Mora2000 (6055) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2011
Picked up during a trip to Baton Rouge. Not my first Sahti, but my first Sahti that was brewed in Finland. Excited to try this one, as it is also my first beer from Finland. The beer pours a dark brown-orange color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the caramel and toffee malt. I don’t get the juniper in the aroma. That being said, the juniper is present in the flavor. I also get some smoked malt and and toffee, as well as a little bit of chocolate. All of the flavors meld well together and make an enjoyable beer. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

(50cl bottle thanks to Mora2000) clear gold-orange with a ring of fine tan bubbles. Nose of nuts, brown sugar, and rich. Taste of brown sugar, toasty caramel, raw sweet grains, mild oxidation but welcome in this case, and a great palate linger.

Bottle at Dans courtesy of Aaron, thanks man! Poured a deep, clear, brown with a red tint. Smell is big red licorice, dark fruit, sweet malt, and caramel. Taste is earthy, dark fruits, caramel, candi sugar, and a light bitterness on the finish. Very interesting and a lot going on, quite different. Mouthfeel is thin, with medium carbonation. Overall, a pretty cool beer.
