Drank side by side with nögne two captains. This was good, yet lags behind on all aspects. As a finnish beer this is smething really different and well balanced, but compared to two captains, well... Sweet aroma of caramel, glue and alcohol. Balanced mouthfeel and a somewhat bitter aftertaste. Was expecting a bit more refreshing taste. Good in general, as a finnish beer - excellent.

Utuisen ruskea olut pienehköllä, beigellä vaahdolla, joka jättää kivan ohuen vaahtokerroksen jälkeensä. Tuoksu suorastaan mainio. Makean karamellisen maltainen, mutta samalla myös siirappinen, havuinen ja aniksella höystetty. Hedelmääkin tästä löytyy aavistus. Maun osalta ensin huomaa vahvan karamellisen makean maltaisuuden hyökkäävän päälle. Loppupuolella humalan katkeruus nousee vahvasti esiin greippisellä höysteellä. Jälkimaku on kuitenkin vahvimmin maltaisen makea ja huulissa huomaa tahmaisen makeuden. Itse asiassa jälkimaku on todella pitkä ja makean maltaisuuden lisäksi myös mausteisen greippinen. Täyteläinen suutuntuma, hiilihappoja vähäisesti. Jälleen kerran huippuluokan olut Vakka-Suomelta. Omaan makuun mennään siinä rajoilla, onko greippisyyttä jo liikaa.

500ml Bottle - Copper red with a foamy head. Pine, caramel, grapefruit and some slightly earthy notes in the aroma. Pine, nuts, caramel and grapefruit all feature in the resinous and fruity taste.

Sparf (234) - Östersund, SWEDEN - JUN 7, 2016
Behagligt rund och fyllig arom med både söt malt och en tung, snarare än frisk, barrskogsbeska. Mörkt brun färg. Disig brygd med jästfällning. Tätt, fint strukturerat skum med mycket lång halveringstid. Mycket stor smak med fullödig, krämig karamellsötma som inte matchas tillräckligt av beskan. Hade behövt en annan humlekomposition. Överfyllig kropp men en väl avvägd kolsyra. Eftersmaken bär en djup men inte för kraftig beska.

Bottle in our shabby Helsinki apartment. Hazy reddish deep amber beer, bubbly pale cream colour head. Palate is a little soft, modest carbonation. Caramel toffee malts, creamy sweetness. Ripe fruits, sweet esters, mild citric peel and even milder bitterness. More caramel and dried fruits before a smooth semi dry finish. So ... just had Stadin American Barleywine which is double ipa like and now Prykmestar Double IPA which tastes like a barleywine. Tsk! Brewers eh? Wotcha ya gonna do? Decent.

Murky dark brown colour, small tan head with some bubbles. Strong and smooth malty aroma, some caramel and raisins. Malty bitter taste but not overpoweringly so. Soft, oily mouthfeel, light carbonation. Nice earthy double IPA.

TEJA (2421) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2015
Bottle from Alko Finland. Big and lasting beige head. Clear deap golden amber color. Initial orange aroma that goes away to become cheesy and intence. Big hard bitterness and huge concetrated fruit taste. Big body.

Finn (6291) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 4, 2015
Flaske 500ml fra Alko Muonio. Drukket på Nerstranda 26 Okt 15 som belønning for at ratingene fra i vår/sommer/høst er kladdet! Mørk gyldenbrun. Lavt litt farget skum. Flotte filigranser. Behagelig - litt tung fruktig - aroma. Myk munnfølelse. God fylde. Godt moden frukt med et vinøst preg - på grensen til at alkoholen skinner gjennom.
