Draught@SOPP Turku 2012
Pitch black color, small beige head. Toasted malts, coffee in the nose. Medium-bodied. a bit oily palate. Coffeish-chocolaty flavor, some sweet caramel, late hoppyness. This is quite nice strong boring although some vegetables are hiding behind the corner.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap (SOPP2012, Turku)
Fairly full roast aroma, but again (after 3 other Kuninkaankartano beers) it’s minerally - it must be the local water. Full body, rich roast, but a bit thin and flat. Finish has more roast, leaves a pleasant feel in the mouth. Dissapointing after the look - so dark, such a large tight viscous beige head. Adequate, but never saying "drink (more of) me". Finished the glass, so better than the previous 3. As it warms I’m happier that it deserved the 3.3.

Draught @ SOPP Helsinki 2012
Pours pitch black with a nice smooth light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, some yeasty and herbal notes. Taste is malty, roasty and slightly hoppy with some herbal notes and some off-flavors. Finish is smooth and malty with some roasty notes. Okay, but feels like something is a bit off here.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Black, with slight tan head. Soft, full flavoured roasted malts, some chocolate, yeasty flavors. Some licorice, anis even. Spices and herbal notes though. Tasty, but a raw ale. Soft, and full, but with the yeasty, unfiltered characters you find in homebrews and alike.
