Roasted malt, hops, bitterness and licorice. What a nice surprise! Enjoyable.
33cl bottle from K-Supermarket Kamppi, Helsinki. Pours very dark brown, close to black, with a fairly large, but not too lasting beige head. Roasty and hoppy aroma with notes of licorice, pine, dark fruits and hints of herbs. Moderate to medium sweet with medium flavour intensity and bitterness. Quite okay.

33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 07/2018. Aroma has nice licorice and ashy tones. Flavour has licorice, ash, some hoppy tones and mild tobacco notes. Also faint traces of vegetables. A balanced black ipa; not too hoppy and gives also room for the roasted notes. A bit too ashy though. VastActiv (9357) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 13, 2018

33 cl bottle. BBE 08/2018.jookos (7718) - FINLAND - MAR 10, 2018
Pours dark brown color with a large beige head. Aroma is slightly burnt, earthy, some malty notes, subtle fruity tones, faint hops. Flavor is also burnt malty, subtle bitterness, ash, earthy and spicy notes. Feels a bit unbalanced and not very enjoyable either, a bit stuffy.
Bottle. Black. Roasty, pretty nice, some woody dark ashy, piney. Light med. Bit thin flavoured, med bittery finish. Green pine, light dark chocolate in flavour, but slightly watery feeling. Clean made, ok in that sense. Would expect more of a 5.5 ale.TBone (20560) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 24, 2018
