, shared with Niko (backlog). Very close to black colour with a small beige head. Aroma is fruity, mildly ashy and roasted malts along with some nutty notes. Flavour is ashy and roasted malts along with a nice hoppy bitterness to it. Also some slight nutty notes in the aftertaste.
Draught at Plevna. Almost black color. Gently roasty aroma and flavor with nuts, toffee, chocolate as well as grassy-citrusy hops. Balance slightly more on a malt side but hop aroma and flavor is noticeable too. Medium body. Pleasant easy drinking ale with no rough edges. ration (2263) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 14, 2012

Draught @ the brewpub, Tampere.laiti (8513) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 28, 2012
Pours a black colour with a white lacy head. Aroma is roasted malts, bread and syrupy sweetness. Flavour is rather rich with roasted malts, tar, bread, grassy hops, sweet raisins and some licorice. Mild bitter chocolate notes as well. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Very enjoyable. They should make this a regular brew.

Draught @ the brewpub
Aroma is malty with roasted notes and hints of chocolate. Flavour is malty with roasted notes, some coffee and dark chocolate. The house aroma is present in the background. Dry and slightly ashy finish. Could be more rich but good anyway.
