TorbenJensen (1486) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2015
This ale is brewed with juniper and have a beautifully renewable foam. It has the characteristics of an amber ale with dark caramel malt in the main theme embossed with a slightly spicy tang of juniper. Let the sweetness of malt and a rapidly growing spicy bitterness where juniper is very evident. At the end comes a somewhat distinctive bitter end as probably not be attributed solely to the hops, but surely also juniper vessel profits. Lovely and delicate ale which can be recommended.

Trolleo (1451) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 7, 2015
Cloudy dark brown, small off-white head. Nutty aroma, some brown sugar. Spicy taste, some very strange notes I can’t define. Don’t like it very much. Medium body, creamy, soft carbonation. OK.

Tasting at beer 14. Aroma has lots of malt and juniper. Rasting is light at first. Then you get the darker malts coming through.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 20, 2010
{thoughts} Slight unfocused and astringent, thinly textured; firmer malts might pull this beer together, eliminating its vacillating nature.

{elements} Brilliant, deep maroon hue; light tan froth quickly recedes into a scattering of suds. Aroma is erratic --toasty with light toffee blending into a dusty and lightly musky plum element with piny and licorice accents. Spicy upfront with a moderate sweetness tucked away, fruity and berry-like acidity; finishes like fruit punch. Light green tea astringency, watery texture, moderate carbonation, medium body. 50 cl bottle, best before 01.09.2012.

mmmbeer (1405) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 7, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2009 1 pt. .9 oz bottle (from Liquid Solutions) served in shaker- poured a non transparent black when held to a light source with shades of dark brown, no carbonation, aroma of malt, 24hr pot coffee aroma (trust me, there is a difference), and bones. Hits the mouth with a very high medium body, the malt is just too overpowering, omg, OMG.... (shakes his head and says, "I GOT THIS"). Malt is on the high end when the soul of the brew comes out to play, hard in the middle, but still puts up a fight, finish lingers badly, and in the bad way, slapnuts. No heady words here, just that it could have been better. I picture me in a long forgotten rest way cabin, and I dreampt (sp? )I found this brew. Yeah, dream. Dream what could have been too little, too late for late for me...

ryecatcher (1404) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark, mahogany brown, medium tannish head with decent retention and excellent lacing. Nose is big malts, dried fruit (raisins and currants in particular), some slight woodiness, toffee. Mouth is medium bodied, mild sweetness, malt forward, lotta toasted pumpernickel and molasses, figs, dates, prunes, caramel, faint bitterness at the finish. Not getting any Juniper, but this bottle was on sale at 50% off from Binny’s, so it may be past it’s prime freshness. Still a tasty brew to welcome the newest Finn, and Chicago Blackhawk, Teuvo Teravainen, to the NHL. Kippis!
