oh6gdx (20217) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 24, 2011
Bottled (from Utobeer, London). Very deep ambery brown colour, close to black, with a big foamy beige head. Aroma is nutty, roasted malts, some quite ashy notes as well as some mild earth. Flavour is ashes, some roasted malts, mild nuttyness as well some slight dark fruits. Rather pleasant but on the border to too much ashes and roast.

On tap at the Rake. Clear mid brown beer with a ghost of a cream coloured head. Light dry airy palate. Smoky malt and lots of bitterness sit oddly in the context of the palate. A trace of orangey hop - well buried. Finishes dry and bitter. Hmmm smoke, bitter and dry with no other features. This was never going to work for me!

Pours nice clear chestnut with a small, staying, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, raisins, peat, chocolate. Light carbonation, super dry mouthfeel. Flavour has very little sugar left, smoke, oak, chocolate, light liqourice. Long, lingering malty bitter finish. Lovely balance.
