Eilen avatun pullon pohjat. Mustanpunertava, vaahdoton ja hapoton, tuoksussa kahvia ja maitosuklaata. Liukas suklaastouttimainen suutuntuma, leipäisä, öljyinen, laimeahko. Ei mitenkään erityisen hyvää.

65 cl bottle (9.3% abv) @ ISKTR V.
Pours black color with a large beige head. Woody aroma, chocolate, cocoa, dark malts and some dark fruits too. Flavor is chocolaty, bitter dark malty, cocoa powder with subtle burnt notes and vanilla. Creamy, full-bodied, coffee on the aftertaste. Quite nice and pleasant, maybe a bit too dry and burnt.

Thanks to gregwislonstl for sharing this one. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. The aroma has roast, soy, dark chocolate and dark caramel. It has a medium/full body with some light carbonation. The flavor starts with dark chocolate, ice cream malt, some spices, anise and astringency. The finish has spices, dry cocoa and roast. Nice.

Good coffee aroma. Some licorice. Taste good but cloying sweet. Low level carbonation. Seems under fermented. Ok effort, may be age in bottle.
