Colour of copper. Aroma of malt and cardboard. Nothing else to say about the taste either. It’s been years since I had this this and it is actually better this time.

Can from Tbone, thanks! Amber color. Grainy perfumed flavor with caramel and apple. Alcoholic. No specific aroma. Keeps the alcohol addict happy.

Bottle@Home. Caramel, metallic, alcoholic and thinnish. High gravity sugar beer without the water. Ideal beer for alcoholics? Was that the idea?

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Copper coloured. Vapour of sweet malt and alcohol. The taste of liquor is distinctive in both flavour and finish. Sweet and alcoholic. I imagine this is the beer some of the characters in Arto Paasilinna’s books drink. (330ml bottle from Alko in Hätta, Finland. Shared 29.apr.09 at beer session in Tromsø)

Great in taste - like all the karhu beers. Unfortunately the alcohol shines through way too much.
