Pours a deep and hazy amber with a thin layer of tan head. Aromas is strong with some sweet and sticky floral notes as well as some piney resin. This beer has a very strong flavor, it almost tastes like bitter molasses with a tinge of alcohol which lends to a fantastic aroma but to somewhat of an overbearing flavor. The flavor profile tends to change a bit from sip to sip, but most of what I get is a sweet and somewhat rounded tart flavor. Pretty good.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2017 Can from backlog notes. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel malts, mild resiny hops, spicy rye, earthy, good but I would like to see less sweetness and more bitterness.

Pours hazy copper with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, alcohol and fruitiness. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and medium to heavy bitter with a long warm, caramel, fruitiness and bitter finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Malts and alcohol. Maybe my can is just old. A bit of bitterness in the finish but otherwise seems like sweet malts with alcohol pushing through.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2017 Can, 21/05/17, US rating #300. Pours an auburn brown with a small, off-white head. Aroma is caramel, slight conifer, red fruit. Taste is caramel, some conifer, red fruit. Turns a bit deeper caramel and dried fruit-maltiness. Full. Alright, but rather one-sided and simple.

Jyrsa (973) - - APR 24, 2017
Can from Alko. Hazy medium brown with tan head. Red fruit, juniper, spruce, herbs, sweet malt. Quite sweet yet a bit bitter with red malt, herbs, some alcohol. Full body, sticky palate and light carbonation. Oddly unbalanced in my opinion.

2.8
JPDIPSO (6293) - Wauwatosa, USA - MAR 31, 2017
Golden color with a smaller off-white head. Sweet and caramel covered grains. Scent of strong alcohol. Nutty and bitter. 5/12
