rickgordon (3851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2006
Bottled. Clear dark copper colour. Big malty, caramelly nose with suggestions of toffee. Super smooth mouthfeel, with quite a lot of caramelly maltiness and a dash of chocolate. The finish is light light roasty and very dry. Very well crafted beer, yet a bit subdued.

TET (2460) - Kaarina, FINLAND - MAR 20, 2009
Copper brown beer with small, velvet, beige head. Aroma is pleasant, exotic fruits, some roasted malts ja pine needles from hops. Flavour is quite strongly bitter, roasted, quite dry, slightly fusty and lot of pine needles. Nice to drink with balanced and low carbonation. Aroma was promised fruitfull and fresh beer but flavour was too compromised and fusty. Not bad beer but I have a feeling that this could has been better.

Miksu (5039) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - APR 13, 2009
0.5 l bottle from Alko. Dark reddish amber color. Sweetish, caramelly and toffeish aroma with lemony and grassy hops. The flavor is caramelly, biscuity, fruity and hoppy with lemony hops and bitter finish. Rounded palate. Tasty beer although a bit too caramelly for my taste.

stunetii (90) - Bergen, NORWAY, NORWAY - AUG 14, 2011
Purchased at systembolaget in Goteborg sometime in the middle of April, 2011. Overall, this is a very robust ale, with good body and lots of flavor that definitely favored the hoppy side. Pours with a deep, dark amber color and a medium-sized off-white head. The lacing is very dense and sticky: the appearance is excellent. The aroma is reminiscent of pine, fruits (plums perhaps), and a hint of caramel. The mouth feel is somewhat creamy. The is taste is relatively complex: a bit herbal and fruity in the start, with a distinct bitterness in the finish that lingers on for a bit too long. A very good ale and one that I would buy again.

7stern (555) - Bromma, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2012
Dark amber, little hazy, small white head. Caramel and malt aroma. Malt sweetness apparent in the taste, some bread and sufficient bitterness. Good easter beer, but wasn’t it better last year?
