ladnewton (1401) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2009
Draught at Plevna, Tampere, Finland on 9th August 2008. Black as printing ink and sports a handsome pale brown head. One of the finest stouts I have drunk in recent years. Full-bodied, very strong hoppiness for a stout as well as delectable roasted malt and smokiness. Very bitter chocolate notes too. Totally exquisite and recommended.

TEJA (1263) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2009
Draught at Plevna. Thich lasting brown foam. Almost totaly dark. Grapefruit aroma and litle roasted m,alts. When litle bit warmer green aples also present. Very hop dominated taste and big bitternes almost balanced by a big body and some residual sweetness and tar.

Finwe (412) - Grankulla, FINLAND - MAY 18, 2009
Draught, 40 cl glass at Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Quite black with a tan head. An aroma of hints to hops, coffee, some chocolate and roasted malt. Hoppy bitterness in the taste is soon overwhelmed by sweet malts, chocolate and roastiness.

TimE (3110) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 29, 2009
Pitch black color, off white head. Sweet honey, blood oranges, dark chocolate, liquorice all make an appearance, in this somewhat unusual brew. Sweet malty backbone and a long bitter finish.

SaintMatty (5113) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2009
Draught (St Urho’s, Helsinki) - Very dark brown, almost black with a tan head. Slightly perfumed and hoppy aroma with soap, hops, chocolate and coffee. Hoppy and roasted taste which is slightly soapy. Not bad but perhaps a bit too hoppy for this style. Having said that, most ’imperial stouts’ seem to be like this these days.

Anker (723) - Hillerød, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2009
On tap at Olutravintola Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Pours pitch black, with a creamy, small, long lasting and light brown head. Aroma is hops, chocolate, coffee and sweet roasted malt. Flavor is bitter at first, then it gets pleasantly sweet, with a taste of sweet malt, caramel and chocolate, ending up in a nice bitter and roasted malty aftertaste. Why do I have to go to Finland, to by this one??

beeR (60) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 31, 2009
Draught at Pikkulintu (Helsinki). Really black, nutty brown, dense and long lasting head. Sweet chocolate, coffee and liqorice, quite intense aroma. I feel a pleasant dry hopping component but not sure it’s the case. Pronunced sweetness with toasty notes in the flavor, with a hidden alcohol which comes at the end warming the mouth. Rich and full body.
