2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottled, BB 03/2010).
Very dark brown color, small off-white head. Bready, mämmi-like perfumic nose. Sour milky lactose, coffee, roasted malts then sugary finish with low bitterness. Chocolate notes are nice, but it is all. Combination of sweet porter and strong ale was not so successful.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown beer with small beige head. Aroma is complex and there are some sweetness, roasted malts, redberries and hint of sourness. Flavour is quite simple after nice aroma: malty, slightly roasted and quite dry. Quite easy and light to drink but still nice. Aroma was promised something special but flavour was quite simple and not-characteristic. Worth to try but propably I don’t buy this anymore.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Warm spiciness and some herbs in the sour chocolate aroma. Taste sour, a good balance and some licorice. Very enjoyable indeed, but the finish could be longer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle. Dark reddish brown colour, medium-sized light brown head. Aroma is rather sweet, with roasted malts and dark fruits. Sweet roasted malts and some fruitiness in the flavour. OK, but there’s room for improvement.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled) Very dark ruby brown with a medium, firm and tanned, mostly fading head. Toffee-caramely aroma with some strawberries and dark fruit. Flavor of caramely, lightly roasted maltiness, dark fruit, low bitterness, hints of blackberry, slightly metallic finish. Medium-bodied, slicky palate, medium carbonation. Clearly some effort has been put into this, but the result is still quite dull and boring. I wonder why there are pictures of hops in the label, as I couldn’t find any inside...
