Bottle @ Olutravintola Pikkulintu, 11/2013. Quite much different than the original Siperia. Interesting whiskey aromas and flavours and less bitterness than regular Siperia. I haven’t been the biggest fan of whiskey barrel "spoiled" beers but found this very enjoyable!

From a trade with tiong-thanks, Matias! Very dark black core with some translucency at edges. Big nose of soy and molasses that fades to some bourbon and oak. Flavor the same plus very dark roast but not too bitter coffee and considerable ash on a long finish. Not very viscous bit maybe just the barrel and whiskey thinning, but I am nit-picking. This is top notch stuff...very reminiscent but falls just short of BA Yeti.

Pours pitch black color with a small off-white head. Aroma of dark chocolate, vanilla, some bourbon notes, dark roasted malts and hops. Flavor of roasted malts, caramel, some bourbon and vanilla, hoppy dark fruits and chocolate. Very nice.

[Thanks to oh6gdx]. 50cl bottle. Black colour with minimal tan head that quickly dissapears. Aroma is toasted malts, red fruits, black berries are present, ripe fruit, slightly smoky, wood notes and light bourbon hints. Flavor is similar as aroma, is dominated by toasted or burnt malts. Also noticeable is the bourbon notes, alcoholic in spite of it has ’only’ 8%ABV. The aftertaste is malty, fruity, wood and bourbon notes with a very good duration.. Carbonation is low. Body is high. Texture is oily and dense on palate.

50 cl bottle @ home. Bottled 08.05.2010, BBE 08.05.2020
Aroma has sweetish bourbon notes, some roastiness and woody notes. Flavour is quite strong on woody notes with bourbon, vanilla and licorice. A sting of alcohol and whiskey in the finish, which feels a bit harsh. Too strong on whiskey, which does not completely fit to the flavour bouquet.

Completely different than the original SIPERIA, which I find better. Despite of all that, this is a very enjoyable beer. And perhaps the best ’milestone’ beer I’ve had. Cheers, Hannu!
8+4+8+4+17 = 4.1

Draught @ Pikkulintu
Ok, perhaps the last change to have this from tap – still got one bottle at home though. Aroma is rather nice with bourbon tones, sweet vanilla, some wood, licorice and hints of coffee. If aroma can be sticky – this is. At least it is syrupy. Flavour is rather sweet and bourbon really stands up. Also some herbal tones, licorice, vanilla and licorice. Aroma was rather promising, but flavour is just too sweet and too strong on bourbon. I hoped that this would have settled during these years. Feels sticky even after the first sip. Still I find the bottle version better.
5+9+8+4+15 = 4.1

@ Basunen: Trevlig len doft av kaffe och lakrits. Fin balans mot fattonerna. smaken är stor med mycket fat men ändå trevligt rostade toner och fyllig lakrits. Len och harmonisk. Mycket gott

2010 500ml bottle from Tiong. Black with a very thin brown head that almost disappears. Anise, roasted malts, bittersweet, bit of prune. Mild carbonation, full body, bitter at first, then some alcohol and anise burn, nice long burnt ending. Very happy to gotten to try this.

VastActiv (2768) - Oulu, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2012
Draught at Pikkulintu, 0.4l. Color black, some glimpses of red. Aroma bourbon and vanilla. Flavor with chocolate and vanilla, too much alcohol. In my opinion, worse than casual Plevna Siperia.
