3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium brown and copper body with a light khaki colored head. Teh aroma is definitely plums with some cheap red wine. There is also a little hint of bubblegum and toasted carmel. The taste has some light notes of toffee and peaches. There is also a little bit of good tobacco. A nice subtle dunkel that is very smooth, especially for the big abv. Thanks oh6gdx.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(BBE 4/07) Dark red-brown colored, little lasting yellow head. Aroma is nicely sweet with chocolate, caramel and some bready rye tones, not very LapinKulta-aroma. Medium bodied. Flavor is also sweet with caramel and mild chocolate, lemon comes up in aftertaste with some bitter hops and mild alcohol. Positive surprise for LK.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled, thanks oh6gdx! Dark amber, small creamy head. Aroma of caramel and grass. Medium bodied with syrupymouthfeel. Caramel dominates a much more powerful beer than it’s lighter cousin. Low bitterness. Not bad at all for a Lapin Kulta.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Bottled 0,33L.
Dark brown color, slightly "dirty" with a little fizz. Adherent head of good persistence. Aroma of roast malty, burned wood and ash. Mellow and coolness taste with discreet fizz. Elevated alcoholic content with determined and extended bitter on the end.
Thanks to mabjork for this beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
courtesy of oh6gdx - slightly hazy dark reddish-amber colour, fine stable pale beige foam leaving a nice lace; slightly toasty and malty nose, unclean aroma of caramel and flowers; sweet, heavy and quite full-bodied, some weird bitterness; the finish shows more malty notes but is quite short and a bit watery - not bad at all but chaotic
