Spruce, caramel malt, and raspberry aroma. Dark chestnut brown with giant tan head. Moderately sweet caramel malt, and mildly bitter spruce and hay flavor. Good body. Smooth - hides its strength well.

330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet Langnes. A fawn-coloured head leaving spotty lacing on the glass. A deep ruby shade to a near-black body. Earthy malts and dried fruits on the nose. Well blended taste of apricot, prunes and caramel malts, slightly spiced. Jam-like ending. Well bodied and quite harmonious in the mouth. Fits the winter season. (Tromsø 16.02.2019).

Draught @ Malt & Mold (11/21/18). Murky reddish brown with small frothy beige head, sweet caramel aroma, high carbonation, medium bitter spicy caramel taste with boozy flavor and spices, thin body, long boozy finish. Feels to have a higher ABV than it actually has.

50cl bottle from Uba ja Humal, Tallinn. Pours dark copper coloured with a fairly large, light beige head. Malty and slightly spicy aroma with caramel , dried fruits and hints of spruce and wood. Medium sweet with fairy mild, but pleasant flavours. Less sweet and more balanced than expected. Quite enjoyable.
