Almost black liquid with slightly brown head. Aroma has lost of maltiness and huge amount of piney hoppiness. It also has coffee and chocolate. It tastes like the attack of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. After that there’s still huge amount of that bitter piney taste and slight amount of citrus. Very full palate, slow beer. Siperia is one of the best beers from Finland, very nice even on style.

swoopjones (6737) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Draft at Pikkulintu, awesome stout. Perhaps the most bitter I’ve ever had. Fresh green sticky piney hops, roasted mats, touch of burnt coffee. Great flavor. Lost my original wonderfully written review on my blackberry so this is what you get. Big IBU’s delicious

MrChopin (3575) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Black, thin tan ring, light bubbled, oily tan head. Nose is roasty, bit of dank earth and light pine. Flavor is rooty, bitter malt, light chocolate. Sticky, lightly sweet in the malt-lingering finish. The beer never comes together, which is a shame as it is very well rounded.

Koelschtrinker (12158) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 10, 2011
