Bottle. Thanks Jon. Very nice. Aroma is little smoky, dark and roasty. Taste is very nice, roast, caramel, chocolate, little sweetness. Little bit of sourness, is that the blackberries?

Poured into a teku showing pitch black center with thin rims of coffee translucency and no head. The nose shows very light, barely perceivable notes of blackberry, The palate is moderately carbonated and medium bodied. Hints of blackberry with slight residual dark fruit sweetness. Mid-palate shows light coffee notes and the finish shows heavy roasted malts. Linger shows a lot of heavy roasted malts once again.

Aroma has bready malt, some porto and roastiness. Flavour has soy sauce, salty licorice, some mild porto tones and alcohol. Could not locate the berries here but the licorice notes are nice.

Jultsu (745) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2015
Vintage 2012, pullon jämät. Lähes vaahdoton, mustanruskea väri. Tummuutta, luumua, huumaavaa intensiivisyyttä tuoksussa. Leipää, tummuutta, semivetisyyttä, luumua suutuntumassa, joka muuntautuu todella pehmeän makeaksi jälkiruoaksi. Ei moniulotteisin, mutta nautittava tuotos.

lusikka (7693) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2015
750 ml bottle. 2012 vintage. Thanks me. Pours a pitch black colour with a small beige head. Aroma of very rich deep blackberry notes, roastiness, licorice and dark chocolate. Very rich flavour of roastiness, blackberries, salty licorice, dark chocolate, a bit of sweetness, red berry tartness and wood. Full bodied. Extremely complex and tasty. Brilliant. Berry overload only for true brotherboys.

olio (9283) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2015
75 cl bottle @ ISKTR V.
Pours black color with a large beige head, gusher alert. Quite hoppy aroma, dark roasted malts, some cocoa and fruity notes. Sweet coffee notes on the flavor, tobacco, tar and dark berries. Not very pleasant, too much berries, I like the faint coffee notes though.
