Dark brown ale-style beer with a rich creamy head. Its flavor characteristics include bread crust, coffee and dark chocolate, and its aroma resembles caramel and roasted malt - this brew is a must for all beer lovers.

Draught @ the brewpub
Aroma is quite nice with coffee notes, nuts, and some cocoa. Flavour is a bit odd and somewhat syrupy with roasted notes, coffee and dark chocolate. Perhaps a bit harsh and too syrupy but still better than I expected. This gives burps with Koulu house aroma or then it was the Munk I had before this. Go figure.

Aroma improves as this warms up but flavour is still same milk chocolate and syrup. Tastes even sweeter now. Perhaps also some ashy tones.

Draught@brewpub 27.5.13 Opaque black color, small brownish head. Medicinal and coffeish aroma. Light bodied. Ashy flavor has coffee and some dark chocolate. Quite watery palate, but flavor is better than aroma is promising.

visionthing (2399) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2013
25cl on tap at the brewpub. Dark mahogany with a minimal beige head. Roasty aroma with licorice, some dark fruits, dark malt and hints of smoke and wood. Medium sweet with mild, but pleasant roasty flavours and a light bitterness. Medium body with a quite lively carbonation. Decent stout!

jann3 (73) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 20, 2013
A pitch black color. Minimal head that left no lacing. Very soft carbonation. Sweetish aroma with notes of roasted malt and caramel. Taste is quite similar, but there is slightly bitter notes in the finish. The palate is quite thin, but still pleasant and tasty. Simple but drinkable stout. (Keg at "Kochi Ait" -brewpub).

jookos (1523) - FINLAND - OCT 15, 2013
Tap@brewpub. Black. Very inviting nose. Roasty, with some vinous tones and salty licorice. Some vanilla, as if its been oak aged. Body dissapointedly thin and mellow. Has some nice chocolate, roastedness, but overall a bit bland, considering the good nose in this thing.

(Keg at Kochi Ait Trahter, 20130703) The beer poured almost black. Its head was medium sized and light brown. Aroma had burnt malts and liquorice. Palate was quite light bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were burnt malts, liquorice, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was burnt and bitter. The beer has potential but it too thin.

FatPhil (8604) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 26, 2013
Tap (Kochi Ait, Tallinn)
Rich sweetish, touch estery, roasty, even a touch of coffee, aroma. Basically black, persistent small tight tan head.Slightly thin palate for a beer so dark, I wnted something fuller. Crisp carbonation. Simple dark roast, atouch on the coffee side again. Finish a little brief, just some continuation of the roast, but even that goes quickly. Perhaps a bit fizzy, and even a little watery. Touch boring for a stout, and too fizzy. Im curious at the logic that makes your stout your weakest beer, weaker even than the "pale lager". Guinness is not the icon you should be bowing to. But even that has more body. More could be done in this direction, Estonians and Finns are not going to be frightened of a 6% black beer (many would probably welcome it).
