Miksu (4938) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - NOV 17, 2009
0.75 l bottle from Alko. Dark slightly hazy reddish brown color. The aromas of citrusy-piney hops, chocolate, nuts, warming alchol and hint of raisins. Bittersweet flavor with citrusy-piney hops, chocolate, nuts and raisins. The finish is long, hoppy, slightly spicy and slighlty yeasty. Full bodied and very warming palate with hop resins in the finish. Nice balance between chocolate and american hops. Belgian and spice character is not obvious, but I think it makes this better.

Tap @ Ørsted Ølbar, Cph.
Pours clear deep red with a small, creamy, white head. Fine lacing. Aroma is quite hoppy, sweet, Nelson Sauvin?, coriander, light cinnamon and fresh-cut grass. Some yeasty notes of dried fruits as well. Medium carbonation, fine creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is quite weird, malty sweet, quite a lot of fresh hoppiness and light spiciness. Some chocolate, yeast, sap, pine. Weird and unbalanced, but still kinda attractive.

(Bottle, 0.75 l, from Alko Arkadia) Poured deep red with brown notes and clear. Medium sized, whizzy and lightly tan coloured head. Aroma was dominated by hops but also clear notes of spices and dark fruits were present. Body was full with quite fizzy carbonation. Tasted of malts, spices, hops, bitterness, salty liquorice and dark fruits. Sweet, spicy and bitter aftertaste. The hoppiness (or was it the spices uses) surprised.
