330ml bottle (Alko, Helsinki)
I’ll separate Anna’s comments, so that if I get a nastygram from the brewer, he can direct them to her, not me. "Green apple - that’s a brewing flaw, ... ewww that’s not very nice". I get a bit of the green apple, but some sour raisins, some acetone or other solvent. Smooth palate, gentle carbonation. Sweet caramelly body, quite a waft of alcohol goes up the nose. More belgian than English, got that heady sweetness. More apple in the finish. Does cover actual alcohol, but alas has replaced that with something solventy. Ewww, don’t let it warm, it gets worse the warmer it gets. It’s a good job Ares left, otherwise he’d continue his rant about us only drinking bad beer.

TBone (12992) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 28, 2013
Bottled 330ml Alko. Dark amber-brownish color, tiny beige head. Sweetish aroma of wood and caramel. Medium-bodied. Some alcohol in the front. Then raisins, some toffee, bready malty. Sweetish and a bit alcoholic. Belgian dubbel/quadrupel style. At least it is certainly a winter beer.

330 ml bottle. Hazy yellowish brown colour, thin and quickly dissipating off-white head. Sweet malty aroma with dark fruits and a whiff of alcohol. The flavour is sweetish malty, with raisins and notes of nuts, and a warm nutty finish. Not bad.

Brown hazy beer with short, thin, beige head. Sweet aroma has malt, raisins, yeast. lots alcohol in flavor that is malty, low carbonation, medium body, malty finish is medium long, palate is towards oily. OK but bit too much alcohol and bit too murky for my taste.
