Tap at Churchkey. Beautiful deep reddish pour with a smaller head. Vinous, dark sweet fruit, with a nice little heft to the palate. Good stuff.

SlackerMads (3523) - DENMARK - NOV 25, 2012
Bottle. Brown with off-white head. Aroma is sweet with a light sour cellulose thing to it. Otherwise notes of almonds, marzipan, malt, yeast, leather. Vinous. Taste is a bit watery at first but some alcohol sweetness kicks in. Notes of burnt caramel, plums, toffee, spices. Ends bitter. Interesting stuff that I need to try again.

visionthing (5532) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 22, 2012
50cl bottle at F-hoone, Tallinn. Pours very dark brown with a reddish hue and a minimal off-white head. Malty aroma with caramel, some berries, probably juniper and some roasty notes. Also hints of chocolate and coffee. Sweet and malty with a light juniper flavour and a quite dry and bitter finish. Alcohol is well integrated. Mild and easy to drink, but quite tasty! (2012-11-18)

Beerheart65 (1503) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 10, 2012
Aroma is full and nuanced. Roasted licorice, citrus, pine, dark chocolate, roasted toffee. Dark red/brown to black. Beige head leaves lacing. Taste has same elements as aroma but not as much roasted, coffee also, pine flavor in finish, full and round, dry finish. A really good finnish beer that I can warmly recommend.

Bottle. Creamy off-white fair mostly deminishing head. Amber colour. Moderate malty and heavy hoppy aroma. Moderate biter spicey flavor. Long moderate bitter finish. Creamy palate. Nice brew.
