A ale-ish beer that’s sweeter and denser or richer compared to ales that I’ve previously tasted. The carbonation is very creamy, guinness-like, but there’s less foam. The color is mead- and coffee-like. The taste is very elegant with the typical ale dryness, bitterness and yeastiness, but the taste has more "body" than other ales I’ve had. It tastes like a mix between some generic ale and Guinness-like stouts. I cannot pinpoint clear flavours other than that it tastes like "dark beer" and is again Guinness-like. It’s an excellent beer though and I find nothing to complain. Would buy again, if I fancy this style of beer. Tide (4566) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2017
Draught at Mikkeller Bar. Dark copper color, white head. Bitter taste with malts, nuts, toffee, a bit of ripe fruits and bread. Bitter finish with malts, citrus, nuts, toffee and a bit of ripe fruits. Peculiar, but good brew. vinivini (3147) - Gomel, BELARUS - FEB 4, 2017
Bottle. Chestnut brown with big ivory frothy head that stays. Promising aroma of dark chocolate, caramel, fruity and floral hops. Light to medium body. Oily texture. The taste starts optimistic showing nice balance of chocolate malts and floral hops. At the very moment you are ready to scream out a compliment the mouth feel breaks down. The ending is hollow. I’ve missed my orgasm. Pity. kustie (1383) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 1, 2017

Sourish note in the aroma, some nettles. Bland malty taste. Watery palate. Some dry harsh bitterness in the finish. Harsh and chemical. Utterly pointless beer.
