3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught@Kaisla, Helsinki, 4.9% ABV) Dark cola color with a small head. Sweetish, grainy-malty aroma with berries and a hint of smoke. Sweetish berry (red and black currant), moderately burned flavor with lots of grainy malt. At least medium-bodied palate with quite high carbonation. Surprisingly full-bodied and malty for a dunkel, although it is quite grainy-sugary also. Some similarities to Saku Tume and German Doppelbocks, but in a milder package. A positive surprise.

(Bottle 50 cl) Dark brown with a tint of red. Tall - but collapsing - beige head. Extremely "dark" flavours of roasted malt with notes of both caramel and dark chocolate. Appears almost like a less potent Doppelbock. A very accessible and pleasant beer without much bitterness. 251002

Bottle: Deep amber coloured, big fluffy brownish head; aroma: coffee, vinous, roasted malts, traces of dried plums; slightly sweetish beginning, but hoppiness comes through in the finally dry taste; bitter-sweet finish; lacks a bit a fuller body, but all in all O.K., nothing more....
