3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2013 Looks liquidised bread indeed, and smells of bread, hops, sour-sweet, as if expecting black-ipa, all in a medium way. Taste is sour rye... carbonation kicks in with slight watery side, accompanied with chokeberry, in the end rubbery not. Rye overall lets itself be known through most phases described, but perhaps closer to bottles end sour note lingers without an adittional taste accompany?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
This earthy and bitter rye beer delves into leafy, fall-like rusticity for a compelling quencher.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the cloudy coppery brown.
-Carbonation is too low to make this flavor profile shine.
-Drinkability and character coexist nicely in this one though.
-Rye malt flavors aren’t as well developed as in their Rukki Kuningas.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle. Dark brown colour with average to huge, firm, frothy to macropore, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white to beige head. Bready, toasty, dark malty and minimally herbal aroma, a touch of caraway. Taste is dry, bready dark malty, hints of dark bread, pumpernickel, cautious hints of treacle; way too fizzy carbonation.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown, blackish beer with a massive tanned, bubbly head on top. Aroma of sweet fruits. herbal rye influences and a tad roast. Flavor is sweet, some red fruits in there, elements of the rye and some toastiness as well. Quite enjoyble, medium carbonation and short, light sweet finish. Pretty good.
