UPDATED: FEB 10, 2014 275ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki) (7:4:7:4:13=3.5)
nutty cakey aroma. slick butter in the mouth. moussy carbonation. odd spicy taste,chilli pepper burn I guess. Strange vanilla sweetness. raisins, vodka, not as raw a previous ones, but could still do with some aging. finish is dry bitterness, ans sweet burntness. need to cellar a bottle I guess. OK to Nice, but not yet good.
Rerate: 275ml bottle (Nordic, Tampere) BB2012-08 drunk 2014-01 (7+:4:7:4:16=3.8+)
Super rich burnt roast aroma, super coffee aspects too. In the mouth it’s a lovely rich roast, but isn’t ashy. A monster of a dark porter, but so tasty that its drinkability is very high - sure you sip rather than glug, but you sip often. Carbonation remarkably high for a 16% IS, that’s probably what keeps it from being heavy or too cloying. Certainly has begun to round out nicely compared with the previous one (which Anna didn’t have). It’s the end of the day, I’ve got a lovely beer in my hand, I don’t want to write any more, sorry.

8.5 oz bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs; thanks DuffMan). Looks good; a mostly opaque very dark cola with beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes good too; dark malt, dark chocolate, coffee, and roast. Some raisin and plum on the tongue as well. Mouthfeel is full-bodied, somewhat bitter, and pleasantly boozy. Intense, but good.
