On tap in Pikkulintu. Poured dark and think with a nice heavy head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate with roast malt. Flavour similar, but with a strong pure alcohol kick which kind of spoiled it for me. Got the feeling this would be a good candidate for barrel aging.

daje (2556) - NORWAY - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle shared by esp0r. Pitch black with a creamy brown head. Thick body. Licorice and coffee aroma, with roast and pine. Taste of chocolate, licorice, nuts, dark fruits. Good carbonation. Nice bittering and a good lasting dry finish.

Pitch black with white foam. Chocolate and liquirice, roasty. Very very bitter aftertaste that lasts a lifetime. Excellent imperial stout, have chance to drink this all too rarely.

Draught at beer festival. Black color, brown head. Strong, roasty taste with chocolate, coffee, liqourice and smoke. Roasty, woody finish. Probably the best Finnish stout, anyway, excellent imperial stout.

BitchPls (568) - FINLAND - JUL 26, 2012
A bit IPA like aroma with slight roastiness of coffee. Pitch black and thin mocha head. Full body. Very thick. Bitterness isn’t over powering but just right. Very balanced flavors of bitterness and roasted coffee and sweetness. An excellent beer!

liinis (1580) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 17, 2012
Very bitter pitch black, brown head that leaves lace. Quite full mouthfeel, oily after. Bitter fresh eukalyptus afrer taste. A lot of fresh delicious hops especially in the aroma and much of it in the taste too.

Furseth (1962) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2012
Bottle: Thanx to Mr.Ingo! Black colour, brown head. Aroma is dominated of Portviny; Rasins,coffee,dark choclate, fruits, and caramelly. Flavor was sweet creamy mouthfeeling, caramelly, vanilla, coffee, dark choclate and lots of raisins. Nice complexity of this IMP Stout. Medium to full body and a liong dry fruity finish. Well done

Draught @ Plevna. Pours beautiful opaque with a decent espresso head that stays. Aroma is really hoppy with juniper, dark fruits, vanilla and mild roasty malt. Quite bitter taste is really tarry with also some notes of licorice, dark fruits and roasted malt. Full bodied, smooth mouthfeel and low carbonation. Long bitter finish. A great imperial stout and exceptionally bitter even for its type.

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.

laiti (5753) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 4, 2012
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!
