275ml botle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki)
Rich, deep red, small persistent head. Malt loaf aroma, including some raisins, rich, quite aged. A touch woody. Dark, can’t see throughit, small beige head. Rich in the mouth - lots going on. Suddenly there’s great deep roast that wasn’t apparent from the aroma, quite burnt and dry. Get some christmas pudding later in aroma. Lots of woodiness, quite a dryness to the finish. Has a great "wanna take another sip" quality. Way more roasted thean your average BW, but a worthy member of the group. Enjoyed every sip.
