3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2014 Tap (SOPP2012, Turku)
Smooth mellow gently woody aroma, sweet and rich. Looks lovely, a rich rusty orange. Super smooth in the mouth, succulent, and with just enough carbonation to make the sweetness not too sticky. Lovely mellow bready vapours - clearly packing, but not boozy. Slips down so easily, one pint is most likely to be followed by another!
Rerate: Aged vertical
BB2012-11: 6:4:6:3:13=3.2, some raisin even in aroma, nice hoppy bitterness, clear, and beautiful.
BB2011-05: 6:3:7:4:14=3.4, more oxidised, still hoppy, has gone a little misty.
Looking forward to a 3-way vertical in a few years time!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Saimaan Luostari Dubbel) 330 ml bottle from jookos, thanks! Served into a tulip, ABV 7.5%
Amber coloured beer, with a clear body and a small and thin tan head sitting on top. Low retention, light lacing left on the glass.
Aroma has toffee, caramel, spices giving it an interesting touch.
Taste begins with the aforementioned spices, cardamon and coriander seeds, then caramel follows, toffee, ending with faint metallic notes that are not annoying in any case.
Thin on the body, with the carbonation on the low side.
Overall quite good, with a bit more body would be even better, maybe with stronger aroma as well. Still, very drinkable with the spices on the right quantity.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle as a gift from Espoo. BB 04-2015. Pours near-clear bronze colour with brief white head. Both nose and taste are initially intense candy caramel, but as it warms for some minutes, the freshness disappears, instead giving off notes of spices and cinnamon, grainy malts, earthy-grassy hops and doughy-plasticky yeast. Body medium, palate syrupy but not overly thick, carbonation more present when swallowing. Finishes unpleasantly dry, metallic and malty with faint earthy bitterness. Alcohol detectable but not dominant. Weird brew. Not terrible though.

Poured from bottle. Foam nonexistent. Quite pretty nutty/ambery color. Taste is watery but has some caramel and yeast in it. A decent attempt but nothing special.
