At first it is startling. Then it is surprising. And in the end it is warming. jass89 (11) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 28, 2014
Põhjala Öö was the first craft beer I ever tried. It’s smokey, plum taste gives a nice added touch to the full body of Black IPA. Lovely lableing. Overall a pretty decent and great charactered BIPA RihardsF (86) - LATVIA - JAN 22, 2014
Pleasant quite smooth aroma of coffee. Easy drinkable thou with a full body. Complex malty taste with bitterness of roasted and coffee, some sweetness. Great brew. Vells (1894) - Rīga, LATVIA - JAN 19, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2014 Great surprise. Definitely huge brew. Well.. I am bit coffee fetish and this one.. this one fits me =] Intense roasted malts, lots of cocoa, coffee, choco.. great combo. Second wave comes with dried fruits, licorice, vanilla
Smooth and warming finish. ABV well hidden. Perfectly balanced, highly enjoyable brew. Actually its more like IMP for me, thou Baltic porter influence, makes this beer more extraordinary

Approached with high expectations, so perhaps not so fair score. The rich experience was ... was a bit too rich, even too noisy for me. Still compliments to brewmaster for trying hard - there’s enough of great aroma and taste nuancesnotes for at least 5 great tasting beers each with with crystalclear character. Looking forward to next crafts. Lambister (520) - FINLAND - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle, courtesy of K0mpsa. Black color, even looks like cola with small beige head. Wonderful aroma of coffee, roasted malts, vanilla cream. Lovely! Full bodied, toasted coffee beans and spices. Excellent in my opinion. Kalarel (34) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 13, 2013
