COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Less would be enough. With its rich copper colour Tosi Vahva (Special Strength) Karhu is generously malted and flavoured with the best hops. It is a balanced, special strength and full-bodied beer.

There is a 8.8 % version of this, which is sold in the Tax Free shops on the cruiseships from/to Finland. Ratings should, however, be put under this entry.

Kirkas, tumman kuparisen vrinen olut kohtalaisella valkoisella vaahdolla, joka jtt jopa pitsi kivasti. Tuoksu maltainen, hieman hedelminen, metallinen ja alkoholinen. Maku maltainen, viljainen ja runsaan alkoholinen ei juuri muuta. Pitk metallinen ja hieman mausteinen jlkimaku. Suutuntuma vhintn keskitytelinen ja aika runsaan hiilihappoinen. Nautittu etiketin ohjeen mukaisesti jkaappikylmn. Kyllp ji metallinen jlkimaku pitkksi aikaa kielen plle. Onhan tm aikamoinen viinalager. Tysin turha tekele.

The color is clear amber with foamy white head. Aroma is malty caramel. Taste is medium sweet with caramel notes and warming alcohol in finish. Drinkable.

Very nice full bodied beer with a strong and heavy malt aroma. Colour is dark and pours a nice fluffy foam :)

MarkoNm (2524) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 19, 2015
Pours a clear amber color, topped with a small white frothy head. Grainy malt aroma, sugar and some caramel. Taste is pure malty sweet, some hints of bitterness in the finish and a bit boozy. A bit metallic aftertaste. If you want to get wasted it will do, otherwise nothing special. Not unpleasant.

martjoobolut (3546) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 28, 2015
0,33L can (from SuperAlko, Tallinn). Pours clear red copper with off-white head. The head stays. Aroma is metallic, malt, maize, and alcohol. Flavor is sweet, maize, alcohol, malt. Overall: its a malt liquor tick!

Senka (1076) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 7, 2014
33cl can. Rich copper color, thin head. Malty, bitter and loaded with alcohol. Thin, watery, fizzy pop like beverage. Why 1.9 and not 1 - it is well balanced, and drinkable when cold. It is so nasty, that is good.

BitchPls (782) - FINLAND - APR 27, 2014
Clear, copper red beer with a beautiful beige head. Nice sweet and fruity aroma. Lots of caramel, some toffee, malt, bread and some alcohol but its pretty nicely hidden. Wow what a surprise. I thought this would be awful but its actually pretty nice and many times better than the regular strength Karhu. Nice!

visionthing (4957) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 8, 2014
33cl bottle at Viking Xprs. Pours clear amber to ruby with a minimal white head. Malty aroma with caramel, some fruity notes and hints of hops. Fairly sweet and malty. A bit over the top, but still drinkable.
