suurjuust (3254) - ESTONIA - FEB 5, 2012
Dark brown, off-white head. Nose is sweet malt, some hops and juniper notes. It all blends together very well and is a complex and pleasant harmony. Taste has a more pronounced bitterness, but that is balanced out by the slightly sticky sweetness. Juniper blends surprisingly well together with the hops. Medium bodied, gentle carbonation. Good stuff.

Metalchopz (3251) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2015
Pours a hazy copper colour with amber highlights. The head is frothy, bubbly, warm-beige, lasts long and gives out creamy-bubbly lacing. Big aromas of dates, caramel, raisins, nuts, hits of smoke and wood. The burnt malt shows up in the taste all the way. Spices and some nice bitterness, creating a good dryness in the finish. Seems like Juniper lingering with coffee notes. Quite a pleasant brew to try. Like a mild smokey stout with light spices.

nihtila (3236) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2015
6.12.2013. Tiheä vaaleanruskea vaahto, hieman samea, tummanruskea olut. Tuoksussa lievää paahdetta, karamellia, ruista, tuntuu myös alkoholin lämpöä. Pehmeä, hieman karamellisen makea, ruismaltainen, yrttinen, melko täyteläinen, lopussa havuista (katajaista, kuten etiketti sanoo?) katkeroa. Alkoholikin hieman lämmittää, mutta ei maistu. Melko vivahteikas.

SlackerMads (3207) - 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.

Defreni (3087) - Husum, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2014
Flaske: Mudre brun let diset farve med et flot skumhoved. Duften er kraftig maltet med en smule sukker. Smagen er meget maltet men stadig godt frisk grundet en fin humling. Fin øl men ikke til at falde i svime over.

hirigalzkar (3036) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours red-brown with a fast dissapearing off white head. Notes of juniper berries, cream. Quite heavy stuff! Spicy at first, then the maltiness takes over; caramel, burned syrup, dark bread. The hops has the character of red orange. Juniper is shown in the aftertaste. Soft carbonation. Smooth, creamy texture. Interesting but a bit too much in the long run.
