3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Kaisla, Helsinki. A dark brown color with a little white head. Aroma of roasty maltiness, slightly stout-like impression, as is implied by the color too. Notes of chocolate, caramel and dark fruitiness appear. Taste is more in tune with doppelbocks: it starts medium sweet and ends with a dry malty finish. Flavours include bready and nutty maltiness with caramel a touch of dark fruitiness. Medium bodied, a bit sticky, moderately carbonated palate. Nicely rich dark doppelbock, not bad at all.
