Dark brown color, creamy head disappeared so fast. Sweet herbal aroma. Taste was sweet, strange herbal taste also (something like Jäägri õlu some years ago). Before Wild dark drank Puls Jõuluporter - same taste. One beer, two labels?

It tastes like a soda with a hint of beer. Sweet and no taste at all. Disappointment.

MartR (330) - Aespa, ESTONIA - JAN 15, 2017
Herbal grassy notes in taste. Bitterness from herbs or hops. Sweet palate as base. Sweet light bodied beers are not something I favor. Feels unbalanced and not clean. Messy brew, but drinkable enough to finish the glass.

Ok sweetness on the nose and overall nice darker beer, perhaps for christmas beer and happy holidays as almost rootbeer-ish, licorice, raisins and so-on. It is fine.

lusikka (7757) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 12, 2014
500 ml bottle. Thanks rosenbergh. Pours a dark brown colour with a small head. Aroma of toasted malts, salt, sweat and mild bread. Flavour of cough medicine, some herbs, unclean yeastiness, repulsive sweetness, bread and salty licorice. Light bodied and thin mouthfeel. Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaad.

500 ml bottle. BB 09/12/2014. (Maksimarket) Laagri, Estonia.
Dark reddish brown colour with a tiny white head. Spices and sweetness in the aroma. The flavour is spices, cough drops, sweetness, Coke and some malt mixed together. Very bad beer. Watery.

50 cl bottle. Thanks rosenbergh!
Pours dark copper color with a a small off-white head. Lots of dark berries on the nose, earthy, malty and sugary. Sweet sugary and malty flavor, some faint berry notes as well as some anise. Disturbingly sweet and messy.
