Pours clear dark copper with an off white head leaving some lacing. Aroma is malty, bready, almost like mšmmi, roasted malts and sweet. Thin body. Flavor is much like the aroma with nice bitterness. Finishes short with malty and bitter aftertaste.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0,5l can. Pours a brown beer with light brown/off white head that never disappears completely. That is definitely a plus. Caramel and grains aroma. More of the same in the flavour with some roasted malts. Just a bit sweet. Medium carbonated.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2010 Can 0,5l. Clear cola brown colour with thick white head. Easy to drink but still reasonably tasty dark beer with a good balance. Shame if Olvi has retired this. Not because this is great but they have none better.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml can (K CM, Kamppi)
Very deep red, frothy head. Dusty bready aroma, a touch sweet. Briefly tingly carbonation, but some of that tingle ties too closely to slightly bloody metallic mouthtaste and retronasals. Simply roasty palate, very malty, but withouth being too sweet or sticky bodied. Perhaps a bit thin Finish slightly burnt and bready, and just a tiny hint of dry papery hops. Iíve had this many times before, and for me it was a great choice for a sauna beer if the only thing accessible was finnish macros. This can falls short of what Iíve had before, I should try to see if bottles are available anywhere next time Iím in Finland, as I should rerate.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not too much carbonation but it hurts my tongue, but it really doesnít matter. Bitter finish and a bit in the mouth too, which I donít like so much - usually - but here it melts with the malt, so it tastes mostly natural. Roasty malt, but not too much at all. Maybe a bit some sour and a bit bitter yeast. Maybe the bitter-sweet-sourness is a bit annoying, sourness on the bottom and you remember the cluster after drinking (bitterness).
