Gedronken in de plaatselijke brouwerij in Tampere. Bier heeft een donker zwarte kleur met licht bruin schuim. Met aromahoppen en chocolade. Licht hoppig maar heb de chocolade niet echt geproefd. Goed biertje.

Draught at Plevna. Almost black color. Gently roasty aroma and flavor with nuts, toffee, chocolate as well as grassy-citrusy hops. Balance slightly more on a malt side but hop aroma and flavor is noticeable too. Medium body. Pleasant easy drinking ale with no rough edges.

lusikka (7621) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 29, 2012
Draught @ the brewpub, Tampere.
Pours a black colour with a white lacy head. Aroma is roasted malts, bread and syrupy sweetness. Flavour is rather rich with roasted malts, tar, bread, grassy hops, sweet raisins and some licorice. Mild bitter chocolate notes as well. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Very enjoyable. They should make this a regular brew.

Aroma is malty with roasted notes and hints of chocolate. Flavour is malty with roasted notes, some coffee and dark chocolate. The house aroma is present in the background. Dry and slightly ashy finish. Could be more rich but good anyway.
