Beer #5 of 13 in blind tasting.
I don’t think I even knew this beer existed before the tasting. Up to this point, this poured the thickest. This was the strongest hopped beer (for the whole tasting), very piney. I felt the hops turned the beer minerally and metallic.
In the aggregate, this fell right at average.

Aroma is a complex mix of dark malts, coffee, chocolate and fruit. The flavor is coffee, dark malts, dark fruit, berries/fruit, dark chocolate and a bitter/acidic finish.

Andy_ (887) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2015
330 ml bottle@Konttori
Black oily beer with only a little brown head. Aroma has coffee beans, cocoa nibs, liqueur, brown sugar, licorice and alcohol. Flavor has brown sugar, wood, coffee, coffee beans, cocoa nibs, roasted malts, liqueur and licorice. Palate is full and soft with bitterness. Finish has quite strong and long bitterness with some alcohol. Aftertaste is sweet, licoricy, roasted and salty with some alcohol. Too much of the coffee bean / cocoa nibs taste for me, does not come out enjoyable, but quite harsh.
