11.1%. Tuoksu okei. Jeppis jee okei jepulis jees. Perus lagein tuoksu, ei tästä parempaakaan voi arvioida. Vahva sitruunainen suutuntuma, arviot heittelee 1-5 /5 mutta tässä tilanteessa 3/5. Valitettavasti ei chili maistu juuriikaan.

rosenbergh (7248) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2014
330 ml bottle. BB 31/12/2014. Courtesy of Jultsu. Enjoyed at the ISKTR 2014. Dark reddish brown colour with a tiny frothy tan head. Malt, sweetness and mild vegetables in the aroma. The flavour is malt, mild vegetables and mild hops. The chilies mentioned on the label were probably forgotten somewhere... No chili notes... Unfortunately!!!! -- via Beer Buddy for iPhone

olio (6409) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2014
33 cl bottle @ ISKTR 2014.
Pours black color with a small head. Malty, slightly fruity, not that sweet. Cocoa, orange and malts on the flavor, mild coffee too. A bit weird but works on some level.

Bottle. Aged a bit, bb 31.12.2014. Aroma: Mainly cherry, plum, some alcohol, bit of coffee. Taste: Very low sweet start, low sourness from malt, medium bitterness. Flavor of plum with alcohol, chocolate. Hot spicy aftertaste. Low carbonation, full body, oily texture. Nice beer!

goleiro (169) - Lublin, POLAND - OCT 25, 2014
Mocarz o potencjale którego nie czuć. Papryczki schowane, goryczka nie kopiąca po gębie, widocznie leżakowanie mu nie przysłużyło się.

Swaroga (1429) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 18, 2014
Gęste o kolorze ciemno-brāzowym. Piwo jest mało gorzkie o mocnych nutach czekolady. Po ogrzaniu czuć piekācy alkohol. Ogólnie fajny RIS ale jeszcze mało bogaty i piekācy alkohol jest podobny do brudnego bimbru.

pkomar (130) - Poznan, POLAND - OCT 12, 2014
Lots of chocolate, dried fruits, a bit of vanilla and a tiny bit of liquor sweets. Good, complex aroma. Pours black with decent head, that leaves a nice lacing, but quickly disappears. Taste is sweet, low bitterness. There is also some spiciness thanks to chilli added to the beer - works well in my opinion. It’s not overwhelming and adds a bit of depth to the beer. Medium carbonation, thick texture, medium-full body. Overall a great beer - I gave it a few months before drinking it and I recommend it.

Tranquillity (1422) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2014
Nice! The aroma is full and has slight notes of honey. The colour should be slightly darker, this one is almost mahogany. The taste isn’t as full either as the aroma promises. Nice finish though.

With strong malty aroma of dark chocolate and dark brown color and bubbly head, spicy roasted palate

Marduk (2886) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 9, 2014
330ml bottle, trade with Gregory. Pitch black color. Small size, brown bubbly head, stays as a ring. Black pepper, chilly, sweetish, fruity hops in aroma. Heavy roast, sweet, smoke, woody, black pepper in taste. Dry, almost ashy mothfeel. Some spicyness in aftertaste. Hard to drink, but every sip is pure joy.
