Dark brown color, small creamy brown head. Light roasted aroma. Medium-bodied. Coffee, herbal hoppyness, alcohol, roasted aftertaste. Balanced. Quite different than their normal stout. Same time easy and difficult. Needs more studying.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2010 (Draught at Pikkulintu) The beer poured black with small and light brown head. Aroma had roasted malts, coffee and hops. Palate was full bodied. Flavours were hops, ash, roasted malts, coffee and bitterness. Aftertaste was roasty and bitter. The aroma and the taste of this beer have nothing new but still the combination is surprising in a pleasant way. This deserved another try..

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught@Pikkulintu) Interesting, fruity aroma hops in this, with licorice notes. Initially quite burned, but that went away rather quickly. Some sourness, black coffee. Quite nice and balanced - but like TBone said, this one "needs more studying". 5546
