2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle (K Kamppi, Helsinki)
Deep reddy brown, loose off-white head. Sweet caramelly aroma, has that "red" feel to it. Strangely there’s an odd cheesiness to the aroma. Watery palate, just a bit sweet, some fizzy carbonation. Pleasant rich caramelly grains in the body. I can kinda see where the cheese came from in the aroma too, but it’s not as obvious in the taste. Pleasant dark huskiness and gentle caramelly sweetness in the finish. Easy to dismiss, but not actually that bad.

Mahogany brown and small head but leaves some lacing as descending. Some roasted flavors coming to my nose with nuts and sweet chocolate. Taste has some rye bread type of flavor and sweet chocolate and nuts. Surprisingly good especially after having warmed up a little.
