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. BeerBaboon (2083) - FINLAND - NOV 20, 2010
Brown coloured beer. Aroma of juniper, rye bread, yeast and pepper. Sweet, juniper, hoppy, soft alcohol flavour. Soft mouthfeel alltogether. A good buy. TET (2991) - Kaarina, FINLAND - NOV 27, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2013 A dark brown beer with an almost medium and beige head. The nose is pleasant, strongly juniper with juniper berries, malts, liquirice, sweetness, pine needles and hint of smoke. The taste is also good, malts, roastiness, some ryebread and pine forest, wooden bitterness. The end is quite dry, thus lots of hops are used. Surprisingly, quite light to drink, medium bodied and smooth to drink. Succesfull and tastefull beer. Interesting and strong juniper touch, still great balance. liinis (1770) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 21, 2010
very dark. Full of flavor and a thick mouthfeel. damn good with the juniper. Excellent brew Dermi (1182) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 10, 2011
50 cl, bottled. Pours cloudy red with a tiny white head. Aroma: Root cellar. Potato sack. Vegetables and herbs, hints of juniper. Nice. Tobacco. Nuts. Coffee and dark chocolate. Taste: Roasted malt. Nutty. Some sweetness, sensible coffee like bitterness. Palate: Medium bodied, a bit thin, oily, too. The aftertaste is almost exactly like in nut butter. Very interesting one.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2013 500 ml. Deep mahogany with a ring of bubbles. Nose of maple syrup, dates, dark cherries; slight toasted grain, herbal and alcohol notes, The taste is deliciously the same, with some additional tones of chocolate, evergreen resin, and oak. Medium-heavy body is just thin enough, has low carbonation, and is full of malt but well-dried by the juniper. Very unique, drinkable and tasty brew. Beerheart65 (1503) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 10, 2012
Aroma is full and nuanced. Roasted licorice, citrus, pine, dark chocolate, roasted toffee. Dark red/brown to black. Beige head leaves lacing. Taste has same elements as aroma but not as much roasted, coffee also, pine flavor in finish, full and round, dry finish. A really good finnish beer that I can warmly recommend. bluejacket74 (1991) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - DEC 19, 2012
500 ml bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown with about a half inch tan head that sticks around a little while. There’s also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is rich and malty, the brew smells like caramel malt, dark bread, herbs, and some dark fruit. The herbal and caramel flavors are strong in this brew. It also tastes like nuts, dark bread, and some dark fruit. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it’s syrupy and slick with low/moderate carbonation. I think this is a good brew, I liked it! $8.99 a bottle, I think it’s worth trying at that price. rarbring (2294) - Linköping, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2013
Overall: Sweet caramel, christmas pudding, raisins, madeira. Nice.nilsas (4052) - Bryne, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2013

Et nydelig øl med en herlig krydret dyft av pepper og lakris. Lun og god smak med en ettersmak av lakris og malt. Et øl som ikke må være for kaldt. Godt øl som anbefales. Mørk nøttebrun farge nesten uten skum.
