke ret meget sødme i den. Den kunne godt have været bedre i eftersmagen.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy dark brown color, average sized off white head. Aroma of caramel, nuts, chocolate, malt, sugar and some herby touches. All in all, very nice. Taste was, however, a major letdown. Dark fruits are most obvious, than some caramel, nuts, herbs and alcohol. It doesn’t sound bad, except for alcohol presence, but its kinda mild and without any real character. Medium body, soft carbonation. Mainly sweet taste, but with somewhat strong bitter finish. Aroma is great, and it’s very much drinkable, but it could’ve been awesome.

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
