mateuszk (741) - Poznań, POLAND - JUL 23, 2015
Bottle. Pitch black, solid beige head. Aroma is massive and full of dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, licorice, dried fruits. In taste sweet with roastiness, chocolate, dried fruits, molasses, licorice. Alcohol is showing only with the warming effect. All is finished with strong bitterness, although the beer is still wuite sweet in the finish. Very thick, oily in texture, full bodied, softly carbonated. One of the best in the style.

375 ml bottle at home from notes. Pours black with a small tan head. The aroma is big roasted malt, ash, chocolate, dark fruits, vanilla with some coffee. The flavor is much of the same; dark roasted malt, chocolate, char, some smoke, dark fruit and caramel, boozy, very warming alcohol, big beer, had one years later that had mellowed a bit but still carried a pop.

Pours a thick black with mocha head. You should probably drink this with a spoon. Aromas are sweet cream, coconut milk, raspberry jam. Very dark chocolate flavours, a tang of raspberry, creamy, and of course booze. But itís too be expected..but considering itís 17% quite drinkable.

Pours black with a low head. Notes of coffee, prunes, licorice and candied fruit. A tad too sweet, but highly enjoyable. A sipper.

Turboninja (216) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 21, 2015
Tap@UkkoMetso, Tampere, Finland. Strong bitter aroma with dark berries, vanilla, licorice and coffee. Pitch black color with medium/small beige head. Ultra-strong, organic and bit staying taste with bit sour notes of dark berries, roasted malts, salty licorice and licorice. Hint of coffee and vanilla. Taste almost spars your breath. Soft and balanced. Wide taste spectrum with multiple clear layers. Long malty ans hoppy aftertaste.Strong body with light/medium carbonation. Overall a holy union of champagne and imperial stout.

Draught at the Ukkometso, Tampere, Finland. 2014 vintage.
Black colour with a small tan head. Super strong sweet malty aroma with plenty of nuances. Complex. Coffee, bitterness, roasted malt, cow parsley and dessert wine in an amazing aroma. Super strong flavour with coffee bitterness, hoppy bitterness, roasted malt, strong dry bitterness and strongness. Super strong! Bitter stays. Forever.

Tap @ Kaisla. Black. Winelike aroma with coffee and licorice. A long burnt after taste. Leaves the mouth dry. Slightly immature but still a great beer.
