4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Intensiv schokoladiger Antrunk, vollmundig. Das Bier schmeckt in weiten Teilen wie flüssige Schokolade, dickflüssig, Kakao. Dabei ist kurzfristig der Alkohol erkennbar, er wirkt aber nur wärmend und wird durch das Malz sofort wieder verdrängt. Im Abgang geringfügig süß. Wow! 8/14/9/13//13

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle (Viisi Pennia, Helsinki)
Lovely rich darkish chocolate aroma, some chocolate cake, big and bold, but also soft and welcoming. Black, and the darkest head since old koff porter. Loveloy smooth palate, just staying clear of slickness, but with moussey carbonation. Initial tastes are quite mellow with the burntness, but the ashiness does build over time. Vanilla does help keep it mellow, but it can’t beat the enormous roast. finish is burnt, and sticky. It’s not lacking hops, there’s quite a bitterness to it but sometimes burntness and old hops overlap. Very nice.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. Pitch black beer, pours oily and has minimal head. Deeply roasted, slightly smoky nose, licorice, dark ripes, dark syrup and a hint of vanilla. Insanely malty. Flavor starts syrupy sweet, continues with a hint of balsamico. Slightly tarry and salty finish has generous bitterness, sligthly sweet/fruity hop flavor and very dark chocoalte. Slightly sugary finish and acidic roastedness. Extremely full bodied, oily mailtiness, thick and lush. If you like your IS really malty and you don’t a little sweetness, this is yours!
