The dark matter is in front of me, now it’s in my glass. Now it’s in my mouth. Now I’m turning into dark matter. Now I am a dark matter and I will rule the world tonight. In other words – it’s very pleasant beer. Toomio (604) - Joensuu, FINLAND - NOV 11, 2017
Joku oma Svengi puuttuu. Kaljaa ja cherryä. Komea etiketti ja ihan hyvä. Carcassonnen kyytipoika. mR_fr0g (13509) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2017

, from Alko Kaleva, Tampere, Finland. Strong nuances with slightly sour dark fruits like almond and raisin, dark chocolate and roasted nutty malts. Wide/medium taste spectrum and long aftertaste with nutty, roasted malts. Balanced. Strong/medium body with low/medium carbonation. Overall distinctive combination of fruity, slightly sour and roasted flavors. Too light body though and for the percentage the flavor could be more complex.
Bottle shared in Hackney - many thanks to Tipple. Pours clear, deep brown with a creamy, beige head. Great aroma, strong roast, ash, vanilla, bak but no cocoa. Medium sweet flavour with rich bittersweet chocolate, more ashy roast, scorched earth. Full bodied, lightly chewy, with fine carbonation. Warming finish, some burnt marshmallows, more ash, dark chocolate, vanilla beans, coffee. Solid. MonsterMagnet (1567) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2017
Bottle, pours black with a beige head. Sweet and rich, rich and sweet, like liquid toffee, fudge even with lactose, dark chocolate, burnt caramel, topped with a shot of espresso. Very nice, but one to share rather than to drink a whole bottle. jinroh (2277) - ESTONIA - NOV 2, 2017
Pours black with some beige foam on top. Light lacto nose, milk chocolate, bit of coffee. Taste has toffee, chocolate, some alcohol kick there but superbly balanced and easily drinkable. Abv is nowhere to be seen. Light toasty dry flavor. TimE (6130) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 1, 2017
Pitch black color. Dark brown head that isn’t that tight and quickly disapaites. Dog food, dark chocolate and tobacco leaves. Not too sweet, decent roasted malt, dark chocolate, tobacco leaves, well balanced, alcohol is not there. Finishes clean with dark chocokte and plums. Nice stuff but depth isn’t amazing as expected.
