UPDATED: JUL 9, 2017 On tap at CBH, Helsinki. Pours murky dark brown with a little white head. Taste offers strong yeasty spiciness, overripe fruitiness and sweet maltiness. Taste is medium sweet, later medium bitter; the palate is extremely full-bodied, thick and flat. Flavours of caramel, fudge, plum and chestnut. Slow and many ways also difficult to drink; rich flavours though.
