2010 500ml bottle from Tiong. Black with a very thin brown head that almost disappears. Anise, roasted malts, bittersweet, bit of prune. Mild carbonation, full body, bitter at first, then some alcohol and anise burn, nice long burnt ending. Very happy to gotten to try this.

Draught at Pikkulintu, 0.4l. Color black, some glimpses of red. Aroma bourbon and vanilla. Flavor with chocolate and vanilla, too much alcohol. In my opinion, worse than casual Plevna Siperia.

Wow, so boozy. It's like a smack in the face. Aroma is overpowering and the taste is right there. This is a bit too much, alcohol overpowers anything else there. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500 ml bottle. Pitch black colour, thin brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, liquorice, coffee, chocolate, fruits and hops. The flavour is roasted malty, sweetish with liquorice, oak, chocolate etc. The finish is drier, hoppy, with plenty of hoppy bitterness. One of the best Finnish beers I’ve tasted.

Bottle shared with Daje & Edvard at the Nyco_Fox Buzz sessions
Pours jet black with a thick brown head. Smells of roasted malts, soy sauce, and coffee. Taste is quite malty, good sweetness and coffee and some ashtray. Quite dry and oily feel. Nice and power bitter finish. Very nice finnish imperial stout

Rune (9661) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 30, 2012
500ml bottle bought at Alko Arkadia in Helsinki almost a year ago. Deep, motor oily pour revealing a very dark body colour with a rusty tint. Brownish head, some of it remaining and leaving fragile lacing behind. Smells good of velvet dark malts and dark fruity hops. Vanilla oak in flavour successfully joined by earthy, dark malts and dusty hops inserted by degrees of anise. Solid ending of dark, bitter hops. Warming and excellent as a sipper on a dark Saturday eve. Greetings to Hanniku who I had the pleasure of meeting last August in London (Tromsø, 28.01.2012).

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - NOV 30, 2011
At Ryan & Felicias, shared by 50BelAir. Is black, scant head. Smells burnt and hot, with some dark fruit, much like an imperial foreign stout. The flavors are nice and lingering long with espresso, sour fruit, and some unfortunate acrid tones, like bitter fruit seeds and burnt wood. Intense and unbalanced, wasn’t vibing but hard to know what a longer visit would have yielded.

Bottle… This beer rocks!... Murky dark brown ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. The bouquet is very deeply roasted, bourbony and quite oaken with nuances of blackstrap molasses, espresso, dark berries and spiced rum. Full-bodied and creamy with soft carbonation. The flavor is also deeply roasted and oaken with notes of espresso, burnt cocoa and dark berries. Scorched, bitter finish. Thanks to the always-generous 50belair for sharing this bottle!

Bottle. Dark brown/black pour with a kaki head. All kinds of chocolate in the nose. Complex and tasty with expresso, dark fruit, chocolate, vanilla, oak, muted booze and deep roasted malt flavors. Impressive....

(Enjoyed in the only possible company, with Hanniku himself) As black as can be, little dark brown head. Strong roastiness with oaky-vanilla note dominating, some vinous-raisinny tone here as well with licorice. Medium to full bodied. Flavor is also strongly vanilla with roastiness, strong hops with bitter grass here too which lasts in dry aftertaste, thin alcohol here as well. Excellent one.
