Really enjoyed this strong ale from Finch- had a pour of this at Leopold, a gastropub in Chicago’s West Town. Lovely aroma with a strong rye smell, a lovely balance of hops on the finish. A little sour, a bit bitter, but all perfectly balanced and tasty.

Turns a bit deeper caramel and dried fruit-maltiness. Full. Alright, but rather one-sided and simple. Jyrsa (834) - - 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.

, from Alko web store. Medium aroma with red berries and sweet malts. Deeper orange color with minimal organic white head and hazy liquid. Medium, averagely balanced, slightly bittersweet taste with some red berries, hops and malts. Dry-hopping clearly visible. Medium taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with malts and berries. Medium body with medium/light carbonation. Overall, despite slightly unbalanced touch, this one has a clear goal and with nice malty backbone. Still, bit light for the percentage.
Clear amber colour, frothy tan head. Bready aroma, syrup, molasses, a bit of rye. Slightly bitter taste, nice ale feel to it. Creamy mouthfeel, above medium body, low carbonation. Very nice strong ale.
