Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 13, 2009
Dark red-brown, coca cola colored with medium sized light brown head. Perfumy licoricy aroma with syrupy note, some bitterness also here. Medium bodied. Flavor is similar with more lemon, licorice and syrupy also here. Lemon in somehow skunky aftertaste. Not a good beer.

Bottle. Roasted chocolate malts, caramel, dark fruits & berries, spices. Smooth & sweet with a sour edge. Very drinkable. Liked this! (2008)

TET (3033) - Kaarina, FINLAND - NOV 1, 2008
Dark brown beer with small beige head. Aroma is complex and there are some sweetness, roasted malts, redberries and hint of sourness. Flavour is quite simple after nice aroma: malty, slightly roasted and quite dry. Quite easy and light to drink but still nice. Aroma was promised something special but flavour was quite simple and not-characteristic. Worth to try but propably I don’t buy this anymore.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2007
50 cl bottle. Dark clear colour with a nice head. Malty aroma with notes of burned caramel. Smooth flavour of malt, caramel and some fruitness. Not much for an old ale.

3.5
Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2006
Bottle (from Tescos). Ruby coloured. Fruity nose with light roasty malt and hints of earthy hops. Nice combination of light freshness in the mouth and heavier malt flavours. Quite dry but not overly so with pleasantly laid back hops in the finish competing with roasty chocolate for attention. Very interesting but becomes slightly flat in the mouth after a while but the lack of drinkability isnt too much of a problem as this is more of a sipper.

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 27, 2006
Pretty non existant aroma. Slight stodgy, earthy smell. Dark almost black in colour, has a deep red menacing glow. Off white head. Slight burnt charcoal taste. Watery texture.

3.3
Tranquillity (2335) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2008
Bottled. Warm spiciness and some herbs in the sour chocolate aroma. Taste sour, a good balance and some licorice. Very enjoyable indeed, but the finish could be longer.

Bottle. This is a nice straight forward brew with simple straightforward flavours you expect.

JonMoore (2067) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2006
Bottle. Dark ruby coloured with a slim tan head. Vinous, roast malt, fruity and chocolate aroma. Roasted malts and chocolate with some hops in the background. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Nice winter beer.
