Nice christmassy spicy aroma. Dark treacle hints. Mixed peel too. Mellow, nicely attenuated and aged. No way this is 8%. A touch of toffee in the taste, and some aged yeastiness too. Suspect this should be a S/H/V rather than an ESL. Either way, it’s delicious!
My Bottom Line:olio (10692) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 6, 2012
Spicy hops manage to protrude from this powerful brew’s almond-laced caramel malts, building a nuanced, if unmemorable, sipper.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam bobs atop the glowing amber.
-This is more effervescent than the average for the region, but it actually helps in this case.
-This is drier than expected, which increases drinkability.
-Marzipan notes roam about.
On tap at the brewery restaurant.

Aroma of grass, fruits and spices. Flavor of mild fruits, spices and malts, some grain also.
Nose: Mustardy, spicy, some sweet toffeeish tones. Some alcohol.
Mouthfeel: Soft and quite full.

Bottled, from Snekutis, Vilnius. Deep golden, rich head. Juicy floral nose. Sweet and fruity with medium-full body. Soapy and rustic with notes of butter. Dense and soft, juicy and sweaty, alcolol is well hidden. Some late herbal bitterness.

Clear copper color, tan head. Malty, butterscotch and alcohol scent. Sweet, lots of alcohol, a bit acidic taste. Medium mouthfeel and bitterness.
Bottled. Pale amber coloured with a small tan head. Sweet and malty with notes of fruit, caramel, alcohol, bread and hops. Ungstrup (38958) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 18, 2007
Bottled. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet matly with strong notes of caramel and fruit, and lesser notes of alcohol. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of over ripe fruits, and light notes of alcohol, leading to a dry bitter end, where the alcohol still is present.
