3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 bottle. Very dark crimson color with a brown tinge to it; small, brownish head with quite good retention. Strong smell of dark malts, fruits, liquorice, and some roast aromas. Malty taste as well, again quite a lot of liquorice and dark fruits; mostly sweet with some bitter tones shining through. Unexpectedly the body is light, texture smooth, and carbonation soft. Medium long finish, rather sweet with a soft hop, biscuit bitterness. Overall quite a good beer but a tad watery for my taste and has too soft a flavor.

Bottled 500ml K-Kamppi. Dark brown-ruby color, decent beige head. Chocolate, cocoa, yeast in the nose. Light to medium bodied. Some dark chocolate, cocoa powder, European hops. Shorty finish. Nicely balanced brown ale which just needs a bit more ABV.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle from the brewery’s shop. Dark brown color with a hint of red, almost nonexistent tan head. Very malty aroma with biscuit, some roastiness and notes of licorice and resin. Taste is somewhat bitter. Medium body that gets a bit watery by the end, long softly bitter finish. Not the most awesome brown ale I’ve had but quite good. Fuller body and a bit more intense aroma and it would be.
