3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl bottle. Pours black with beige, creamy head. Malty and toasted aroma has dark fruitiness and some salty licorice. Smoke and coffee in the finish. Malty taste is strong and dark, sweet and salty at the same time. Finishes slightly bitter and chalky. Medium bodied, soft carbonated and quite thick palate. It might have had a handful too much colour malts. Chaliness is not that great thing. High quality beer anyway.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle from an Alko store in Finland, courtesy of Finn Hansen. Described as an unfiltered, hand made slow beer. Bubbly and dense, fawn coloured head. Nice deep, deep, rosewood body. Smell of cocoa and chocolate malts. Sweet dark malts in flavour complemented by herbal dryness and noticeable, balancing bitterness to the finish. A bit foamy in the mouth. Highly drinkable (at home, Tromsř 22.09.2009).
