3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from The Hoppy Loft. Beautiful dark brown body with medium head. Nose is spicy, malty. Taste is very different than what I expected, much more soapy and spicy. Texture very prickly and bubbly. Fast-popping finish. Not really my thing.

33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 18.06.2014
Aroma has resiny malt and some fruity tones. Feels slightly acidic. Flavour is malty with some resin, berries, and fruits. A bit thin and the flavour feels short, but I like the resiny notes here.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2013 Bottled 330ml@Beer Hunters
Deep ruby color, small beige head. Piney, "menthol" aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Nutty, piney malty flavor. Excellent brew for this ABV and the best one from Mountain Goat. (7/3/7/4/14 3.5)
Deep amber color, small off-white head. Piney, flowery hoppyness with some caramel in the nose. Light-bodied. Front is a bit ryeish, some caramel, earthy hoppyness. Ok but not very interesting.

(33 cl bottle from Mikkeller & Friends; No BBD) Pours a clear, dark amber with little tan head that dissipates quickly leaving a bit of lace. Aroma is malty with a hint of floral hops. Oily texture, lively carbonation, medium body and a slightly toasted malt finish. Flavour is moderately sweet with a bittering hop finish.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2013 330ml bottle (Hilpea Haukki, Helsinki)
Bland dark lager aroma. Pretty bland dark lager taste. Hard to make an ale this bland, it must be modelled on boddingtons of some other shit. Meh.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A deep reddish orange coloured beer with a frothy white head. A light floral hop aroma, slightly soapy but not unpleasant and a background straw-like maltiness. Dry and fizzy mouthfeel. A mouth filling malt taste, after the hop dominated aroma this is a complete turnaround! Bittersweet caramel and roasted malt, nutty with a hint of smoky spice. The finish carries on with the bittersweet maltiness.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a 33cl bottle, pour a clear dark amber color with a small beige head that did not stay long. Aromas of light caramelized malts and light hops. Flavors of light caramelized malts, herbs, hops, with a light watery finished. Light body, light fizz, light bitterness. somewhat refreshing and tasty. Something is missing here.
