Juusto (37) - - JAN 22, 2013
0,5l bottle at home. Pours clear dark reddish brown, tiny head. Aroma is combination of pleasant smoke and light juniper (first bottle I tasted had much more juniper in it) Nice aftertaste and palate. If you like smoked beers, you cannot go wrong with this!

Dark brown color with beige head. Aroma of smoke with malts and ham. Taste goes the same way along with juniper which gives it nice sweetness. Excellent smoke beer

Villyzzz (236) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 3, 2016
Tap at Olutexpo 2016. Pours dark brown with medium sized light beige head. Aroma is smoke with some dried ham. Taste is rye bread and ham. Quite carbonated. Medium finish. Quite nice.

JorisPPattyn (9672) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 13, 2016
Medium to good if not very dense, darker cream-coloured head over nearly black beer with a ruby sheen. Rich smoked ham nose, bit of watercolour/gouache, smoked beechwood, beechbark, parsley. Sweet-smoked, with touches of maple syrup, ketjap manis, orangepeel, preserved orange, sweet BBQ sauce, and of course, smoke/phenols. Feels better carbonated than it looks, very oily-oozy, well-bodied. Sweeter than most smoked, but original and rewarding indeed. Kiitos, Teemu!

jercraigs (10089) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2016
2016-09-10. Very dark body, modest head. Aroma is quite smokey in a way that reminds me of a sushi restaurant for some reason. Is umami aroma a thing? Flavour is less prominently smokey but still plays a big role. Interesting fruit touches, something beneath that I cant put a name too. Average plus bodied palate, good carbonation. Not necessarily to my tastes but exceptionally interesting. 7-8/3/7/3/14-15 Bottle shared by Timo from Finland.

Linkiewitz (105) - Warsaw, POLAND - SEP 20, 2016
Aromat: Przyjemnie wędzone, wraz z aromatami szynki i ogniska, ktre wprost buchają z butelki. Wygląd: Ciemny brąz, z szybko opadajacą pianą. Smak: Niespodziewana (hehe) analogia do aromatu - znw mamy do czynienia z wędząką spod znaku szynki i ogniska, lecz tym razem idzie ona w akompaniamencie suszonych owocw i karmelu. Co ciekawe, piwo pomimo swojego woltażu i ciała jest bardzo subtelne w odbiorze, zaś alkohol nie jest wyczuwalny w żaden nagatywny sposb, Najbardziej interesujacym punktem jest posmak, gdzie na prowadzenie wychodzą owoce, z bananem i jałowcem na czele co pokazuje druga, prawdziwie fińską stronę tego piwa - sahti.

rostetti (273) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 16, 2016
Bottle from Alko. Pours dark with small head. Aroma is woody, smoked, smoked meat and sausage. Taste is smoked meat and sausage, some juniper wood and sweet too. Not a beer for me unfortunately, but it is not a bad beer at all.

MartR (329) - Aespa, ESTONIA - APR 24, 2016
Looks dark amber with a thick creamy head. Nice intense smoked malts on the nose. Tasting adds sweet malts and caramel to the overall smokiness. What a nice balance between the caramel sweetness and smoky goodness. Strong beer, though 9% barely detectable. Im guessing the spiciness comes from the juniper because I cant really get the taste. Overall very versatile and flavorful. Great taste experience.

larsga (7381) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 16, 2016
Medium beige head. Hazy deep dark red body. Smoky earthy aroma with rye crisp bread notes. Sweetish smoky earthy juniper taste with mealy toffee notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, slightly flat, soft mouthfeel. Sweetish earthy smoky lingonberry aftertaste with mealy juniper notes. Vaguely reminiscent of stjrdalsl, but lacks the immense depth of the home-made malts. (0.5l bottle, from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki.)

Henkk4 (35) - FINLAND - FEB 22, 2016
Hazy dark brown with beige head. Aroma is strong smoke, licorice, and woody. Medium to full body with light sweetness, oily texture and soft carbonation. Finishes somewhat bitter. This was my first of this style and its actually surprisingly good.
