Giochaurand (411) - FINLAND - MAR 26, 2016
Bottle. Pours clear dark with creamy brown head. Aroma is coffee, earthy/peat, malts. Palate is full and oily. Taste is sweet, bitter with hints of syrup, liquorice and malts. Half of the bottle was used for cooking with shiitake mushrooms, and worked pretty well bringing umami taste quite nicely up.

JoTheO (102) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 19, 2016
Bottle from Systembolaget. Deep black with one of the darkest heads I’ve seen. Initially it’s like milk chocolate but turns a bit more pale. Aroma is sweet and complex, raisins, chocolate, some barley. Palate is wonderfully soft and velvety. Taste is initially sweet but the finish is surprisingly bitter.
