djoeye (2260) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2015
Fruity tan head, red copper clear body, crocheted kitchen curtains inside my mug. Aroma; chocolate malts, cocoa, milk, grass, dusty grains. Taste; chocolate, malts, red apple, kiwilompolo, grassy potent hops. Normal on palate, somewhat dry. Finishes through apple peels with a dry twist. Accepted ok.

Kauge (658) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 22, 2014
50 cl bottle as a gift from Espoo. Labelled as Prykmestar Talviolut. Both ABV and introduction indicate this is the same thing. Pours a clear dark coppery colour with a retaining and lacing light beige head. Nose is not very inviting dank malts and herbal Saaz hops. Taste is low bitterness with some roasted and caramel malts. Body relatively good for the ABV, carbonation quite crisp. Would probably rate higher if had this together with a savoury meat dish with sauerkraut - it has this neutrality to it that would not overwhelm the food while helping cleanse the palate.

olio (7431) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 27, 2013
50 cl bottle.
Pours clear dark mahogany color with a large head. Aroma is malty, nutty and somewhat resinous, mild fruit and metallic notes also. Flavor is metallic and malty, some grain, distant resin and mild nuts. Strong carbonation, bitter malty palate. Not very pleasant.

laiti (7263) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 22, 2013
50 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 02.04.2010
Aroma is somewhat roasted with malty notes, some caramel and nuts. Flavour has roasted notes, some licorice, nuts and hints of chocolate. Quite nice and rich for this ABV – and pairs fine with meat dishes.

Erasmus_ro (1827) - Alabama, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Bottle. Thanks Tuomas. Pours a reddish dark brown with an almost non-existent, off-white head. Aroma is vegetal with light grass and dark bready malt. Taste is bready malt and grass. Not very pleasant. Light sweet. Forgettable. Palate is light, not much carbonation.

kalervo (849) - FINLAND - NOV 24, 2012
Quite regular Münchener-style beer. A bit too thin and one-sided to be a "real winter beer" for me.

Hansen (7457) - Assentoft, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2012
Brown coloured and hazy. Has an off-white head, fully lasting, looks good. Malty aroma, caramel and odd notes of fertilizer. Sweet flavor, moderate bitter finish. Watery, creamy texture.
