3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy, dirty, reddish, fairly dark brown with a classy, beige foam crown. Aroma is rye bread, maltiness, slight tones of yeast, banana and caramel. Taste begins with house flavor: tones of banana and toffee with dark maltiness. The malts take the lead in the middle with some rye bread. Grass and herbal tones in the finish. Palate is a bit light and thin, very carbonated. An alright dunkel, but out of Finnish dunkels, I’d pick Stallhagen’s over this.

Bottle. Dark brown, cloudy, small to average and fully diminishing light brown head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma, caramel, faint fruitiness and bread. Medium, malty and sweetish flavor, faint fruitiness, some caramel and some bread. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, some caramel, faint bread and hoppyness, faint alcohol. Sweetish dunkel, alcohol little bit dries the finish. OK but really nothing special.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown color and average carbonation. Medium body with lightly roasted but very malty flavor. Very well balanced beer. Easy to pair with basic food like smoked salmon or pork chops.
