3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Ebano intensa con poca schiuma. Aroma di malti tostati che ricordano molto il caffè. Vi è un influenza luppolata sul finire. Al palato corposa, densa, con un attacco dolce di avena e nella parte centrale della bocca si sente il caratteristico amaro del caffè. Alla fine emerge una nota luppolata. Buona!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle. Pours a dark brown/black colour with substantial beige creamy head, very nice. Chocolate, coffee, roasted malts and hints of red grape on the nose, pretty complex. Taste is more dominated by roasted malts with little hints of dark chocolate. I don’t see any significant coffee presence, but a non depreciable amount of hops instead. No alcohol at all, quite low for a beer like this I must say. Medium/creamy mouthfeel, good carbonation. Very enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black color with reddish glitters, almost like a coke, with a fleeting, solid beige head. Roasted aromas to black dried coffee, hints of cocoa and black fruits. Creamy mouthfeel to coffee, liquorice and sugar. However, it’s quite well balanced with hops, with a bittersweet finish very well structured. Surprisingly good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33 l bottle at Vihreä Haltiatar, Jyväskylä. Almost black dark reddish brown color. Sweetish roasty aroma with coffee, leather and some fruity hops. Taste of coffee with drying hoppy and bitter finish. Hoppiness is generic fruity with no particular aromatics. Also some burt sugar, dark fruits and hint of plastic in the flavor. Firm taste but not particularly complex, hoppiness and roastedness seem to be fighting against each other.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Pours dark brown, almost black in color with creamy beige
head. Mocha, licorice, creamy espresso, burnt malts and chocolate in
aroma. Lovely so far. Roasted malts, some burnt wood, salty
licorice. Seems more diverse than it actually is. Light. Nonetheless
the licorice is nice, as it’s present in different forms in the
finish. A bit better body and this would have been a good one.

A dark brown/black colored beer, with a thick dark beige head. The aroma of some roasted malt, with dark fruits and hops. The taste is dry roasted malt, with fruits and spices. The aftertaste is some sweet and dry bitter.
