oh6gdx (20216) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 16, 2009
Draught@HBF2009. Very deep rubyish brown colour, small brown head. Aroma is caramel malts, soome roasted notes as well as smokedwood. Mild nuttyness as well as fudge as well. Flavour is roasted malts, slight fruity notes and mild nuttyness. Served way too cold as the aroma and flavour open up only after it gets closer to room temperature.

omhper (19187) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 14, 2005
Bottled. Nearly black. Rich beechwood smokey aroma. Fairly sweet with medium body and notes of licorice. Perhaps the mouthfeel is a bit clean, but otherwise it very good and thoroughly well made.
