33 cl, bottled. Pours hazy copper with a fine beige head. Aroma: Toffee, malt, wax. Hints of fruits. Taste: Medium sweet, some bitterness. Sour component. Sour milk. Not bad. Toffee and malt. Palate: Medium body, some bitterness. It’s decent strong ale, not my favourite style, tho.

Snifteriin lorahtaa punainen, ruskeahko olut valkoisella vaahdolla. Tuoksu on mieto, makeahko ja leipäisen maltainen. Maku on hieman makea, rusinainen ja leipäisen maltainen. Tuhti ja pehmeä suuntuntuma. Pienoinen pettymys niin hyvältä Lervigin panimolta.

Kaatuu lasiin mahonginruskeana ja utuisena, joka saa oluen näyttämään likaisen väriseltä. Vaahto on noin sormen paksuinen ja melko nopeaan katoava jääden kuitenkin ohueksi kerrokseksi oluen pinnalle. Hajussa on huomattavan paljon tummaa kuivattua hedelmää, etenkin rusinaa, mutta myös tuoretta päärynää. Makea, hieman marjainen mallaspohja tulee takaa myös esiin, mutta melko suoraviivainen brittiale tämä on tuoksun perusteella. Maku on vahvemman kuivatun hedelmäinen ja nyt rusina tunkee vahvemmin esiin. Makeaa toffeemaista mallastakin on reilusti joukossa, sekä pähkinäisyyttä, hiven jopa paahteista pähkinää. Hiven tuoreempaa hedelmäistä otetta on joukossa, mutta hyvin vähän. Suutuntuma on melko hiilihappoinen ja pistelevän humaloitu. Alkoholikin tuntuu hieman. Melko suoraviivainen olut, jossa on omaa twistiään eikä ole asetettu täysin perinteiseen muottiin. Alkoholi ei ihan täysin piilossa, vaikkei mikään älytön lämmike maun puolesta olekaan.

33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 14.08.2016
Aroma is malty with lots of toffee and hints of berries. Also some vanilla and baking stuff. Flavour has raspberries, some toffee, malty notes and caramel. Some fruity hops occur after a sip. Also some yeasty and worty notes at the middle of the glass. Quite odd and somewhat messy, but for some reason I seem to enjoy this.

mjs (4811) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 8, 2013
(Bottle, 0.33 l - BB 14.08.16, from Alko, 20131108) The beer poured brown. quite clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had malts, caramel, treacle and hops. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, molasses, caramel, sweetness, hint of hops and low bitterness. Aftertaste was malty, sweet and bitter. The strong malty body is a sign for aging potential and aging may tune down the sweetness which was a bit too intense now.
