3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very rich in flavour. Very temptating appearance. A pandoras box of tastes. After this beer, all other beers taste water for a while. I want to rate this quite high as a thanks to Laitilan Wirvoitusjuomatehdas for their good handcraft. Come on! Why it must be 9,2%, Although alcohol doesnt taste in the beer, you feel it next morning.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black, brown head that disappears quickly. Coffee, liquorice, raisins. Medium both in sweetness and bitterness, though the aftertaste is slightly harsh. Still, as always with imperial stouts, this is a strong and complex beer that warms both the palate and the heart.

Black beer with cinnamon colored head which disappears quickly. Lots of roasted malts coming to my nose. Some coffee and vanilla. Taste is dark, roasted malts and at the end turning into salty licorice feel. Low carbonation and thick mouth feel. Pretty good Imperial Stout.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with a thick brownish head forming on top. Aroma of roasted maltiness with espresso, some chocolate and rye bread. Taste is overall dryish, roasty and malty. Nice dark flavours with especially coffee prominent; alcohol hidden well. Full bodied, nearly flat. Good beer but there are better Finnish Imperial Stouts.
