A massive malty and full bodied barley wine, brewed for the anniversary of Põhjala’s brewhouse.
Taste: Rich and assertive maltiness hits the tongue first, before a fragrant touch of nutmeg and ginger sneaks in. Lingering in the background notes before building up to a crescendo is a rich madeira wine, sherry like character, complimented by a decadent caramelised fig aftertaste.
Appearance: Pours a brilliantly clear mahogany red with a creamy off-white head.
Nose: Burnt caramel, toffee, and generous spices dominate the aroma, almost bringing to mind a liquid christmas cake. A waft of gentle sweetness rolls in to unite the whole aroma.
Malts: Pale malt, Melanoid Malt, Cara Pale, Cara 150, Cara 300
Hops: Magnum, Cascade, Goldings
