oh6gdx (20333) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 3, 2012
Bottled (thanks Kim N!). Black colour with a small beigeish brown head. Aroma is chocolate, mild tobacco, some raisins, quite sweetish malts and mild sweet alcohol as well. Flavour is mild liquorice, chocolate, some toasted malts, sweet alcohol as well as mild honeylike notes. Mild burnt and ashy wooden notes as well. Rather bodied and nice.

laiti (5694) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 2, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2013 50 cl bottle @ Gastropub Nordic, BBE 16.03.2013
Aroma is sweet with syrup, roasted notes, honey and cocoa. Also hints of metal. Flavour has well roasted malt, some dark chocolate. Very sweet, sugary finish with coffee. A bit too much on the sweet side but good anyway. Drinking big amounts this would be challenging though. 6+4+7+3+15=3.5

50 cl bottle @ HeBF’13, BBE 16.11.2013
Aroma has well roastiness, cocoa, grilled meat, smoke and distant spicy notes. Flavour has well roasted malt, some spicy notes, grilled meat with BBQ sauce, coffee and some cocoa. Smooth and nice, better than I remembered. Still too sweet though.
7+4+7+4+15=3.7

Oakes (12561) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 25, 2012
Very dark brown. No head. The aroma is mostly molasses, not bad but without much nuance. Chewy and dense albeit lacking in nuance and complexity.
