oh6gdx (25767) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2012
Bottled (from Ales By Mail). More or less pitch black colour, small brown head. Aroma is mild liquorice, some berries, slight not too roasted coffeeish notes. Flavour is liquorice, mild blackcurrant (and slightly other berries as well) along with some toffee, mild roasted malts and some slight chocolaty notes. Quite solid, but a bit thin palate.

adster (757) - HUNGARY - SEP 14, 2014
Koromfekete, olajos testű ital egy tejsznszerű, bzs sznű habftyollal a tetejn, ami idővel kiss sszeesik ugyan, de mindvgig megmarad krmes, vkony fedlknt a srn. Illata fanyar, enyhe vadon termett gymlcss rnyalattal, amit egy prklt malts, kvs aroma lel krl. A szavatossgi idő leteltt kvetően joggal merl fel a krds, hogy az adott pillanatban rezhető jellemvonsokat a sr termszetnek, vagy az idő vasfognak szmljra rjuk inkbb, mindenesetre az illatban is tetten rhető savanyks jelleg hatrozottan szerephez jut az zben is. Az ecetes, savas krnyezet rvnyeslni hagy nmi bogys gymlcss, ha gy tetszik feketeribizlis hatst is, melyet sszessgben egyre kevsb tallunk erőltetett hasonlatnak, az idő mlsval leginkbb ezzel az sszetevővel kikvezett plyn haladnak a sr zbli jellemvonsai. Ha elvonatkoztatunk a szavatossgi krdskrtől, s az zhats tern tapasztalt krlmnyeket a hozzadott komponensek szmljra rjuk, gy egy rendkvl rdekes karakter megtesteslsnek lehetnk tani, melyben a leginkbb az utzben rvnyeslő feketeribizli jelenlte remek ellenslyt alkot a kvs-malts, pirtott zjegyekkel szemben. Az sszetevők kztt hivatkozott desgykr sajtossgai szmomra tkletesen ismeretlenek, az angol sz medvecukorknt trtnő azonostsnak helytllsgval szemben pedig az nizsos felhangok hinya breszt ktsget, gy ezen alkotelemről hitelesen nyilatkozni nem igazn tudok. Valamit azonban biztosan hozzad a főzet tartalmhoz, mert egybknt egy rdekes, tetszetősen jszerű zvilg mutatkozik meg benne.

lusikka (7757) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 31, 2013
500 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a creamy white head. Aroma of is rather weak with some roastiness and blackcurrant.

Dry, minimally roasty dark malty aroma, a touch of liquorice, subtle hints of dark berries and tobacco.
