A-Clear ruby, not much carbonation one finger head.

S-Smoke, wood, juniper berries, spices, grass and caramel

T-Unbalanced, juniper, wood and smoke, not all together. Caramel and molasses as well.

M-Medium bodied, not much carbonation.

O-DFH's was better. Balance needs to be improved but still then nothing in this beer sticks out.

From undated bomber but states Batch #1.

Aroma is sweet musky flowers. Pours deep coppery red with a thin non-lasting off white head.
Taste is like a sour version of an Irish red ale, actually very off putting! I was expecting something more Gin-like . This tastes like it WAS dredged up from a thousand year old Viking ship! Caveat to the reader, I never drank a Sahti before so I may not be the best guide to this brew! (But this brew makes me sure not to drink one again!).

A: This poured a clear garnet with some light tan head.
S: It smelled like copper hops and roasted barley, with some creamy yeast and a hint of juniper and caramel.
T: It tasted like sweet caramel and roasted barley malt, with some copper hops and creamy yeast. It had a clean and mild bittersweet aftertaste.
M: It was somewhat thick and oily with a little carbonation. Nice slick body.
D: I'm not sure where the Sahti character was, since no juniper was really noticeable. The scent and taste were like a red ale or Oktoberfest. Not unpleasant at all, but way off for the style (and therefore disappointing). Did I just sit on this too long, and all the uniqueness already faded?
