2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. A clear brown beer with a small, beige head. The aroma has caramel and some dried fruits, as well as a roasted touch. Some notes of higher alcohol. It’s medium to full bodied, semi-dry and with a soft carbonation. Roasted malts, coffee and chocolate in the flavor, with a little bitterness. A messy one, going in too many directions at once, in a non-good way. 140228

Nice overall effort from this Finnish micro brewery. I’m rather fond of this one, even though it could use a little tweaking still.
