mjs (6395) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 17, 2016
(Cask at St. Urho’s Pub Portteri- ja Stout-päivät 2016) The beer poured clear and nearly black. Its head was small, dense and lightly brown. Aroma had burnt malts and liquorice. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were burnt malts, ash, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was ashy and bitter. A too burnt and watery brew.
