3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml Bottle- Very dark brown in colour and almost black. Malty aroma with liquorice and aniseed. Rich, bitter taste with plain chocolate, coffee and some aniseed. The richness is not so noticeable after the first sip and it becomes quite smooth. Good quality and it has some porter leanings. The best Ålands beer I have had so far.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Flaske 0,33l fra Alko Muonio. Dyp rødbrun. Nesten svart. Brukbart svakt farget luftig skum. Litt kaffe i aromaen. Gjennomgående kaffepreg. Svakt syrlig ettersmak. Bra men litt kjedelig. Kunne funnet noe bedre å markere mitt fødselsår med! KI=5

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Near black colored with medium sized beige head. Sweet and roasted aroma with thin licoricy-saltiness and smoke, nice aroma indeed. Medium bodied, smooth palate. Flavor is similar with roastiness dominating in start, aftertaste is sweet with licorice and caramel, aftertaste turns to salty and slightly bitter. Finely balanced dunkel.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
33cl bottle. Dark brown with a beige head. Quite unpleasant porridge, skunky aroma. Contaminated? Flavor bit better, burnt malt with some rye and coffee. Very strange. Must re-rate.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330 ml bottle. Very dark brown, almost black. Looks clear, but it is
hard to tell. Dry papery roasted aroma with a distinct yeasty
note. Soft texture with a rounded mouthfeel. Fairly low carbonation
level. Roasted flavours, but they are quite mellow. The yeast can
also be found in the flavour. Rounded flavours with a hint of
chocolate and coffee. Nice, but the yeastiness is bad.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle 33 cl. Poured dark brown, small head if any. Aroma was very sharp smell of a backroom in a barn. Flavour is burnt grain mostly. Odd one.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very dark, almost no foam. Malty aroma that doesn’t really say much. Almost like a normal lager at first, but the finish has some coffee. Despite that it’s still a bit disappointing finish, but an ok beer.
