Frothmeister (792) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2016
500ml bottle. In the cellar for about a year. Pours a clear dark copper with a tan head. On the nose burnt sugar, light earthiness, light molasses, herbal lozenges, and a light woody note. Taste wise, lightly sweet with brown sugar notes, light pine, and light molasses that heads into more of the same with a tinge of slightly bitter dark coffee, and some woody notes / pot (yup pot) in the bitter finish. It’s solid. I would buy it again.

ogniskowicz (848) - POLAND - JAN 25, 2016
Aromat iglaków miesza się z ciastem karmelowym i leśnymi owocami. W smaku bardzo pełne, chlebowo-karmelowe, ale nieprzesadnie słodkie z mocną ziołowo-iglakową goryczką i mnóstwem owocowych posmaków (jeżyny, jagody). Dziwne, ale bardzo przyjemne piwo.

ZodiacM (1140) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2015
Uit de fles (0,5l) geschonken. Mijn 1e Finse bier. Schenkt een mooi donkerbruin bier. Aromas van mout, caramel, hout. Smaak is lekker kruidig: mout, caramel, hout en een kruidige smaak die ik niet thuis kan brengen (jeneverbestak?). Een zeer prettig drinkbaar kruidig bier, zeker geschikt voor in de wintermaanden.

3.5
Giochaurand (532) - FINLAND - DEC 8, 2015

nazzty (1376) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2015
No, not very good. Uncomfortably sour flavors that do not mix with the caramel from the malt.
