2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A- Black as night slides from the bottle to the glass without making even a thin head. I can just about see my reflexion in the beer . . . I’d much rather see head! (insert joke here!)
S- Coffee, roasted malt, LOTS of Hop aroma
T- Burned, bitter day old coffee. roasted malts, a bit of smoke. Like the smell, there is a significant hop presence and more burnt coffee. You can barely taste the 9% alc in this, I am guessing it is just covered up by the bitterness.
M&D - low carbonation and an almost slippery feel to it, not an unpleasant feel to it but not what i am usually looking for. I drink one and I am done, this may have more to do with the aftertaste though as I will say that for a 9% beer They hide the Alcohol very well.

7th September 2009
Clear dark red brown beer. Semi soft palate. Moderate carbonation. Immediate hop attack! Well balanced by even malt and a fairly light touch of coffee. Finish is neutral and not at all dry. Well balanced coffee beer. Great but not spectacular.

Deep black clear body. Creamy brown head with an excellent lace. Complex, yet subtle arome of strong malts, dark fruit, hops, smoke. Moderately bitter, moderately sweet flavour. Bit sticky/dry flavour. Very nice, not great.

Cremig röstiger Antrunk mit Aromen von Tannennadeln. Schokoladig herb, etwas rauchig. Auch eine deutliche Hopfennote ist vorhanden, die konstant hinter dem Malz liegt. Harmonisch aber recht eigen. 6/12/11/12/7/12

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle @ Pannuhuone, Kuopio. Bottled 09/11/2008.
Pours a dark brown, almost black colour with a small foamy head which fades quickly. Aroma of very strong wood and mild hops. Mild flavour of roasted malts, wood, black coffee and tobacco. Medium bodied with a thin mouthfeel and a roasted coffee finish with some hops. Unbalanced, probably because of the aging.
