Pours a clear dark brown body with a little tan head. Nose has herbal notes along with some chokolate and juniper. Taste is sweet with a mildly bitter finish. Carbonation is very soft and the mouthfeel is pretty thin. This is pretty bad, overly sweet and artificial.

50 cl bottle. Thanks rosenbergh!
Pours dark copper color with a a small off-white head. Lots of dark berries on the nose, earthy, malty and sugary. Sweet sugary and malty flavor, some faint berry notes as well as some anise. Disturbingly sweet and messy.

Ok sweetness on the nose and overall nice darker beer, perhaps for christmas beer and happy holidays as almost rootbeer-ish, licorice, raisins and so-on. It is fine.

Zarkam (532) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 16, 2014
500ml bottle from Tallinn. Dark reddish brown colour, small off-white frothy mostly vanishing head, hardly any lacing. Moderately malty toasty aroma of dark bread and molasses with a hint of chocolate, light herbal hops and some spicyness thrown in. Taste is initially moderately to heavily sweet and slightly acidic, turning into a short sweet finish with a marginal hint of bitterness. Full body, creamy to syrupy texture, soft carbonation. Some interesting aromas but just way too sweet for my liking and felt too much like drinking syrup.

lusikka (7104) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 12, 2014
500 ml bottle. Thanks rosenbergh. Pours a dark brown colour with a small head. Aroma of toasted malts, salt, sweat and mild bread. Flavour of cough medicine, some herbs, unclean yeastiness, repulsive sweetness, bread and salty licorice. Light bodied and thin mouthfeel. Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaad.

500 ml bottle. BB 09/12/2014. (Maksimarket) Laagri, Estonia.
Dark reddish brown colour with a tiny white head. Spices and sweetness in the aroma. The flavour is spices, cough drops, sweetness, Coke and some malt mixed together. Very bad beer. Watery.
