Pours clear brown with a thick but fading tan head. Aroma and taste of caramel, nuts, with a sort of plastic edge to it. Sweet taste fades into a grainy finish.

Una bock onesta. Scarsa allolfatto, il dolciasrto del malto, con note caramellate, ben si evidenzia. Carbonatazione moderata e corpo medio (avrei preferito qualcosa di pi). Finale abbastanza modesto, il sapore non il suo forte. Per una birra industriale, che si compra al supermercato, pu risultare quantomeno passabile. ----- A bock honest. Poor sense of smell, the dolciasrto malt, with caramel notes, is well noted. Moderate carbonation and medium body (I would have preferred something more). Final sufficiently small, the taste is not his forte. For an industrial beer, you buy at the supermarket, it may be at least passable.

Bottled@vPBFIII. Deep amber colour, small creamy off-white head. Aroma is caramel, fruits and some alcohol. Flavour is fruity, toffeeish, bready malts in a quite balanced way. A bit alcohol giving a warming touch as well.

Those italians are some rascals... pours a light tan .. light wispy weak wristed foam .. . light annoying malts and pancake syrup .. . this beer needs thicker glasses, not enjoyable .. . . that white powder on the table looks like a good time. its bisquick.

Miksu (5007) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - DEC 4, 2013
0.75 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Dark amber color. Sweet aroma of raisins, caramel, toffee. Sweet bready, raisiny with licorice, cocoa nibs, warming alcohol and some herbal bitterness which grows towards finish. Medium to full body. Alcohol is not stingy but it gives this beer a weird bitter, acidic and drying finish.

mikkopen (891) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 9, 2013
750 ml bottle. Clear dark amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma of nutty, toasted malt, with fruity and caramel notes. The flavour is malty, with notes of nuts, caramel and dried fruits, and a mildly bitter finish. OK, but nothing special.
