Vandet som kommer fra den sne der er på toppene om vinteren, filtreres gennem trækul for et fjerne alle urenheder, og bibeholder derfor alle dets smagsstoffer og mineraler. Alkohol: 11,5 %.

25 cl bottle @ Pikkulintu.
Rated on 20110729.
Pitch black colour with small head. Aroma of lots and lots of vanilla and chocolate, some whiskey-like alcohol too. Flavour of dark roasted malts, lots of vanilla, peat and some dry mocha-like chocolate. Palate is quite bitter but the after taste softens it down nicely.

RBESG Sheffield 2009 Grand Tasting @ the Harlequin. Black color, with a small brown head. Roasty malt aroma with lots of coffee,chocolate, some wood, alcoholic whisky notes. Taste is equally pleasing. Thick mouthfeel, full of roasty and bitter tastes, of malt and chocolate, some whisky hints, rather bitter finish. Good stuff.

25 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Pikkulintu. #1501, batch 52, BBE 20-03-2018
Aroma has lot of vanilla from bourbon. Flavour has somewhat stinging whiskey, but it does not disturb much though. More disturbing is the alcohol that comes trough. Some vanilla and hints of smoke do appear in the taste too. The whiskey dominates a bit too much.

250 ml bottle @ Olutravintola Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Batch #52, bottle #1029.
Pours a pitch black colour with a small, beige, foamy head. Aroma of sweet roasted malts, sausage, oak and some dried fruits. Flavour of roasted malts, sweet fruits, vanilla, oak and toffee. Medium bodied with a thin mouthfeel. It takes some time for the oak to kick in. Alcohol is very well hidden. Nice one.

250ml bottle @ Pikkulintu, Helsinki

Bottle #1029, batch 52 Pours pitch black with a nice beige head. Aroma has hints of oak, wood, vanilla and mild coffee. Taste starts out quite dry but finish is great with notes of oak, whisky and vanilla. Could’ve used a bit more body and roastiness. A bit unbalanced. Alcohol is well hidden.

25 cl bottle thanks to Jacob. Batch no 52. Pours a pure black color with a small brown head. The aroma is awesome; very rich dark fruits, some whiskey, smoke, ash, roast. The flavor is a dry bourbon-rich ale, some ash and roasted malts, dark chocolates, bitterness, metal, a bite. Very nice. Smooth almost tart fruits in the finish. Quite dry. Awesome. Give me this in a mug, a fire blazing, and a nice rocking chair and I’m in heaven.

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2012 Re-rated on May 9th: (25 cl bottle #205, batch 52 from Vinhjørnet) Palate could be thicker for the taste, ABV and colour. Re-rated on November 12th: (25 cl bottle #941, batch 52 from Vinhjørnet) Pretty much the same as initial rating. Girlfriend says: "It’s very smoky. It’s too strong for me." Initial rating on April 16th: (25 cl bottle #955, batch 52 from Vinhjørnet) Pours a deep black with light but long-lasting toffee head that laces the glass. Intense aroma of oak, bourbon and toasted malt. Hits the palate as a thick, oily substance, full-bodied with soft carbonation and a long, bitter finish. Taste is dark, toasted, coffee, bitter. Very, very smooth - like drinking a wooden barrel, but well balanced with bitterness.

Thanks to some Swedes for this tick. Pours very dark reddish brown with a few bubbles of light tan head. Big European stout aroma, with roast, anise, coffee, dark fruits, oak, whiskey, and booze. Excellent. Big dry roasty and licorice flavor with vinous notes lending some tannins, dark chocolate, and espresso. -bal aging is well integrated, with subtle oak and whiskey. Medium-full bodied with some tannins and soft carbonation. Smooth and slick on the palate. Overall very very tasty. Thanks Swedish guys.
