laiti (5966) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 13, 2011
33 cl bottle (bottled on 2007/2008?), BBE Q4/2013
Aroma has sweet toffee, just like in english barley wines. Also some candi sugar and raisins. Loads of CO2 in palate. Flavour is very sweet with sugar and raisins, but also some sourness does appear in the background. Could not locate the promised spices. Aftertaste is really sweet with loads of candi sugar. Adding the yeast makes this more stale and worse.
