Back in 2008, I had major dental work done. That included application of some medicine that seeped out of my tooth every now and then. The medicine tasted like venom and made me throw up ever so often.
Chugging down a pint of that medicine while getting punched by a rabid donkey would be a more enjoyable experience. Tasted to me like someone had fermented bad bread in a prison latrine. Will never try it again.

You can really feel the strength of this beer, and it’s 5,9%! Strong and heavy taste and also strong hazy aftertaste, little bit caramel and woody.

Smells sweet. Color is dark reddish amber. Bit sour taste and very bitter aftertaste. Quite carbonated and bit acid. Palate could be more thicker for 8 different malts :) Overall nice ale for midweek evening :D

Spicy, rather sweet, strongly reminds honey infused beers. Full bodied for its type. Smooth and with lovely, gentle carbonation. Served in trappist glass, and it suits this beer well.

Bottled, thanks Tbone! Hazy amber, mid sized head. Aroma of smoke and rye bread. Sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Lots of smoke with light rubbery tones, plenty of dough, notes of grapefruit. Peppery mid bitter finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2014 Batch 13/5. Pours hazy reddish dark brown with small light tan head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma: malt, pine, fruits, rye in the background. Taste: malty, citrus, some spices, rye again is just a hint. Finish is long and bitter grapefruit. Medium carbonation. Overall: nothing exciting or special, but not really bad. I had it once before (maybe batch 2?) and I remembered it being better.
Edit: it’s confirmed by Põhjala that they made some changes for this batch. The changes include adding body and hops, and also switching to new hops.
Edit 2: tried again a month or so ago from tap at Drink Baar, it was totally different beer. Clearly shared a lot of similarities with Esimene Sorts and Uus Pruut. Not a bad beer, but nothing special
