3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle at home - pours deep brown with an eggshell white head. In the aroma lots of freshly roasted coffee beans (no real mocha flavours though), a good dose of pine honey and some caramel. Light body, light sweetness and medium roastiness, toasted bread and caramel malts in the flavour... A good everyday porter...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours pitch black with a creamy, stable head. Aroma, nothing surprising - mainly coffee with hints of chocolate and fruity hoppy. Taste of roasted malts, coffee. Medium body and carbonation. Medium bitter aftertaste, also slightly acidic. Good beer, yet nothing spectacular.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a black body, with an average light brown head that diminishes slowly, leaving a fair lace. Aroma of coffee mostly, maybe some mocha notes. Light sweet, very light taste, can get a little bit of mocha, but something is weird here, not bery balanced. Medium bodied, watery texture, nice carbonation level. Could be better.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
After a few, lets be honest, dreadful Finnish beers in Helsinki, I had this beer to reel me back in. A good roast coffee with some caramels, there’s a chocolate flavor here, but on the bitter side, not sweet, which really works wonders on the beer. This is a beer for dark winter nights in candle light. Sublime!
