probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2008
500 mL bottle via Lubiere, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Very dark mahogany, but still lets a fair bit of light through, clear, so-so tan head with some lacing. Aroma: Slightly tangy, rich chocolate and fruity dark-roasted malts, generous amounts of caramel/toffee, some bread crust and biscuit, a touch woody and ashen; quite inviting. Palate: Medium-ish body, fairly low carbonation giving a slick overall impression. Flav.: Much like the nose a bit tangy but also lots of chocolate and fruit and caramel, a bit more black coffee and light cardboard; finishes off-dry, basically no bitterness, very little after-taste, just a bit of mineral.

The best of the three I tried from this brewer. Tasty.

Bottle. Wow! This thing is cookie dough!! In other words, imagine mixing a cake of 80% butter, 15% cacao and 5% yeast: this is it. A good beer. Oh6gx gives you more details (below).

oh6gdx (26386) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 8, 2008
Bottled. Very dark ruby red colour with big beige fluffy/foamy head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, some smoked wood and mild acidic notes. Flavour is coffee, roasted malts and soem smoked wood. The smoke sits for long in the finish and aftertaste. A quite nice brew, even though a bit watery.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2008
Roast coffee aroma, dark chocolate and smoke, deep ruby, tiny toffee head. Taste is a muted malt, coffee has fallen away?, no chocolate. Light bodied, slightly sweet. Average.

FatPhil (15558) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 31, 2008
500ml (Opus K, Lohja)
Dark ruby red. Dry and burnt aroma, also a bit creamy. Coffee comes through later. Mouth-feel also creamy, and with lively carbonation, not too harsh. Some ginger in the taste, but apart from that dry and burnt. Very drinkable. The hint of honey that accompanies the malt is nice. Quaffable. The creamy coffee taste without simply cheating by adding coffee beans makes this a winner.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2008
Vey dark brown with a beige head. Very slight malt aroma, Taste is pleasantly restrained: some sweetness, more sourness, and a little bitterness. The carbonation is rather annoying, but overall this does a good job.

TBone (17047) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 20, 2008
Bottled (BB 08/2008)
Very dark ruby color, steady creamy beige head. Milky, chocolaty toasted aroma. Toasted malty, coffee liquerish flavor, burned maltyness and cocoa milk in the finish. Oatmeal is evident here. Interesting beer.

jercraigs (10247) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 20, 2008
2008-03-19. Very dark brown body with ruby highlights, modest creamy beige head. (3+) Sweet caramel malt aroma up front gains mocha and roast as it moves on. (6+) Flavour is similar, sweet mild malt with touches of caramel and dilute roasty mocha, pleasant but a bit thin. (6+) Average palate similarly borders on the thin side at times. In hindsight I find that it is similar to a lot of sweetish dark beers from the UK, it has a lot of these nice flavours that invite you to look deeper, but does not deliver any additional insight when you take them up on their offer. Pleasant and enjoyable but average. Bottle at Volo, Toronto

Bottle, thanks pivnizub. Light bready roast aroma. Dark chestnut, creamy brown head. Medium to light body, roasted, earthy and herbal hops, preserved plums, nutty finish. Roasted aftertaste.
