3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. An unclear dark golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of peaches, cognac, caramel, fruit, malt, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, over ripe fruits, alcohol, cognac, alcohol, and hops, leading to a bitter finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of maneliquor. Pours a hazy yellow with a dense and frothy shaving foam style head leaving quite some lacework. Very funky, Bretty nose with some fruity hops up there. Rich body, solid malt base, again massive funky Brett, slightly tart and a shitload of hops. Not so much Cognac though - I guess the barrel aging all turned into Brett! Nothing like what I expectec, but quite interesting indeed. 030612

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle(Hilpa Hauki, Helsinki)
Viscous pour, hazy orange. Nice fruity aroma at first, some pleasant woodiness too. Smoothish palate, but crisp carbonation. Sweetish palate, a little sticky. Slips down easily, not aggressive, but definitely not pulling its punches either. Malts are big and sweet, hops are bold and fruity. Finish mostly predictable after that, but that’s not a bad thing. Some bitter bite too. Yeah, didn’t mind having this all to myself.

33 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere.
Pours dark mahogany color with a small head. Aroma is a bit tangy and sweet, caramel and faint vanilla. Flavour of sweet fruits, wood and some caramel. Weird but decent.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l, at Hilpeä Hauki, 20131001) The beer poured amber and hazy. Its head was small and white. Aroma had cognac and malts. Palate was medium bodied and dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, wood, cognac, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, woody, hoppy and bitter. A gimmick and not a good one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy amber brown body with lasting head. Pine and tropical notes on the nose, mouthfeel is a little dull which should be from the barrel aging, an ipa and a iipa doesn’t need barrel aging I reckon. Still it was drinkable.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml bottle. Thick and hearty in the glass, like a meal in a glass. Very little in the way of foam, just a scattering of bubbles around the edge of the galss. Hazy and murky, a deep muddy orange colour. The aroma is knock your socks off wow with a big smack in the face of hops. Full creamy texture in the mouth with a numbing aftertaste on the palate. The high alcohol takes over the hops and you can taste more alcohol that anything else, still good though. One to savour and tread carefully with.
