This is a very nice light roast and hoppy black IPA, it's very nicely balanced. My tongue is a little burned from chili

lusikka (6029) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2013
650 ml bottle, thanks to me, myself and I. Pours a black colour with a creamy beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, salty licorice, resin, caramel and pine. Flavour is very rich with strong floral hoppiness, roastiness, pine needles, spruce, salty licorice, dark chocolate, some coffee and mild herbal notes. Full bodied, slick mouthfeel and very soft carbonation. Long lingering bitter finish with floral bitterness, roastiness and some salt. Excellent balance. Oh my, this is good.

olio (5935) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2013
65 cl bottle.
Pours jet black color with a medium sized beige head. Aroma is very roasty and savory hoppy, some resin and pine needle notes appear also, caramel malts, salmiac and some faint hints of peppermint round things up nicely.
Flavor of roasted malts, lots of citric fruits, resinous hops, licorice notes, some wood and even some coffee on the background. Medium carbonation, burnt malty palate with a bitter hoppy kick. The hoppy bitterness turns eventually to almost creamy lingering licorice finish. Excellent.
