Zarkam (538) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2013
500ml bottle from the Drink Shop, Tallinn, dark slightly reddish brown colour, almost non-existent cream head. Aroma is nuts, herbs. juniper and rye bread with a note of licorice. Medium to full body, very soft carbonation, long bitter and sour finish. Not bad a combination, I don’t mind fairly soft carbonation but this one was closer to flat in that aspect.

jookos (5879) - FINLAND - SEP 18, 2013
Bottle. Brown mahogany. Nutty malty nose with foresty aromas, twigs, juniper, and roasted malts. Full bodied, dry bitter. Roasted malts, herbal tones, dried roasted coffee and chocolate in finish. Strange, but savory and nice. Feels like a stout mixed with sahti, fermented with ale yeast. Once again a good brew from malmgård.

Dark brown, little head, low carbonation but nice, smooth mouth feel, somewhat rich. Dark malts, caramel and chocolate aftertaste. Definitely a nice one to drink, would probably age well. Nice malt. Slight bitterness, slight roasted malt flavor.
