750ml bottle (Kuikka, Helsinki) - shared with Mirjukka - thanks!
If this is a scotch ale, I’m a dutchman. Deep orangy red, brief fizzy head. Winey grapey aroma, some apple and raisin. Fizzy palate, sweet and thin, almost watery. More yeast adds a bit of apple. Quite alcoholic for 8%. Sweet and a bit slushy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, 750ml from Hopduvel Warehouse, Ghent. Dark amber to chestnut with white head. Some darker roasted malts lead the way in a relatively simple but pleasing beer. A little woodiness in the malt with just a touch of smokiness, there appears to be some Belgian yeasty spicing, quite possibly the effect of the yeast and a little greenish hop, but in general this is about the maltiness. The strength doesn’t really show through. Very nice.

quite lively beer that came out by itself as i got the cap off. no big spill though, and pouring made it relax. clear dark amber, smooth but a bit fluffy at first light brown head.
malty, nutty, dark fruity, mild spicy aroma.figs, blue berries, cardemom, mild alc aroma.
flavor is fruity, moderately boozy, mild to moderatly spicy, flavor is malty, ever so slighlty mild blue berry sourish, mild nutty, well blended. spices could be cardemom.
comes off as a very well brewed well rounded brune beer, of the not-so-sour kind.
