Interesting and different beer Cybercat (6143) - Georgia, USA - APR 8, 2013
Comes out of the bottle a clear sepia with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled tan head. Syrupy aroma has a sweet, spicy overtone with touches of fruit and - yes, juniper. Flavor has woody, clove, nutty and earthy notes, rather enjoyable. Texture has average fizz and body, not too shabby. Even if this is a winter beer, enjoyable whatever the season. brnandersen (4109) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 6, 2013
50 cl. bottle. Amber-red colour with no head, just a thin ring around the edges of the glass. Spicy aroma with the juniper very pungent. Caramel malts, bread, nuts, dark, dried fruits and alcohol. Taste is sweet. Medium body, flat carbonation. Spicy finish with rich malts and juniper. If you´re a kind of juniper-guy this is certainly the beer for you. Enjoyable, even if I wonder, the beer should be so little carbonated. Arve_Christian (5218) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 5, 2013
On bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Dark brown color, ok foam. Quite intense immediate malty aromas, dried fruits, raisins
Medium/ full body & high complexity .
On the sweet side. Enjoyable MPA (999) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - APR 5, 2013
Draught. Dark with beige head. Malty aroma with a certain juniper scent, which also comes across in flavour. Flavour is sweet and has dark fruits to it, and some bitterness to keep the balance. Very decent.
Holmen1 (6471) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 19, 2013
Et interessant kjøp fra polet: lite futt når jeg åpnet flasken og foruroligende lite skum. Aroma av halvvisne blomster - dette lover ikke godt. Men smaken er heldigvis av en annen støpning, her er der einer (som vi ofte bruker i Holmens brygg), litt maltsødme og en skygge av humle (eller er det finsk badstusvette?). De 7,3 vitaminenhetene er gjemt langt inne i skogen. Et godt og annerledes øl, noe helt annet enn jeg ventet meg. Drikker gjerne denne igjen, og det skulle vært interessant å erfare fatversjonen i sisuomgivelser. Tide (4348) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 19, 2013
Bottle from Alko. Brown color, beige head. Sweet/bitter taste with nuts, bread, chocolate and a bit of fruits. Nicely balanced body. Malty finish with nuts and bread. Nice brown ale. VastActiv (7592) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 17, 2013

Bottle at home. Pours a clear brown with a small off-white head. Sweet and malty with lots of caramel aromas. The juniper is especially noticeable towards the end, even though it is quite mellow. Hints of nuts. Medium bodied. Medium to soft carbonation. Sweet and bitter finish with more juniper.
