Punkero (294) - FINLAND - JAN 30, 2016
Dark as a black hole. Stingy roasted taste. A hint of hops. Thick oily body, but definitely a stout. Not too sweet. Awesome like Siperia.

Kauge (1589) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 27, 2016
Bottle as a gift from Helsinki. BB 11.2017. Pours dark brown, appearing black in the glass, with an inconsistent tan head leaving some scattered lace. The aroma is so nice... Very roasty, at points even ashy, sweet, with a mountain of berry and pine needle bitter hops, and a bit of a musky cat peey note there as well. As it’s warmed, a whiff of mellow booziness appears at times. Tastes more bitter than sweet, which I like. The bitter and roast make for a very soothing effect, but underlaying is a moderate vanilla sweetness. The mouthfeel is soft and smooth, and gets a bit sticky as it warms. Carbonation very thin and only just noticeable. Alcohol hidden. An excellent, stimulating sipper.

SlovakSniper (5084) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2016
0,33 cl from Janne. Thx man! Tunique presque noire et grande tête brune ébouriffée. Ses parfums maltés riches (chocolat, caramel, café, rôti, fruits) et de houblons généreux (citriques, forestiers, résineux) me plaisent beaucoup. Le goût chocolaté et fruité montre également de la réglisse, de la vanille, des aiguilles de pin et de la résine. Son corps ample et peu motivé par les bulles a une texture crémeuse. La finale amère de houblons et de malts rôtis est extrêmement agréable.

Erbenaut (11) - VANTAA, FINLAND - DEC 30, 2015
Long time favourite from Plevna, Pikkulintu and Kaisla, as well as bottled xmas edition from Alko. Now tasted at Bruuveri Kamppi from tap. Strong aroma starts with roasty, resinous and citrus notes. Chocolate and coffee emerge. Appearance is very black but clear, tan foam pours thick with small durable bubbles and distinct lacing. Taste has medium sweetness, and is very bitter. Palate is full bodied, creamy, average carbonation, bitter, long finish. Siperia will teach. Always.

Armadill0 (333) - FINLAND - DEC 25, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown / black, with a big thick brown head. Aroma has hop, cocoa, coffee and citrus. Taste has malt, coffee. Very smooth mouthfeel with a bitter acidic middle and aftertaste. Almost like tonic water. Lots of character.

Desverger (8293) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2015
Bottle - thanks to Cloin! - pours black with a medium dissipating tan head. Aroma and taste is roasted malty, with a strong hoppy backing, nice notes of chocolate and coffee, pretty smooth mouthfeel with a good helping of vanilla sweetness flowing through, a roasty and hoppy bitter finish. Good stuff.

Vogelweide (23) - FINLAND - DEC 9, 2015
One of the best beers in Finland, no doubt. Hoppy bitterness meeting nice fruitiness and malts. Good balance, and a long after taste. A complex brew.

Lambister (441) - FINLAND - DEC 5, 2015
33cl bottle from our lovely monopoly. Pours close to pitch black with a fully diminished chocolate brown head. Nose has hops and roasted malts. Smooth bitter hoppy flavour to a roasted liqourice chocolate malty base. Lenghty, crisp and fresh ending.

Luumu (25) - , FINLAND - NOV 24, 2015
Tuoksu tumma, makea, täyteläinen. Vaahto katoava, mokka. Maku pehmyt, paahteinen, kevyen humalainen, paahteinen. Suutuntuma mielyttävä, sopivan paksu runko.
