martjoobolut (934) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 18, 2014
0,33L bottle, BB 03.10.2014. Pours pitch black with brown head. Aroma is coffee, roast, and alcohol. Taste is intense roast, licorice, coffee, alcohol, dark chocolate, and caramel. Finish is dry coffee bitter with some very mild sourness in the background. Overall: very good beer, but alcohol is a little bit too obvious (some imperial stouts have ABV 10+ and feel less boozy than this one); also I like more sweetness in my stouts.
