gramity (1518) - Edmonton, Alberta, - NOV 2, 2012
Poured into a pint glass from a bomber. Pours almost like a brown ale, only with fizzy, beige head. Has a surprising sweet scent, with a similar tart/sweet taste. Finishes very nutty. Not my style, but fairly well put together with interesting/subtle tastes.

laiti (6261) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2015
65 cl bottle (5%) @ lusikka, BBE 12/2014
Aroma is rather odd, feels like some spicy soup. Some soy sauce, spices and toffee typical to English ales. Also hints of sweet licorice. Flavour has harsh malt, toffee, hay, licorice and weird spices. Finishes with some grapefruit-like hops. Not my thing.

650 ml bottle. Pours a black colour with a small off-white head. Aroma of toasted malts, dark chocolate and yeastiness. Flavour of harsh grainy malts, earthiness, mild saltiness, nuttiness and bread. Light bodied and thin mouthfeel. Not my thing.

tiong (4148) - Espoo, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2015
650ml bottle

Pours dark brown with a smooth head. Aroma of malts, spices, toffee, syrup, hints of roastiness and earthy notes. Taste is smooth, spicy and a bit weird with hints of earthy notes, tea, toffee, syrup and roastiness. Finish is roasty, a bit weird and spicy with hints of earthiness and syrup. A bit strange.

olio (6803) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2015
65 cl bottle (5.0% abv). Importer BBE 12/2014.
Pours dark brown color with a large off-white head. Aroma doesn’t feel very fresh, some cardboard, hay, some weird herbal notes, mild hops and fruits. Sweet cola on the flavor, lemon, some malts and grass, gooseberries on the background. Quite weird. Not really my thing.

monk191 (1181) - California, USA - OCT 23, 2014
A nice black ale. Pours a deep black with a thick tan head. Smells of rice pudding and French toast with a bit of hops. Taste is quite crisp, with more rice cakes, chocolate malts and a slightly hoppy finish with a bit of a flour-like fizziness on your tongue.
