3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle, 0.5 l - BB 210814, at Pikkulintu, 20131208) The beer poured very dark brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and almost white. Aroma had malts, molasses and roasted malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, molasses, roasted malts, grassy hops and low bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and bitter. A nice malty brew but there was some unpleasant unbalancedness.

Bottle. Pours clear dark copper brown with a ruby shade and airy light beige head. Clear aroma of malt, fruit and caramel, with a note of roast. Sweet, malty and caramellish aroma, with notes of fruit and very well pronounced touches of alcohol. Slightly bitter finish. OK but rather boozy for the style.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle, trade with Skinnyviking. Deep dark brown body, good amount of lacing from a firm, beige head, some of it remaining. Mild aroma of earth and caramel joined by a spicy touch. Substantial impact of spices and herbs in the flavour alongside roasted malts offering hints of caramel and nuts. Long lived bittersweet and semi-dry ending. Quite easy to drink – and to like. Good (hotel room, Copenhagen, 21.03.2013).
