330ml bottle. Minimally milky, reddish amber colour with a thin layer of crystalline-white bubbles. Slightly smoky-peaty, fruity, herbal aroma, hints of cherry, honey, juniper, coniferes, peat. Taste is herbal-spicy, minimally ashy, peaty, dry leafy, hints of juniper, coniferes, subtle sweetness with a touch of honey and cherry; well hidden alcohol, papery dryness. Clearly discernible idea, some off-flavours frustrate a better result.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Many thanks to rosenbergh for this bottle, 9.5%ABV! Nose of dry sweet malt, malt-candy. The beer starts fresh and aromatic, round and sweetish with a nice spicy-herbal aroma in the body. Spice, caramel, fruity hints. Very interesting and highly drinkable with a warming alcohol in the back. The carbonation level is very low, fresh and fruity, moderate bitter with lots of dry-burned caramel in the aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled at Black Door, Helsinki. Cloudy copper colour, no head. Fruity nose with banana, rye bread, bubblegum and juniper. Sweet with medium-full body and rounded, oily mouthfeel, no carbonation. Rye bread dough, bandaid, juniper, honey, caramel and banana meet in a heavy, potent concotion fuelled by peppery alcohol.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle [from trade with Rosenbergh, thnx!] @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus, Joes and Ansjelaah. Nice dark red color, average sized quite quickly diminishing off-white head. Aroma is lightly malts, pretty sweet, sweet fruit. Tastes about the same: sweet, sweet red fruit, strawberry. Hard to describe but quite nice, I like it.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
330 ml bottle (9.5%) @ Maja/Talo Tampere
Orange-brown clear beer with no head. Turns murky when you pour the yeast. Aroma has sweet ripe banana, vanilla and light juniper. Flavor is dry and sour with heavy juniper, with some banana and other fruitiness on the side. Palate is quite full and soft. Finish is dry and sour with lots of juniper. Aroma was nice but the flavor is really unrefreshing and untasty, not really pleasant to drink the whole bottle.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from rosenbergh. Thanks Jan! Pours an amber color with almost no head. Caramel, spice, juniper, slight leather aromas. Sweet malts, bananas, cardboard, caramel flavors. Minimal carbonation. Doesn’t feel at all like a 9% beer, actually kind of light-medium bodied with no alcohol in the flavor. Very interesting beer.
