3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Harry’s, Jyväskylä. Almost black dark brown color. Aromas of peat smoke, earthy barnyard, chocolate and licorice. Taste is sweet and roasty with peat smoke and smoked ham on top. Chocolatey roastiness comes second with herbal juniper in a finish. Full bodied. The smoke character is quite barnyardy bringing horse stalls to mind. Juniper is used in nice restrained way.
