3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black and clear with a large rocky brown head. Light caramel aroma, with a light smoke and mocha too. Bitter mouthful, fairly dry and maybe a little thin. Flavours of dry cocoa, and light bitter roast character. Dry roasty finish, a great stout, would be great if they knocked the abv back to 3.5 and put it into supermarkets... but I guess thats just asking too much.

Bottled, Svenska Dagar, Pikkulintu, Finland. Very distinctive liqurice and some smoke in the aroma. Deep, dark brown colour, small light brown head. A bit young taste, quite harsh. Maybe we got a bad batch/bottle. Interesting birch in the finish, almost like being in a sauna!

Bottled at Haket, Gothenburg. Jet black with a nice tan, almost brown, head. Chocolate, mocha, coffee and roasted malt in the aroma.
