Juseq (158) - FINLAND - AUG 15, 2013
Aroma has roasted malts and coffee with hops even with additional toffee and licorice. Flavor is quite hoppy and even a bit buttery with coffee and roasted malt. Mouthfeel is quite dry. Aftertaste is somewhat bitter but has quite a lot of alcohol. Really disliking the alcohol in the aftertaste. Also not a lot of deep flavors, just a hoppy stout.

FatPhil (9007) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 5, 2013
UPDATED: APR 21, 2014 660ml bottle (Kaisla, Helsinki)
Super rich roasty aroma, chocolate and smooth, sweetish, but lovely zingy spicy aromatic hops too. Mellow. Served at a good temperature, not too cold. Very full palate, soft and smooth. Deep roast, rich and chocolatey, but not astringent at all. Hops relatively subdued beside the huge roast, but still there quite clearly - spicy. Love the way it is very big, but not aggressive. Just a hoppy stout, no need to invent a new style for these. Very nice hoppy stout.
