Clear dark copper, decent-sized tight off-white head. Lovely caramelly aroma with a gentle smoke, some almond - this says savubock to me! Caramelly malty body, gentle banana esteriness, almont, soft smoke, and plenty of yum in the taste. Classic bock - more please!

Well, my wish was accidentally granted, but it wasn't as good this time. Sweet smoky bock aroma. Taste ditto. Full palate, smooth - a proper bocky body. Bready malts, sweet smoke. Very decent.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2019 Draught @Pikkulintu Ruttopuisto 28.3.2019. Poured deep golden in color, thick white head. Buttery smoke, malts and sweetness in aroma and flavor. The sweet buttery notes were nto to my liking. Malty, sweet finish. Not that much smoke either actually.rosenbergh (13536) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 2, 2018

Taproom United. Aroma has tar, licorice and smoke. Flavour has tar, smoke, licorice and some malty tones. Easy-going smoked - one of the best finnish ones. If not the best. Well, perhaps tuhtipukki is better if you count that one.
