3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, 0.5 l - brewed 20120403, at Oluttupa Viisi Penniä, 20130112) The beer poured black. Its head was medium sized and light brown. Aroma had roasted malts, green pepper and coffee. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were roasted malts, coffee and bitterness. The green pepper in the aroma and in the taste was confusing but not bad. I would really like to taste coffee used in brewing this beer. Nice.

Deep dark roasty concrete. Black but light, roasty, but light doesn’t do too much for m3. Really simple to me despite the coffee elements which are just too thin.
