4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Strong aroma with banana, sweet fruits and caramel. Dark brown/orange with hazy liquid. Minimal, natural white head. Strong, very balanced taste with dominating banana, caramel, toffee and fruits. Alcohol quite present but stylishly in background. Wide taste spectrum and long aftertaste with banana, sweet fruits and caramel. Thick/medium palate with medium/light carbonation. Overall a "supercharged Aventinus". A hint of extra malts and thickness could be rewarded by 5.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown beer with a dark beige foam. Banana, yeast, ash, bread, caramel aromas. Reminds you of sahti aromawise. Crispy mouthfeel. Banana, a lot of sweet liquorice and a little bit saltiness as well. Has a twist of anis too. A lot of flavor and spicyness. The strong taste makes this a slow beer for peaceful moments.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear with an off-white head from a bottle. Very murky but surprisingly light brown. Nose has banana, sweet malt, alcohol and chocolate. Mouth is Liquorice, fruits and a nice bouquet of malty flavours. Taste is sweet with maybe a hint of saltiness. Body is full with a sticky texture and finish is medium. A nice way to celebrate the first snow of the winter.
