3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A dark brown beer with a quite weak and beige head. Aroma is pleasant and smoky, tarliquirice, some ham, nice aroma. Taste is malty, mild dry smoke, quite light and short taste. Light+, nice carbonation, too light body, richer body should give also more intensive taste. Quite nice smoked beer, but too light body and the short taste isn’t very convincing.

Aroma is sweetish and somewhat smoky with vanilla, tar and slight woody notes. Flavour has smoke, some tar and smoky ham. Also a slight grainy feeling. Not the richest smoked beer and a bit too sweet, but not bad anyway.

lots of smoke in the nose and it carries in to the taste also. otherwise lagertype of taste in the backround. lively carbonation. I liked the aroma nad the taste wasnt bad either but for some reason as a whole this beer wasnt that likable. not sure why.

Tastes great. Yet another successful Finnish brew. And among them the first smoked one genuinely worth its own points. Somewhat expensive, though.
