Turboninja (548) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 22, 2013
Semi-strong aroma with a bit roasted flavors of licorice, resin and alcohol. Very dark brown color with brown semi-thick head. The taste has almost everything: strong organic, malty, a bit roasted coffee flavor with wide taste spectrum. But, there is almost none sweetness as the aroma suggests. No licorice, tar etc.. Perhaps a glimpse of chocolate. Palate is too light for this style. Medium carbonation is ok.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2015 Kyllä on kova tämä nykyään. Ei ole ihme että on Suomen kärki. Tasapainoinen. Olisiko jopa parantunut tekoprosessi?

TET (2681) - Kaarina, FINLAND - NOV 9, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2013 A pitch black beer with a medium, dense and light brown head. The nose is roasted with coffee, at the same time also strongly citrusfuity and fresh, liquirice, some sweetness, hint of pine needles and strawberries. Taste is powerfull, strongly roasted and grapefruity, strong bitterness, some black coffee. The end is very long and strong, sour and grapefruity bitterness stays in the mouth. Medium+ bodied, low carbonation, quite smooth to drink. The powerfull beer with the strong and grapefruity hoppyness, very enjoyable.
