The aroma is sweet with toasted malt and spice. The appearance is brown with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall I like it.

Pours raisin brown with a brownish tinted head. Thick foam, and nose of dried fruits and hints of alcohol. Aroma of the same notes, with a linger hop at the finish line. Strong alcohol presence.

Thanks to Andrè. Pours dark amber with a vanishing beige head. Aroma is definitely sweet, too sweet, and nutty. Flavourwise it sucks. Nothing to add. Not my beer.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2013 Bottle. Pours a deep reddish brown with little beige foam around the edges. A christmas spice aroma. Lots of orange peel as well as rye malts and sweet rye bread, tones of gingerbread. Taste is filled with christmas spices as well. Sweet rye malts and bread. Surprisingly dry and hoppy finish and aftertaste with tones of juniper as well. Palate is rather light with some carbonation. Fortunately not watery.

Never heard of Huvila before, so this an exciting new thing.
Unfortunately, it didn't meet my expectations. A bit disappointed.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet, Nettbutikken. ABV is 7.3%, KV 18.5%, 60 EBU. Deep brown colour, moderate to low off-white head. Malty aroma, a bit "unfresh", notes of caramel and stale jam. Fairly sweet and malty flavour, better than the aroma, plenty of caramel and brown bread notes, the juniper is hard to identify. Very moderate hops, but there is a little bitterness in the aftertaste, along with notes of brown toast. Drinkable beer, but probably not something I will buy again.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle from tiong (Matias). Quite red mahogany with a generous biege/brown head that unlike some others both appears and has staying power (unlike your first time). A very bready malt, almost chewy and wet, caramel with some toffee; low carbonation, quite sweet with a moderate to mild body, lots of caramel with a slight bitterness hop on the finish. A little too much sweetness for me though.

coffee, fruits, floral, clear, brown, minimal head, tan foam, lightly sour, medium sweetness, average carbonation, medium body, was really enjoyable for the first sips, but after a while it was rather hard to finish it.

Sample at SBWF 2012.
Amber with a small white. Aroma and taste of malt, toffee, dried fruit and some light notes of hops. Not that interesting.
