3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Pikkulintu, Helsinki.
The froth is like a chocolate milkshake, thick and lasting. Whiskey smoke aroma. Black color. The taste is lighty smokey with caramell that blends fine the alcohol. Lasting malt taste and some bitterness and low carbonation and mouthfeel. No chocolate but much enoyable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught@Pikkulintu, rated 2011-11-07) Almost black with a very small, beige head. Smoky-peaty aroma with malt sweetness and licorice. Licoricey-smoky flavor with peat and pleasantly roasted malt. Medium body, feels fuller than the ABV suggests despite the high CO2. A balanced, peaty porter.
