Draught @ the brewpub. Pours black with a beige head. Complex IS with notes of honey, salmiak, dark chocolate, vanilla, burned toffee and coffee beans. Sweetness is kind of low. Dry finish. Body has a nice lightness to it.

Last beer of the night(and finland for that matter). Bottle. Black pour with tan head. Light roasted, chocolate, and sweet malt tones, hops create some bitterness to the stout.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2013 Really dark coloured beer with little brown head. Aroma has fruits, sweet chocolate, dark bread and roasted malts. Taste has roasted malts, chocolate, licorice and dark bread. There’s a long bitter finish and the mouthfeel is soft oily and thick. The amount of hops makes it feel almost like a black IPA. It sure is the best beer from Finland.

0.5L bottle, shared by larsga. A ring of light brown bubbles, over a jet black body. Herbs, licorice and sooty burnt malts to the nose. Medium body. Chalky mouthfeel. Dry, with licorice, coffee ground and tarry notes. Firm earthy bitterness throughout. A little rough around the edges. [09.02.13]

SperkeleForce (569) - FINLAND - MAR 15, 2013
On tap at Pikkulintu. Pours black with a small fast vanishing head. Scent is pretty nice roasted. Taste is really good refreshing and very easy drinkable. Notes of chocolate, roasted malts, general roasted, some liquorice. Great beer with good balance. The alcohol is very well hidden. Goes down pretty fast when thirsty.

Unde (371) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2013 Really dark black beer with rich dark brown head and lacing. Taste is like an IPA, with grapefruit, tropical fruits, herbs with roasted malts staying in the background. Taste starts with sweet chocolate and roasted malts, then its sweet and fruity which turns into grape and citrus fruits and bitter hops. Imperial Stout meets Black-IPA. Oily body and low carbonation, a very hoppy stout.

Ulkonäöltään mustaolut, jossa tiivis vaahto, joka kuitenkin katoaa nopeasti. Haju on paahteinen, trooppisen hedelmäinen, suklainen, lakritsinen ja hennon yrttinen. Moniulotteinen maku taas on yrttinen, hedelmäinen, havuinen, suklainen ja lakritsinen. Suutuntuma on todella valloittavan katkera ja täyteläinen. Kokonaisuutena omasta mielestä paras kotimainen, todella upealla rungolla varustettu ja monipuolinen mestariteos.
