3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
To celebrate the most important election in the last century - sa appropiate, and thumps up for the idea. Poured in a tulip-glass. Dark brown almost black with a cffé Latte-look head. The nose is strongly dominated of rasted coffee, vanilla and chocolate. Some hops and burned malts and brown sugar and a little hint of smoke. (Cant help like feeling there is some aroma-notes of an old cheese of some kind...cant find the name...and for the record - i like cheese)
The taste is bitter with notes of coffee and dark chocolate and malts. The body is creamy leaving a nce palate. The finish is long and bitter... I dont really feel that the taste backs the aroma all the way - but anyhow - its a good beer. VIVA OBAMA

Bottle. Black ofc, with a frothy off white head that dissipates rather quickly. Aroma is dominated by smoke and ashes. Some sourness from the smoke, which also comes off as kind of berry like. Some dark fruits, but they are pretty subtle. Also some alcohol. Flavour is massively peaty, pretty salty, and finishes very dry. As it warms some chocolate comes into it. Fairly extreme on the smoke, but I dig it. Medium bodied,

Tap @ Fermentoren. Pours deep brown/black-ish with a small beige head. Aroma if roasted malt. Taste is of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, a bit of licorice and a hint of smoke. Full bodied, sweet and low carbonation. Not super complex, but very tasty and overall very good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very dark brown beer with a small off-white head that actually leaves some lacings.
The smell is fairly mild with aromas of smoked and roasted malts, burnt wood, chocolate and hints of fruits.
The taste is quite sweet and balanced with flavors of mild peaty smoke, roasted malts, coffee and dark fruits. The finish is mildly bitter, dry and a short with hints of hops.
It’s quite soft on the palate with a rather full body and very mild carbonation. Goes down really easy.
All in all, a decent beer, very easy to drink.

Beautiful black beer with a lasting brown head. Fine lacing. Aroma: smoked malt, but also fruity, chocolate, coffee, liquorice, hops in the background. Taste: really well balanced. More hoppy than most stouts, but it goes well with the burnt bitterness from the malt. This connection gives it a very distinct tar-like taste and being half finnish i really enjoy the taste of tar. Really good one.
