3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very dark brown beer with a off-white head. Almost port like beer. With dark fruits, yeast, sugar and a sourness. Definite firm alcohol percentage. Very interesting beer but not really my cup of tea.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Has vintage 2014 heads up with 2013, this is rating of 2013.
Pours dark brown with very nice one finger lasting brown head. Aroma is loads of belgian yeast, port, dried fruits, raisins, prunes, brown sugar. Some nice chocolate and honey in there as well, bit spices to. Almost cakey. Toasty malts. This one is way more rounded after only a year. Taste is all the same. Sweet, belgian yeast, spices, dried fruits, burnt sugar, toasty malts and slight dry. Nice port/sherry booze and full body. Really a smooth classic! But one year makes is a lot more richer!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ Fermentoren Aarhus.
Pours dark Ruby.
Lots of malty goodness in the nose, chocolate and oak wood.
Swapping between 2014 and 2013, the 14 still has a bit sharper, yeasty hint to it, whereas the 13 is smoother and richer. Like a teenager growing into a woman - the perfume is nice, but age gives it finesse.
Taste is like being hand-fed with gold dusted cocoa beans by a well trimmed monkey ; sweet and smooth chocolate, yet somehow a bit of wildness to it.
Really a nice beer!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle @ Tuulensuu
Dark cola colored beer with beige head. Aroma has brown sugar, plums, banana, cherry, liqueur and some coffee. Flavor has brown sugar, mämmi and malts. Palate is full with quite strong carbonation, slightly foamy. Finish has quite mild bitterness. Aftertaste has mämmi, brown sugar, dark fruits, vanilla and coffee. No signs of alcohol. Decent, but not totally my type of beer. The mämmi kind of sweetness reminds me even of Czech dark lagers.

Poured dark with a great beige head. Whiskey aroma and alcohol. Flavor is massively sweet with light caramel and dark fruit notes. I’ll repeat for sure!
