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.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2013 The pitch black body is covered by a thin layer of brown foam. Nose starts off with piney and fruity notes and upon warming up becomes abundant with notes of coffee, chokolate, malts and bisquits. Taste is bold, starting with a thick malty sweetness followed by a bitter long-lasting finish. The aftertaste stays on the palate for a long time. Carbonation feels quite mild but there is a lot of bubbles going around. The taste is a bit coarse and would probably become nicer with a bit of aging.

mikkos (200) - FINLAND - JUL 22, 2013
Pitch black with a long lasting, creamy head. Leaves a nice lacing. Aromas of chocolate, fruity hops, roasted malts, liquorice, hint of alcohol. Similar taste, liquorice, leather, roasted malts. Quite complex but oh so good. Medium full mouthfeel, balanced carbonation. Bitterness kicks in quite heavily afterwards. This is really good stuff :)
