2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a deep brown almost black color with aroma of chocolate. Taste is mildly hoppy with coco notes and dark hop aftertaste. Overall a decent beer for the style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black with almost completely opaque, not much head, but off white and around the edges of the glass. Nose has small hint of licorice, strong dark fruit, odd aroma, something that I haven’t smelt often. Light body, very sweet, light malt spread across the palate. Odd, but good beer.

12 Oz. Bottle. Poured a dark brown with a little tan head. Aroma of caramel, toffee and malts. Very tasty, sweet malts, caramel and a touch of smoke; a bit dry at the end. Overall a nice beer that is very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very dark brown/black with a slight light brown head. Scent has sweet caramel malts and sugars. Taste has a good mixture of sweet caramel malts and robust malts. Flavor is bold and has a decent texture but the finish is a little dry with a little bit of a chalky after taste. A rather interesting version of a schwarzbier.

A quite tasty beer, it has a unique flavor. (One friend said it tasted like cola). Quite refreshing and easy to drink for a dark beer, it has very little carbonation which allows for some quick drinking.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 0.355l from Pivo, Oulu. Colour is almost black with small brownish white head. Quite carbonated. Aromas and flavours are caramel, raisins, hints of smoke and malts. Pretty dry but still very pleasant surprise for a beer coming so far away.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma is of basement and dough aromas, and the appearance of the beer is a dark brown with no head. The taste is of umami and a little sweet, and it is medium-light and slick with a very abrupt finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A black beer with a quickly dissolving brown head. It's deceptive, as it is not a thick, rich beer as its appearance would lead one to believe. Somewhat sweet, some raisins and plum notes. Good mouthfeel. Really enjoyed this one.
