3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Cask at St. Urho’s Pub Portteripäivät’13) The beer poured deep dark brown. Its head was small and white. Aroma had sweetness, roasted malts, berries and alcohol. Palate was full bodied, oily and dry with low carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, roasted malts, burnt malts and bitterness. Afteraste was roasty and bitter. A bit weird and too sweet.

I suspect this beer I tried was beyond its peak freshness. Pour was exceptionally flat at flavor had strong oxidation (metallic taste). Aside from that it was nice with chocolate and sweet alcohol flavors.
