3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap (Poseidon, Helsinki)
5 Slightly pulsy aroma, only a touch of smoke.
4 Deep red, brief head.
6 Pleasant rich malty taste, slight dark fruit sourness.
4 Rye only really comes through 10s after you swallow, and then the finish fills out beautifully, tons of rye, and decent smokiness..
13 So much a read-loaded beer. The aroma didn’t sell this at all, but the finish is lovely.
