3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap (Bruuveri, Helsinki)
Black, small tight beige head. Rich burnt aroma, a touch ashy. Full smooth palate, nice carbonation. Simple richly roasted taste, quite burnt, and with an almost gingery tingle, and an almost salty bite. Finish fairly burnt, not astringent, and with some earthy hops too. Well balanced, nice to feel and taste some hops in a stout of this strength.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Bruuveri. Black color. Strong tropical and citrusy aroma with coffee in the background. The taste begins with coffee and leather with now citrus, tropical fruits and petrol in the background. Bitter, coffeish and tropical finish with dry hoppiness. The roastedness is soft and does not detract from hops, which is a good thing. To me this is more like a black IPA.
