Nice amber color, with a little brown head. Head disappears rather quickly. Taste isn’t that special, malts are presented nicely. Smooth texture, but still somewhat strong beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml can (? Supermarket, Helsinki)
Very much like a watered down version of the old Olvi Sandels Tumma export 4.3%. Similar rich roast, but mostly lacking the slightly stale coffee-groundsy, and with very little hint of the malty backbone Olvi used to put in their dark beers. I wouldn’t be surprised if this was just a dodgy rebadge with a cheaper formula.
Yes, that was almost a copy of my 4.3% rating, that’s because this is a copy of the 4.3% beer, and not worth wasting effort on. Oooh, 0.3 off the ABV, and 0.3 off my score - what a coincidence!

Can 568ml @ Helsinki / Porvoo. Nut brown pour with a large and very durable, light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt and light caramel. The taste follows the nose. Slightly watery mouthfeel. A bit of hop bitterness in the end. Enraptured good of a 4% beer.
