Olvi Tulapukki - more sauna, more beer
Tulapukki is Finish and means „double buck „. The label shows two bucks. “Double buck” means “Doppel bock” in Germany. Ratebeer classifies the beer as a “malt liquor” where beeradvocate states “European strong lager”. I would say it’s a Doppelbock, nothing more nothing less.
The abv is 8.5%. It took me some time to get used to it. I normally drink beers with around 4 – 5 %. Though, the alcohol is everywhere, but there’s more. Its smell is malty, caramel, floral and a perhaps a little acetaldehyde.
But, there is still more. The taste is sweet, bitter, refreshing, little mouthcoating and perhaps a little stale. But that’s probably because the beer was some weeks over its best before. Anyway,
I still think it’s a good Doppelbock. Nothing more – nothing less.
The beer was poured from a bottle.
