Bottle. High creamy long lasting good looking off-white head. Hazy dark red brown body. Powerful malt coffee hops aroma. Relatively sweet barley malt coffee liquorice flavor with a spicy note. Low carbonation. Long sweet and smooth finish. Alcohol level seems just right. Very pleasant to drink and certainly a nice surprise.

ogniskowicz (567) - POLAND - JAN 25, 2016
Aromat iglaków miesza się z ciastem karmelowym i leśnymi owocami. W smaku bardzo pełne, chlebowo-karmelowe, ale nieprzesadnie słodkie z mocną ziołowo-iglakową goryczką i mnóstwem owocowych posmaków (jeżyny, jagody). Dziwne, ale bardzo przyjemne piwo.

ZodiacM (511) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2015
Uit de fles (0,5l) geschonken. Mijn 1e Finse bier. Schenkt een mooi donkerbruin bier. Aromas van mout, caramel, hout. Smaak is lekker kruidig: mout, caramel, hout en een kruidige smaak die ik niet thuis kan brengen (jeneverbestak?). Een zeer prettig drinkbaar kruidig bier, zeker geschikt voor in de wintermaanden.

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

NosirIwont (2203) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2015
Bottle. 7.3%. Best before 01.05.16. Pours a cloudy/murky reddish amber/brown, with a tan head. Great lacing. Sweet, (dark) fruity aroma. Light spicy note and a roasted hint as it warms. Further warming brings out a hint of... chlorine? Same flavour, sans the chlorine, with a bitterness in the background, the latter coming out in the finish; liquorice. Lingering mild alcohol burn. Soft palate. Overall good. A wee bit cloying in the long run, but otherwise well-balanced. 24.11.15.
