4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2013 Bottle at Black Door, Helsinki. Pours black with a thick medium sized head that leaves a lot of lacing. Very malty aroma with notes of chocolate, smoke and coffee, also some roasty and nutty notes. Taste is dryish, very roasty and rich. It is both malty and towards the finish also hoppy. Flavours of coffee, dark chocolate, some resin and pine. Palate is full and sticky. Very nice, drinkable Imperial Stout - intense but not as robust as some.

Pours clear dark brown with strong tan head. Pine, chocolate, cocoa, burnt malt, hay, very hoppy nose. Burnt malt, pine, dark chocolate. A very light palate for an imperial stout. Not particularly Russian IMO but I like it nonetheless.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pleasant flavors of cocoa and dark roasted malts, but definitely on the thin side for the style. Medium bodied with a bit of hop bitterness in the finish. Well made, just a little weak.

0.5 l draught @ William K Kurvi, Helsinki. This has Scotland all over i.e. taste of malt whisky. I hope I’m writing the review in the right slot. Dark malts, smoke, alcohol. Great after a nice meal.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours clear deep ruby-brown with a huge frothy tan head. Original rich aroma of chocolate, pine, resin, northern rainforest, spice, dried fruit and prunes, chestnuts, coffee, toffee and forest again. And again. And it never ends :) Fairly light body for an imperial stout which makes it sooo dangerous. Can’t... stop... drinking it.... Baltic Stout is what it should be called, and I’d be even prouder to live in the Baltics then :)

medium taste - a little bit roasted coffee, fresh coffee with sugar, burnt fruit wood, some dark chocolate, flowers and honey. not an imperial, but a good common stout!

Bottle - dense dark brown, with thick foamy tan head. Strong coffee, chocolate aroma. Good mouthfeel. Strong tasting, maybe a bit over powering for my taste.
