11/5/10. Shared at S3. Lightly roasty aroma with tons of booze on it. Hugely sweet flavor full of brown sugar, rum, dark fruits, and more. Reminds of roasty dessert wines and liquers. mlunger12 (645) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 7, 2010
Courtesy of drowland. Pours a pitch black, smell of a little grain alcohol. Taste is sweet, alcohol front and present. Something worth getting used to. I think I found myself drinking more of the bottle than anyone else, it grew on me. thornecb (5880) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 6, 2010
Pours...black into a snifter. Tan head quickly recedes to nothing. Roasted chocolate aromas. Thin with sweet hot chocolate upfront with a long alcohol burn. Keil (171) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 26, 2010
Aroma is chocolate chip cookies, coffee, booze. Lots of creamy, huge, healthy head for a 16%er. Lacing is great. Tons of booze, burns as it finishes.Thick molasses flavor, extremely sweet with a pleasant floral hop finish. Lots of complexities...worth the price tag. Thereís enough alcohol in this beer to kill a small petting zoo. kschep (1707) - DENMARK - OCT 24, 2010

Bottle thanks to Livingstone: Poured a deep black, with light frosty whisper bubbles. Nose was very aged liked barrel, however its not. Sweet alcohol burn hits you head on, chalky coffee and chocolate that doesnít slow the alcohol much. Not very drinkable, even split three ways! BeerBaboon (2083) - FINLAND - OCT 10, 2010
Very dark milkshake-like head which doesnít disappear easily. Sweetness, coffee and vanilla. 17,5% but not much of it comes through in itís taste. Thicker than Aretha Franklin. I noticed that it goes well with Brazilian prog. bigred22 (85) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 26, 2010
Okay seriously wtf is this stuff? I donít even know how to describe it. The most unique beer I have ever had. It almost had a sweet teriyaki flavor. Thick, no head and super oily. I have to try this again if I can find it, it is just to complex to not try again. wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2010
Bottle from Alko Helsinki Arkadia, Finland; shared with Slothez in Hartlepool. Poured as black as a Ravenís wing with a lingering dark brown head. Heavyweight snout that was chock a block with roasted malt, dark choc, hops, dark fruit and booze. Luxuriant, full bodied and thick mouthfeel. Flavour had bundles of roasted malt, a big hit of warming booze, more dark chocolate and fruits, with some coffee and liquorice notes. Finish just went on and on and on. A real pleasure to drink, and a beer that stands out from the crowd not only because of the label.

375 ml bottle. Rated @ 14.11.2009.
Raw brew. Pours a pitch black colour with a massive light brown head. Burnt wood, roasted coffee and malty notes on the aroma. Very rich and raw. Same thing on the nose where the espresso and roastiness dominate. Full bodied, very rich flavour and oily texture. Excellent brew with a lot of potential after storing.
2005 version @ Olutravintola Pannuhuone. Itís like drinking another beer compared to the raw version. Very barley wine -like with sweet taste and a alcohol warming mouthfeel. Both versions are awesome in their own ways.
