Bottle 33 cl. Pours black with small fast vanishing brown tan head. At first taste is very smooth and rounded with some harsh in it and a nice alcohol warmth. Notes of roasted malts, salty licorice, coffee, dark chocolate. Slightly too harsh at end. Needs something to balance the harsh aftertaste with. After getting used to it the harsh aftertaste mellows down a bit revealing more tasting sides of this one.

Positiivinen yllätys. Tuhti, reipas tiukka maku. Hyvin paahtunut, eli siinä kitkerän rajalla.

MartR (280) - Aespa, ESTONIA - JUL 16, 2016
Oh wow.. what’s the funky taste. I can’t get a hold of it. Feels like lactose, but it’s not. Coffee definitely, but not only that. Melted and burnt chocolate. Nicely full bodied and reasonably toasted (roasted). I also get some hoppiness. At first the booze was tickling a bit and later the hop bitterness takes over. Well good, that’s what I wanted.

A nice imperial stout that borders right on the edge of being too sweet but doesn’t go over. Very thick with a full roasted malt body. Good stuff.

Opaque dark brown beer, big fluffy tan head. Airy palate, mildly dry. Reasonable fine carbonation. Smooth dark malts, a little dark chocolate. Light tang. Touches of dark fruits and coffee. Malty dark chocolate finish, like dark chocolate malteasers. A light and approachable RIS.
