2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours hazy brown with some yeast sediment and tan/orange head. Aroma is dark fruit, namely raisins and prunes. The flavor is an amplified version of the the aroma but with some heavier yeast notes. There is some sort of sour and chalky off-flavors in the flavor that inhibit its full potential. I would also like to taste a bit more malt character in this one but all in all not bad.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
355ml bottle (Kaisla, Helsinki)
Sweetish raisiny aroma, some woodiness, a bit tart and dry, dare I say it, even a bit sour (BB Aug 2018, drunk Jun 2016). Deep copper, brief head. Kinda watery palate, thinkened only with sugars, carbonation fairly pleasant. Somewhat milky taste - lacto about to kick in? Sweet caramelly malts, bit more raisin, with stalks for bitterness. Tastes a bit old and stale. I love bocks, but this is thin and in poor shape.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served in pint glass from 12 oz bottle
Appearance: Pours a 2" pillowy cream colored head that falls slowly with mild lacing. Color is cloudy copper-brown with some moderate streaming carbonation.
Aroma: rich malt flavors of caramel, fresh bread, raisins and ripe fruit. Earthy and herbal hops.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied and slightly astringent with a somewhat dry finish.
Flavor: similar flavors to the aroma. The alcohol is (dangerously) well hidden in this beer. It does not drink like an 8.2% abv beer, but more like a session ale.
Overall: a pleasing malt bomb. Recommended for anyone who enjoys malty brews.
