wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 19, 2011
Hazy, light brown hue; falling ivory cream. Modestly smoky; malty milk chocolate and caramel backbone lightly accented with pears. Malty and dryish gives way to a mildly smoky middle and a moderately bitter, spicy finish prickled with lively carbonation. Perhaps a touch soapy at the end. Medium bodied with a slick texture. 50 cl bottle. Kavu (5129) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 12, 2011

50 cl bottle, BBE 15.06.2012Dermi (1196) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 10, 2011
Quickly disappearing head with big bufbbles and ugly, brown and murky colour. Aroma has smoke, ginger and some metal. Flavour has smoke, rye, spices, baking yeast and some Laitila house flavour. Metal in the finish. I didn’t like this on tap and I don’t like the bottle either. Simply too malty and sweet.
50 cl, bottled. Pours hazy orange with a light tan head. Aroma: Malt, rye. Pleasant, mild unaggressive smoke and fried liver. Taste: Medium sweet, quite bitter and slightly acidic. Palate: Medium bodied, soft. Pleasant. TET (3208) - Kaarina, FINLAND - NOV 4, 2011
Dark brown beer with a almost medium and blond head. Aroma is quite mild, roastiness, some smoke and ryebread. Taste is slightly rough, roasted, slightly smoky and quite long and roasted aftertaste. Taste is also quite mild as aroma. Quite light to drink with biting carbonation. This beer don’t convince me, too mild and shy, more smoke would be also great.

Tap. Dark Amber with a thin light foam. Sweet earthy taste. The rye smoky combination feels artificial. Too sweet to my taste. liinis (1791) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2011 lots of rye and quite a lot of moist smoke. Quite thick. Excellent mouth feel with a nice hoppy dryness in the end. there is some hazelnut flavour and almond. Nice bitterness in the end too. Extraordinary beer ! tkrjukoff (4334) - SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2011
Tap @ SOPP Helsinki. Pours deep amber with a nice beige head leaving lace. Malty, bready, smoked, sweet, floral and hoppy aroma. Flavor like aroma. Finishes sweet fruity with slight smoked and bitter aftertaste. Brandman (2962) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2011
Brown body, khaki head. Arom aof smoked sweet malt, some fruits in background. Flavour has surprising bitterness, tar, and some pointy fruity flavour. Nice and ligh smoked beer. Miksu (5052) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUN 12, 2011
Drauht at Gastropub Jalo, Jyväskylä. Dark reddish brown color. The aromas of toffee and tarry smoke. In the flavor tarry smoke is evindent with toffeish and nutty malt backbone, enough bitterness for a balance. Nice malty and sessionable beer.
