Draught @ Pikkulintu
Nice, smoky aroma with malty tones and berries. Also some odd sulphur tones. Flavour has smoked wood, malty tones, some berries and ashy tones. Confusing; smoky tones are nice but malty ones are not. Also some peaty tones, licorice and hebal notes occur at the end of the glass.

Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter.

Medium body, creamy texture, lively/soft carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Spicy and kinda candyish, but well-balanced and pleasant (and fitting for a winter brew).

Good. A bit thin perhaps in the end. A beer to drink a boring winter Sunday but not necessary on Christmas table
