3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled (BBE 2010). Beer just forgotten in the cellar. Rubyish amber colour with a mediumsized beige foamy head. Aroma is chocolate, some spices and mild floral and toffeeish notes. Flavour is strong maltyness, some chocolate, mild spices, some ripe fruits as well as some mild earhtyness.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.5 from K-Market Kamppi, Helsinki. Reddish brown color. Strong sweet milk chocolate aroma. Dryer flavor with milk chocolate, nuts and fruity tartness. Chocolate aroma and flavor feels somewhat artificial and superimposed. There is either too much chocolate or not enough malt backbone.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
0,5 l bottle. Color is a nice chestnut brown, good beige head. Nose is extremely sweet; milk chocolate is the dominating force. Flavor is also very sweet with milk chocolate, malts and a certain touch of artificial sweetener in it. This is very similar to VASP´s easter brew earlier this year (could it even be the same recipe?). They could have been a lot braver when it comes to using spices...

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle (K CM, Kamppi)
Very chocolatey aroma, also some plastic scented erasers. Soft
carbonation. Milky palate, and I don’t just mean a smooth creamy feel,
but also a slightly milky taste too. Slightly stodgy chocolate-cake
roastyness, quite harsh burnt corners in places. Leaves me a bit short.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml bottle. Finland.
Dark brown colour with small to average creamy tan head.
Mostly chocolate and cocoa in aroma. Grainy malty flavour with lots of artificial chocolate and some bitter hoppiness. Quite thin though.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled (Eat&Joy, BB 05/2010)
Dark ruby color, steady creamy beige head. Artifical chocolate and cocoa in the strong nose. Flavor has some chocolate but less than in Pääsiäisolut. More malty and hoppy flavors instead. Tasting a bit like standard Vienna mixed with artifical chocolate aroma and flavor.
