Sample @ CBC’13.
Pours deep dark red, almost black color with a small head. Aroma is mostly cocoa, some mild toasted malts and chocolate. Flavor of tar, syrup, cocoa, caramel malts, some soy, sweet malts and molasses. Very nice on the nose but the flavor is way too sweet and sugary.

lusikka (6049) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 4, 2013
Draught @ CBC2013. Pours a pitch black colour with a beige head. Aroma is very rich with mudcake, roasted malts and bread. Flavour is very rich as well with mudcake, raisins, roasted malts, wood and some soy sauce. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel and a warming, roasty, rich finish. Soy sauce notes ruin a bit, but otherwise a great rich beer.

tiong (3682) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAY 4, 2013
Draught @ CBC 2013

Pours pitch black with a smooth head. Aroma of sweet syrupy notes, coffee, roasty malts, cocoa, vanilla and ash. Taste is sweet and sticky with loads of grainy roasty malts, cocoa, ash and vanilla. Finish is sweet and roasty with some syrupy notes and hints of cocoa, sugary vanilla and coffee. Quite massive and over the top IS. Too much of everything, not very balanced.

Plovmand (6320) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2013
Tap. Pours jet black with a creamy dense brown head. The aroma is chocolate, oranges, hard roasted malt and sweet fruit. The flavor is sweet roasted, oranges, candy, sweet chocolate and dark berries. Loads of sweetness in this. Complex as hell.
