COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed for HOK Elanto pubs as beer of the month for October 2008. HOK Elanto say: <blockquote> Laitilan Kievari Schwarz on 4,5-prosenttinen, lähes läpinäkymätön, hienostuneen paahteinen ja täyteläinen pohjahiivaolut. Laitilan panimoammattilaiset ovat valmistaneet mustalle oluelle perinteisen, paljon käymättömiä sokereita sisältävän pohjan. Oluen makeutta tasapainottaa tummien maltaiden suklainen karvaus ja hienonhieno, pieteetillä viritetty humalointi.</blockquote> EBC 84, EBU 10

Served into a snifter, ABV 4.5% Dark brown red colour on the body, small light brown head with good density and retention. Light lacing left around the glass. Aroma of chocolate, toasted malts. Taste has light floral notes, light chocolate, toasted malts again, something herbal in it too. Faint bitterness on the aftertaste. Thin body, okay carbonation. Overall okay, a bit boring.
