3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Crowbar, december 14th 2012. Dark brown body, thin offwhite head. Aroma of ginger, honey, flowery hops. Taste of peppers, caramel, milk chocolate and juniper. Interesting taste, nicely blended. A bit light bitterness, overshadowed by sweetness. Aftertaste of malt, juniper and a bit smoke. Overall an enjoyable beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
I ended up opting for a snifter due to said ingredients that were in this, let’s see if they actually show up.
The appearance was a dark chestnut brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Somewhat foamy lacing strung it’s way around the glass.
The smell had a coca cola aroma over top of some oaky sprucy vanilla.
The taste was mainly sweet through the spruce coca cola flavoring and it becomes fairly sticky on my taste buds.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with more of a sipping sort of quality about it. It runs sticky sweet over my tongue.
Overall, not a bad beer just seemed different to me. Would I have it again - for the price probably not - $15 for this bottle was a bit too much.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Piwo z minimalna piana grubo pecherzykowa nie oblepiajaca szkla. Kolor brazowo miedziany, lekko metny. Zapach toffi, krowki i inne slodkosci. W smaku dochodzą cukierki werters orginal, trochę herbaty czarnej, ziolowej, tymianek, jagody także sa. Ciekawe posmaki drzewne, kora sosnowa w zapachu dość intensywna, trochę drewniane w smaku jakby było starzone w beczkach debowych. Sporo slodkosci i wyczuwalny niestetry alkohol, ale gorycz niewielka także była zwłaszcza w drugiej fazie po przelknieciu. Sahti trochę inaczej, ale fajne.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Huge fluffy tan/fawn head, stripes and carpets inside mug, hazy copper body.
Scents of roasted fruity malts, spicy hops, smoked dried prunes, notes of juniper bushes.
Full taste of roasted caramel malts, grilled prunes, some spices, maybe a tiny juniper.
Modest carbonation suits the brew well. Good body. Sweet-bitter roasted feel.
Finishes with some warmth, roasted malts, herbs, hops, black prunes, fruity-bitter, nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle - 500 ml) Ruby red color with a fizzy off-white head. Aroma is loaded with hints of pine, juniper, malts, and caramel. Flavor is much the same. A good amount of pine and sweet malts at the beginning with a malty and light chocolate middle coming quick behind it. Fruity and piney at the finish with a light sweetness that lingers.

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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
50 cl bottle graciously given to me by beastiefan2k. Pour is a cloudy brown ruby with nice settling building up a dense 3 inch tan head. Head falls slowly with minimal lacing. Aroma is sweet fig, cocoa malt and lively juniper earthiness. Interesting nose, soft and fresh. Taste is more skewed to juniper and wood, with the grassy somewhat sweet fig behind that. There is a real nice straw element in the finish which finishes crisp and dry. As it warms, I get some of the cocoa from the nose in the taste. More like dry baking cocoa. Palate is medium bodied, with a fair amount of carbonation. There is a warming alcohol sensation to the finish which comes across a bit odd with the dryness. Overall an interesting complex beer, thanks for giving me this Eugene.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark brown, small and fully diminishing head. Moderate and very spicy and herbal aroma with juniper, some sweetness. Body is medium, malty and dryish, herbal spiciness with juniper. Finish is average, malty, juniper with soapy hoppyness. Juniper just does not work with this hoppyness – it gets too overwhelming.
