3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown, nearly black. Thick tan head. Smokyish, malty aroma, hints of coffee and/or chocolate. Flavor is quite burned but not overly so. Slight bitterness in the finish. Quite dry and light. Very pleasant, even better than I expected.

Bottle. Color reminds me of mämmi. Nose has some coffee and roasted malty notes Flavor is liquorice and chocolate with some sweetness. Finishes quite dry and malty, abit too hard carbonation thought.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cl bottle. Very dark brown and clear. Tan creamy head but brief. Pleasant coffee and roasty nose, not strong but rich; some liquorice and nutty hints. The flavor is more sweet than expected, evn if a roasty and coffee character outcrops after that. Medium body and low carbonation but quite mouthcoating.
Another pleasant discovery in Finland.
