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.

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

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.

Kaatuu lasiin kauniin tummanruskeana ja isokuplaisella melko pienellä vaahdolla. Haju on maltainen ja joulumausteinen. Tiettyä pihkaisuuttakin on joukossa. Maku on todella tasapainoinen, kuivatun hedelmäinen, aniksinen, hieman havuinen ja pientä mausteisuuttakin tuntuu joukossa. Suutuntuma on melko täyteläinen ja tasapainoinen. Kokonaisuutena hieno suomalaisolut, joka tänä vuonna maistuu paremmalta kuin vuosi sitten (makuaistin kehitystä?).

high_on_hops (777) - Burlingame, California, USA - DEC 28, 2012
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

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.
