4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2013 A pitch black beer with a medium, dense and light brown head. The nose is roasted with coffee, at the same time also strongly citrusfuity and fresh, liquirice, some sweetness, hint of pine needles and strawberries. Taste is powerfull, strongly roasted and grapefruity, strong bitterness, some black coffee. The end is very long and strong, sour and grapefruity bitterness stays in the mouth. Medium+ bodied, low carbonation, quite smooth to drink. The powerfull beer with the strong and grapefruity hoppyness, very enjoyable.

Kahvinen, kaakaoinen ja paahteinen tuoksu. Kylmänä myös hieman anista, joka on selvemmin läsnä maussa. Salmiakkisuutta myös.

Tap@pikkis. Black. Dark berries, ashes and green hops on nose. Full body, with some yeast, greenery and roasty malts. Milkyness, licorice. Ashy cigarette finish. Don’t know what’s the fuss about, this feels rather mediocre.

4.50 euro, draft half-pint at Olutravintola Pikkulintu. Fantastic pitch black pour with a tan head. Licorice, coffee & malts in the aroma. This is quite boozy for 8%, I get licorice, bitter coffee & pine. This must be heavily hopped. Pretty good but I’d probably age it to mellow it out a bit. As you drink it, it grows on you & starts to reveal hidden layers of dark malty sweetness of chocolate & a touch of coffee beans. Once you get past the bitterness it’s pretty damn good.
