3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the Ukkometso, Tampere, Finland.
Dark reddish colour with a small whitish head. It wasn’t that bright in the bar but for me it wasn’t black - not even close.
Strong bitter hoppy aroma with resiny notes and sweet maltiness. The flavour is a bit darker malty with strong bitter hoppiness. Drinkable. Some alcohol there too.

500ml bottle. Clear dark brown colour with red glimmer, late awakening, average to huge, thick, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, and lacing, beige to tan head. Roasty dark malty aroma with citrusy and herbal hoppy overtones, lots of grapefruit, chocolately dark malty basis, hints of coffee, some orange, hints of resin and pine. Taste is moderately sweet, chocolately dark malty, hints of coffee, a touch of honey, fruity hoppy notes of orange, mandarine, a bitter hoppy and a bitter roasty dark malty touch, some resinous and piney hop. Fantastic beer, dangerously drinkable, well hidden alcohol.
