austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2009
Bottled. Dark copper, fluffy beige head. Good dark nutty aroma with quite strong herbal hops and toffee, even chocolate. Flavor is more of the same, nice hops (grass & some pine), nuttiness, little wood and cocoa, nicely balanced. Lingering herbal bitterness. Really smooth silky palate, perfect for the style. A great ESB, this one makes my easter alright.

Easter ale from 2013. On the bottle it says: Best before august 2013.

Rubyred-orange beer that are a little hazy.
Two finger high, white, head that leaves lacing on the glass.

Nose: Caramel malt, dried fruit, mango, orange marmelade and oak.
Taste: Caramel, brown sugar, toffee, dark fruit, spices and malt.

I’m supriced this taste so good! Great nose and likewise taste! Best before seven months ago - I don’t think so! This is delicious!

I would say it’s even better now than when I tried it when it was fresh at easter 2013...
