3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml (K Kamppi, Helsinki)
Pretty darl, large frothy beige head, fairly persistent. Pleasanty roasty bready aroma, quite toasty. Medium palate, refreshing, but not watery, carbonation there but not aggressive. Lovely level of burntness to the toastiness in the taste, and a nice dry leafy old hop bitterness too. Very full of character, but refreshing to chug too. Finish does get a bit burnt dry and metallic bitter later, but it doesn’t become offensive.

courtesy of Allen - almost black in colour and with a persistent beige foam; very toasted nose of ashes and black chocolate; some fruity hoppy tones below; medium-bodied and pretty tasty; subtle carbonation and decently bitter, more collaboration between fruity hops and toasted chocolatey malts in a long finish; lingering hints of ashes - really good
