Strong taste, smells and tastes like forest. The head is a bit disappointing. Not my kind of beer though.

Sweet and of course malty barley wine. Dark fruits, spices, it’s all there.

Poured medium amber with a small white head. Aroma of honeyed zesty sweetness, caramel malt. Medium body, flavour as a muted version of the aroma. Should be far more of a bold Viking to make some impact.

This smelled the part but was otherwise disappointing. And older bottle, this was flat, not just mellow. The flavor was good but kind of boring. Just not quite great.

mile (2988) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 12, 2013
Bottle. Light amber, cloudy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, light caramel, some barnyard and notes of plastic. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and some barnyard. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and light sourness with some barnyard and light alcohol. More like "Erik de Horrible".

Bottle at home
Almost clear copper body and ad off-white head. Aroma of sweet, slightly sour red fruit. Taste is herbal, maybe juniper berries, rather sweet bit with a bitter dry backtone (the berries). Decent body and carbonation.
