Bottle. Pours brown with a small off white head. Lovely aroma with notes of pomerans, syrup and chocolate. Taste is clean and quite "german" with dark malts. Aroma has got more "mämmi" over it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Thanks to Bart for bringing it from Finland. Sweet caramel with a lot of dirt. Deep gold color, nice tan head, and a good curtain of lace. Earthy flavor, mild sweetness, a bit of pepper. Thin body. Initially unimpressive, but gets better with each sip. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear dark cola brown beer. Caramel malty aroma is a bit roasty. Taste is sweet malty with some chocolate and a touch of The Mämmi. There’s also the liver casserole so you can tell this is from Laitila just by sniffing it. Maybe a bit softer taste and mouthfeel than last year’s version. Not bad but not a really good one either.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
5.2% tastes like a Finnish Easter dessert apparently. Dark brown amber pour with a beige head. The aroma is sweet malts with a touch of grain. The flavor is sweet, brown sugar, biscuit, molasses, caramel, corn starch? Very interesting stuff & at 2.90 euros easy to try out. A good beer for those who like sweet pastries.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Bright, clear amber brown. Nose of caramel, chocolate toffee, and more funky rye as it opened up (mammi). Sweet caramel flavor, nutty, orange peel, bready, peppery finish. Again, rye comes out a bit later. Interesting.
