3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

I rate beers I think significantly better than average, simple as that. I am not into showing off through prolix bloviating. My honest appraisals will offset those who intentionally downgrade excellent beers attempting to appear a snob. . :)

From notes: Bottle from Alko last year. Nice malty and a bit hoppy aroma. Full body. Long, bitter taste, some roasted malts. Balanced and somewhat complex overall. Great stuff.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark as a black hole. Stingy roasted taste. A hint of hops. Thick oily body, but definitely a stout. Not too sweet. Awesome like Siperia.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle as a gift from Helsinki. BB 11.2017. Pours dark brown, appearing black in the glass, with an inconsistent tan head leaving some scattered lace. The aroma is so nice... Very roasty, at points even ashy, sweet, with a mountain of berry and pine needle bitter hops, and a bit of a musky cat peey note there as well. As it’s warmed, a whiff of mellow booziness appears at times. Tastes more bitter than sweet, which I like. The bitter and roast make for a very soothing effect, but underlaying is a moderate vanilla sweetness. The mouthfeel is soft and smooth, and gets a bit sticky as it warms. Carbonation very thin and only just noticeable. Alcohol hidden. An excellent, stimulating sipper.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0,33 cl from Janne. Thx man! Tunique presque noire et grande tête brune ébouriffée. Ses parfums maltés riches (chocolat, caramel, café, rôti, fruits) et de houblons généreux (citriques, forestiers, résineux) me plaisent beaucoup. Le goût chocolaté et fruité montre également de la réglisse, de la vanille, des aiguilles de pin et de la résine. Son corps ample et peu motivé par les bulles a une texture crémeuse. La finale amère de houblons et de malts rôtis est extrêmement agréable.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Long time favourite from Plevna, Pikkulintu and Kaisla, as well as bottled xmas edition from Alko. Now tasted at Bruuveri Kamppi from tap. Strong aroma starts with roasty, resinous and citrus notes. Chocolate and coffee emerge. Appearance is very black but clear, tan foam pours thick with small durable bubbles and distinct lacing. Taste has medium sweetness, and is very bitter. Palate is full bodied, creamy, average carbonation, bitter, long finish. Siperia will teach. Always.

Bottle. Dark brown / black, with a big thick brown head. Aroma has hop, cocoa, coffee and citrus.
