Turboninja (130) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2015
Strong/medium aroma with licorice, vanilla and some malts. Pitch black with medium beige head. Strong taste with licorice, vanilla and cocoa, which is the distinctive part of this beer. Some malts can be tasted also. Very smooth and balanced. Wide taste spectrum and long aftertaste with licorice, malts and some hops. Full body wit soft carbonation. Overall one of my favorite Imperial Stouts: top-notch performer with the twist.

Ez a béka sem szarral gurigázik, az biztos! Nagyon mély, keserű csokis, likőrös, fakormos, kissé fanyar, és igen erős íze van, testes, mint egy sumo birkózó. Szerintem zab nélkül szinte bántóan száraz és reszelős lenne, így pont jó!

Def my style of stout. I believe the oats give this beer its smoothness. This one pours very dark with a nice light color head. Great feel and smoothness. This one goes down easy. Taste the chocolate and roasted oat Malts. Enjoy my friends.

Marstonlad (499) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle at Kaisla, Helsinki. Pours pitch black with a little brownish head, an oily impression. The aroma has notes of whisky and vanilla; it also features strong roasty maltiness with coffee and chocolate - very rich. Taste is initially medium sweet, later bending gracefully toward a bitter, hoppy finish that sets this version apart from the barrel aged one. Intense maltiness dominates, but the balance is well kept as also hoppy notes are around. The palate is full-bodied, velvety smooth and flat in carbonation. Brilliant.

Dark brown, light ruby tinge, ringed tanny head. Creamy liquorice, dusty oat. Creamy rich choc, slick mouthfeel throughout and little earthy towards the finish. Lush mouthfeel really, linger is chocco milk. 2009 Vintage.
