3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Speakeasy by Põhjala. Near black body with a brief head. Fudgy, very full, chocolaty, vinous and syrupy arom, also cocoa. Not boozy. Very sweet, syrupy and vinous taste with a tingle of alcoholic warmth in the throat. Dense mouthfeel, flat carbonation, some bitterness in the finish, berries, slight ashiness... Great stuff!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Odd fruity aroma, gentle bacony sweet smokiness. Slightly harsh palate, a little acidic and burnt. Good roast though. Full and sweetish, leaves the lips sticky. A bit heavy and doesn’t do enough to hide its strength.
