A unique brew. Has a complex and layered taste profile of rye, juniper/gin berries, plums and some chocolate in there. Not sure where that comes from. There is a herbal mint note in there too. Smooth with a jagged edge, this has a weighty feel to it without being too heavy.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours a dark brown color. 1/4 inch head of a tan color. Good retention and decent lacing. Smells of spruce, sweet malt, slight roasted malt, and a hint of spice. Fits the style of a Sahti. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of strong spruce, hint of spice, slight sweet malt, and a hint of roasted malt. Overall, good appearance, aroma, blend, and feel. The body is simple, but as I have read the categorical description of Sahti, that is sufficient.
