Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2010
Brown-bronze, shiny and dark. Aroma is earthy, rich, and rusty. Palate is powdery, leaving a dry feeling on the tongue. Lots of rye everywhere. Interesting and odd. The outstanding feature is the strange sensation of the dry rye on the tongue.

KnutAlbert (6118) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 17, 2012
On tap at Crowbar. Sweet, herbal, quite complex, but this is far from a Sathi. Too sweet, they could have made much more out of this.

Brandman (2098) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2013
Amber body offwhite head. Aroma has caramelly malt, sweet rye, spices and nuts. Quite easy, I don’t get the juniper. Alcohol is well hidden. Good, but this doesn’t interest me much.

hirigalzkar (2314) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours red-brown with a fast dissapearing off white head. Notes of juniper berries, cream. Quite heavy stuff! Spicy at first, then the maltiness takes over; caramel, burned syrup, dark bread. The hops has the character of red orange. Juniper is shown in the aftertaste. Soft carbonation. Smooth, creamy texture. Interesting but a bit too much in the long run.
