The first Finnish craft beer I’ve tasted. Quite nice, almost a barley wine I would say. Dark iced tea appearance, very little head. Sweet malty, dried fruit aroma. Taste is sweet and malts with a bit of citrus hop bite. Kind of thin palate, but coating. visionthing (5292) - 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!

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. jazz88 (2675) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 9, 2013
A transparent brown color with no head. A somewhat sweet, brown sugar, and maple syrup aroma with noticeable and pleasant juniper twigs. It has a nice earthy aroma and flavor with a light malty palate. Tide (3828) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 19, 2013
Bottle from Alko. Brown color, beige head. Sweet/bitter taste with nuts, bread, chocolate and a bit of fruits. Nicely balanced body. Malty finish with nuts and bread. Nice brown ale.

50 cl. bottle. Amber-red colour with no head, just a thin ring around the edges of the glass. Spicy aroma with the juniper very pungent. Caramel malts, bread, nuts, dark, dried fruits and alcohol. Taste is sweet. Medium body, flat carbonation. Spicy finish with rich malts and juniper. If you´re a kind of juniper-guy this is certainly the beer for you. Enjoyable, even if I wonder, the beer should be so little carbonated. Cybercat (5740) - Georgia, USA - APR 8, 2013
Comes out of the bottle a clear sepia with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled tan head. Syrupy aroma has a sweet, spicy overtone with touches of fruit and - yes, juniper. Flavor has woody, clove, nutty and earthy notes, rather enjoyable. Texture has average fizz and body, not too shabby. Even if this is a winter beer, enjoyable whatever the season.

Bottle at home. Has a hazy reddish brown colour with a beige medium head. Aroma of berries, leather, dried fruit, chocolate, rye bread and caramel. Sweet flavour with more caramel and berries. Nice. Slick mouth feel, and has a light bitterness. A balanced and great beer. Easy drinking as well.
