3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pitch black, small tan head. Aroma of licorice, salted licorice. Lots of roasted malts, color malt, ash and tobacco. Toasted aftertaste. It’s more simple than Mister Frederiksen and has a bit too much tobacco in it for being as good as Hr..

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours dark brown with a slight tan head. Aroma of near burnt dark malt with a hint of chocolate. Med body, maybe better. Flavor is slightly "sour" dark burnt malt with some dark chocolate and probably a ggod dose of bitter hop. With time it develops a touch smoke. Nice stuff.

500ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki)
7 Rich dry unsweetened bitter chocolate aroma
4 almost black small tight head
8 Lovely rich burnt roast, bitter and chocolatey ob swallowing. Retronasals quite sharp, some hoppiness.
4 refreshing carbonation, crisp at first, but softens on the tongue with the sweet body. Finish continues the hops from the retronasals but they settle down into being quite bitter and dry and almost papery.
15 A really good sipper. We made this last almos an hour and every sip was great.
