stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - MAY 7, 2009
Bottle, 50cl. Pours a clear amber/orange colored beer with an orange head. The aroma is caramel with a little fruit. The flavor is caramel, bitterness and alcohol. The palate leaves bitterness. The beer is average.

rsmeds (228) - Turku, FINLAND - MAY 6, 2009
Bottle. My first shot at this brewery, I think -- exciting! Hazy copper, with a light beige head with rather short retension. Sweetish, fruity, slightly alcoholic aroma, with a whisper of hops, molasses, and something vaguely nutty. Alcohol rather prominent in flavor, albeit in a fairly sweet, fruity kind of way. Caramel malts, some bitter hops, and perhaps a hint of dark cherries. Alcohol and hops linger in bitter aftertaste. Somehow, though, it leaves me wishing for more. The fruitiness never quite reaches particularly enjoyable levels, and is, in the end, overshadowed by the alcohol. Medium body, moderate carbonation, clean palate. Bit of a disappointment, frankly.

A bottle from Alko. Pale beige head. Mild nose. Slightly hazy amber coloured. Slightly sweet soft taste. Mild hoppiness. Some syropy, raisins and fruits in the taste.

Lalli (243) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 28, 2009
0,5 l bottle. Slightly murky copper broen color. Nose has alcohol and spices in it. Flavor is quite fruity and somewhat sour, with a notable alcoholic warmness at the end. Not that spectacular though.

mikkopen (1040) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAR 9, 2009
500 ml bottle. Slightly hazy reddish orange colour, thin off-white head that leaves some lacing. Slightly sour malty aroma. The flavour is sweet, malty and alcoholic. The finish is warm, sticky and slightly bitter. Not bad, but not particularly good either.

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 23, 2009
(Bottled) Hazy red-amber with a smallish, firm, mostly fading head. Aroma of roasted, sourish malt, and metal. Flavor of sweetish, caramely malt, some fusely alcohol, flowery yeastiness, and quite a bit of dark fruit. Medium, slightly thin body with soft carbonation. An original, distantly doppelbock- and bière de garde-like - but not that enjoyable brew. I wonder why the hell was this selected to Alko, when there are so many great micros in Denmark to choose from.

aphalo (94) - Turku, FINLAND - FEB 23, 2009
