Bottle. Pours pitch black with a brown head. The aroma contains notes of roasted malts, chocolate, liquorice, coffee and dark fruits. Moderate to heavy sweetness, light bitterness and a slightly bitter finish. Full-bodied, creamy and very soft carbonation. The best imperial stout currently made in Finland.

Mukavan syvän tumma väri, sopivan paahteinen ja runsas vaahto. Maku hyvin voimakas, mutta turhan viipyilevä.

DIRKDENNEMANN (1) - Bad Bentheim (Gildehaus), GERMANY - JAN 31, 2015 does not count
Has heavy fruit smell, even before drinking. Has taste of chocolade and is a very drinkable beer, even for an imperial stout.Still balance of hops and malt is very good.

Beer5000 (5938) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 27, 2014
On tap @ Panimoravintola Bruuveri, Helsinki. Dark brown, almost black body with a small tan head. Nice aroma of roasted, dark malt, coffee and dry fruit, slightly vinous. Flavor has dark, nice roasted sweet malt, coffee, dark chocolate, dry fruit and fine bitterness. Fine balanced body with a solid aftertaste. Smooth and nice, so balanced that it feels less alcoholic and bitter than described.
