Turboninja (433) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 1, 2015
Tap @ Konttori, Tampere, Finland. Medium/strong aroma with a bit bitter licorice, vanilla and a hint of sweet coffee. Pitch black color with average beige head. Strong, salty taste with roasted malts, licorice and some smoke. Balanced. Wide taste spectrum and long aftertaste with bitter, slightly roasted malts. Medium body with low/medium carbonation. Overall bit too simple (few components) for this much taste and edge. Otherwise high quality product.

laiti (7887) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 27, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2016
Draught @ Tallinn Craft Beer Weekend 2015. Rated on 27.03.2015
Aroma has salty licorice, coffee and some soy sauce. Flavour has salty licorice. Feels somewhat watery for this ABV. And feels like export stout. Too salty for me.

Draught @ Amsterdam, Helsinki. Rated on 15.04.2016
Aroma has licorice and sweet malty notes. Flavour has somewhat salty licorice and some smoky tones. Also tobacco. Tasty and somehow this feels nostalgic – reminds me of some imperial stouts I used to love years ago.

erickok (5024) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 23, 2015
Wow, Pitch black and hugely sense, dark brown head. As you usually only see at the strongest of imperial stouts . Extremely chocolatey, dark roasted coffee, tat of toffee, tat of dark hops. Super impressive stuff, even more so at this abv. One of the best selling stouts I?ve had, ever. String bitterness of roasted rye bread. Solid carbonation yet I kept in sipping and supping. So tasty. An impressive brew from Buxton, again. One of the best stouts I?ve had this year easily, perhaps even even. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

jercraigs (9253) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 14, 2015
2015-03-04. Black body, headless. Aroma is sort of roasty and alcoholic, muted almost sherry like dark fruit. 7+ Flavour is similar, Dark malt with lightly chalky roast touches, mildly tangy dark malt and lingering chalky cocoa. Smooth average plus bodied palate, low carbonation. A touch more carbonation would help carry things along better, but the flavours just aren’t quite what I am looking for here. On tap at Birch & Barley, Washington DC.

Overheard:"He said ’eh’!"

(from 33cL bottle @ Mother Kelly’s, RBESG 2014, London)
