3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught. Dark brown. Nose has a touch of roasted malts, chocolate malts or something similar. Caramel, chocolate, some metallic tones and green hops. Body is thinnish/med, soft, med bitter, some wood, roasted malts. Hops in finish. Feels very finnish, a bit like lapin kulta’s xmas beer. Soft, fresh (at the brewpub) makes it ok though. A dark, slightly caramelly drink.
