Skakapa (52) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 19, 2012
Draught at Plevna in Tampere, Feb 2012. Dark brown, almost black with brown head. Smoke and chocolate are present in the aroma with a hint of caramel or cola. Goes down smoothly, almost too easy and would probably do well from racking. Cocoa and a light bitterness lingers.

Draught @ the brewpub
Aroma is rather hoppy with somewhat ripe fruits. Also hints of roasted malt and vanilla can be observed behind the hop wall. Flavour is hoppy with fruits and vanilla. Dry finish with roasted malt, coffee and some dark chocolate. Also Plevna house flavour is present. Becomes somewhat sticky towards the end of the glass due to the massive hop and malt amount. Rather hoppy for an Imperial stout, almost like a Black IPA. The best finnish beer I’ve had!

The flavour is medium to heavily hoppy and roasted with tones of grapefruit, chocolate, coffee, ink and tar. The mouthfeel is oily and quite round. Medium to full bodied.

Almost black liquid with slightly brown head. Aroma has lost of maltiness and huge amount of piney hoppiness. It also has coffee and chocolate. It tastes like the attack of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. After that there’s still huge amount of that bitter piney taste and slight amount of citrus. Very full palate, slow beer. Siperia is one of the best beers from Finland, very nice even on style.

swoopjones (5329) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Draft at Pikkulintu, awesome stout. Perhaps the most bitter I’ve ever had. Fresh green sticky piney hops, roasted mats, touch of burnt coffee. Great flavor. Lost my original wonderfully written review on my blackberry so this is what you get. Big IBU’s delicious
