rosenbergh (11132) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2012
500 ml bottle. Black Door, Helsinki, Finland. Dark brown almost black colour with small tan head. Absolutely delicious aroma with piney and fruity hops, moderate bitterness, mild roasted malt, liquorice and dryness. Flavour is more roasted malt, dry liquorice, sweet sugary notes, some balancing hops, mild bitterness and anise. Aroma is more IPA and flavour more Stout/Porter. Yummy! Very very tasty. More of this please! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
