Had it a while back at Speakeasy by Põhjala and didn’t take notes. I remember quite liking it though, I got a lot of surprising coffee notes rather than chocolate or liqorice; the drinkability was excellent, the palate soft and smooth, lightish and roasty. Easygoing and well done stuff, would not have minded having one after another.
