Black with minimal to no head. No carbonation sign when I open the bottle. Aroma is alcohol, grapes, vanilla, malt. Full body with low carbonation. In mouth is very chocolate, caramel, candy like, little fruits, vanilla. Finish is a long and smooth sweet and warming taste of chocolate and alcohol. OMG !

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

Turboninja (208) - 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.

PunkAGM2015 rate catchup from notes. 6/6/15. OMFG. There is a sequence of photos of my face as I tasted this for the first time. F**ked up. Awesome. It has everything and keeps on giving. Sweet and bitter, sharp and smooth, smoky and clean, spicy and savoury. What an experience.

Well the name fits, the beer is black with a brown caramel head. Smell: Coffee, burned sugar, perhaps molasses. leather, alcohol. Taste, whoa. Nice carbonation, oily and perhaps a bit creamy mouthfeel. First it tastes sweet followed by a big heap of bitterness. After a few sips the bitterness appears a bit less and the sweet part lingers a bit more. Dark fruits, coffee, molasses, bitter chocolate, burnt malts. more chocolate. The aftertaste is long and bittersweet with some alcohol taste. Lovely and amazingly complex beer.
