3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Almost blackish beer with beige head on top. Aroma has slight liquor, some berries, roasted malts, espresso coffee, some berry note and liquor-like ending, a bit boozy after warming up. Full body and lowish carbonation. A slight disappointment, maybe the voyage from USA to Finland has taken its toll.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Cotteridge, Brum. Not far off black. Film of sticky, tan head. Nose has savoury, roast malts. Some bonfire toffee. Some herbal, grassy hop. Some under ripe berry fruit. Taste is thick, chewy, charcoal sweet. Big, fruity, roast malt bitterness. Lots of bitter tang. Mouthfeel is smooth and fairly bright, given the ABV. Fruity, tangy, roast coffee and chocolate bitter finish. Decent.
