2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Pours deep reddish amber with a very sparse, off-white head. Taste is mildly bitter, quite sweet. Palate has a medium to full body, surprisingly a bit thin and watery mouthfeel. Aroma has lots of unbalanced spices, warming alcohol, malts.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Poured very dark colour with a beige head. Aroma is quite interesting mix of herbs and fruits, feels like something that grows just outside a very green forrest. Flavour is kind of the same with some earthly vegetables there in too.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.33 l bottle from Alko. Slightly hazy dark amber color. The aromas of clove, pepper, dark caramel and hint of milk chocolate. Sweetish toffeish flavor with clove, pepper, dark caramel, milk chocolate, licorice and honey. Clearly tastier and more balanced than the lower alcohol version. But still, the spiciness feels a bit simple.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle. Light brown head, diminishes fast. Dark red color. Very sweet aroma with banana, toffee, hint of chalk. Watery palate. Flavor doesn’t follow with the sweetness. Slightly sour, chalkiness, some apple. Bland. Unbalanced.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330 ml bottle. Finland.
Dark reddish brown colour with small light tan head.
Red wine, mild alcohol, berries, roasted malt and sugar in aroma.
Roasted malt, rye bread, some mild hops, some alcohol, berries and sugar in flavour.
Not the worst Nokian brew. Quite the opposite.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Deep rubyish brown colour with mediumsized foamy brown head. Aroma is shitloads of liquorice, mild caramel malts, some burnt sugar, and some toasted and spicy notes. Flavour is liquorice, a bit toasted, slight notes of burnt sugar, mild alcohol and spices. A rather pleasant Xmas seasonal.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark brown beer with quite weak and beige head. Aroma is roasted, some vegetables, hint of syrup and honey. Flavour is similar than aroma, roastiness, some sweetness and ryebread, spicies; quite simple taste and not too roasted. Smooth and pleasant to drink, however, quite light. Quite balanced, but uninspirating, vegetables should be hidden better.
