Drank side by side with ngne two captains. This was good, yet lags behind on all aspects. As a finnish beer this is smething really different and well balanced, but compared to two captains, well... Sweet aroma of caramel, glue and alcohol. Balanced mouthfeel and a somewhat bitter aftertaste. Was expecting a bit more refreshing taste. Good in general, as a finnish beer - excellent.

0,5L Bottle from local Alko liquor store. Pours nice deep golden, amber colored beer with slightly off white head. Nose; citric, herbal, malts and some yeast. Reminds me of the La chouffe Houblon. Taste; dried, dark fruits, citrus fruits in the hops. Well balanced with the sweetness of the malts. A bit of toffee. Very nice body and long lasting aftertaste. A price winning beer to me.

Bottle at home. Pours dark golden with big off-white head. Aroma is citrus, malts and caramel. Taste has citrus, roasted malts and caramel. Quite low bitterness for an imperial IPA. Good otherwise.

Makea, pihka, mntysuopa, kitker greippisitrusjlkimaku. Komea vaahto ja runsas suutuntuma.

Utuisen ruskea olut pienehkll, beigell vaahdolla, joka jtt kivan ohuen vaahtokerroksen jlkeens. Tuoksu suorastaan mainio. Makean karamellisen maltainen, mutta samalla mys siirappinen, havuinen ja aniksella hystetty. Hedelmkin tst lytyy aavistus. Maun osalta ensin huomaa vahvan karamellisen makean maltaisuuden hykkvn plle. Loppupuolella humalan katkeruus nousee vahvasti esiin greippisell hysteell. Jlkimaku on kuitenkin vahvimmin maltaisen makea ja huulissa huomaa tahmaisen makeuden. Itse asiassa jlkimaku on todella pitk ja makean maltaisuuden lisksi mys mausteisen greippinen. Tytelinen suutuntuma, hiilihappoja vhisesti. Jlleen kerran huippuluokan olut Vakka-Suomelta. Omaan makuun mennn siin rajoilla, onko greippisyytt jo liikaa.

500ml Bottle - Copper red with a foamy head. Pine, caramel, grapefruit and some slightly earthy notes in the aroma. Pine, nuts, caramel and grapefruit all feature in the resinous and fruity taste.

Sparf (269) - SWEDEN - JUN 7, 2016
Behagligt rund och fyllig arom med bde st malt och en tung, snarare n frisk, barrskogsbeska. Mrkt brun frg. Disig brygd med jstfllning. Ttt, fint strukturerat skum med mycket lng halveringstid. Mycket stor smak med fulldig, krmig karamellstma som inte matchas tillrckligt av beskan. Hade behvt en annan humlekomposition. verfyllig kropp men en vl avvgd kolsyra. Eftersmaken br en djup men inte fr kraftig beska.

Bottle in our shabby Helsinki apartment. Hazy reddish deep amber beer, bubbly pale cream colour head. Palate is a little soft, modest carbonation. Caramel toffee malts, creamy sweetness. Ripe fruits, sweet esters, mild citric peel and even milder bitterness. More caramel and dried fruits before a smooth semi dry finish. So ... just had Stadin American Barleywine which is double ipa like and now Prykmestar Double IPA which tastes like a barleywine. Tsk! Brewers eh? Wotcha ya gonna do? Decent.

Murky dark brown colour, small tan head with some bubbles. Strong and smooth malty aroma, some caramel and raisins. Malty bitter taste but not overpoweringly so. Soft, oily mouthfeel, light carbonation. Nice earthy double IPA.
