On tap at Suuret oluet - pienet panimot 2016, Helsinki. Close to pitch black with a rather small, but lasting, beige head. Aroma of roasted malt with dark fruits, tar, chocolate, licorice and hints of pine and herbs. Medium sweet with complex flavours and a balanced bitterness. Full-bodied with carbonation slightly on the soft side. Certainly a decent IS.

I rate beers I think significantly better than average, simple as that. I am not into showing off through prolix bloviating. My honest appraisals will offset those who intentionally downgrade excellent beers attempting to appear a snob. . :)

From notes: Bottle from Alko last year. Nice malty and a bit hoppy aroma. Full body. Long, bitter taste, some roasted malts. Balanced and somewhat complex overall. Great stuff.

Punkero (398) - FINLAND - JAN 30, 2016
Dark as a black hole. Stingy roasted taste. A hint of hops. Thick oily body, but definitely a stout. Not too sweet. Awesome like Siperia.

Kauge (1873) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 27, 2016
Bottle as a gift from Helsinki. BB 11.2017. Pours dark brown, appearing black in the glass, with an inconsistent tan head leaving some scattered lace. The aroma is so nice... Very roasty, at points even ashy, sweet, with a mountain of berry and pine needle bitter hops, and a bit of a musky cat peey note there as well. As its warmed, a whiff of mellow booziness appears at times. Tastes more bitter than sweet, which I like. The bitter and roast make for a very soothing effect, but underlaying is a moderate vanilla sweetness. The mouthfeel is soft and smooth, and gets a bit sticky as it warms. Carbonation very thin and only just noticeable. Alcohol hidden. An excellent, stimulating sipper.

SlovakSniper (5467) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2016
0,33 cl from Janne. Thx man! Tunique presque noire et grande tte brune bouriffe. Ses parfums malts riches (chocolat, caramel, caf, rti, fruits) et de houblons gnreux (citriques, forestiers, rsineux) me plaisent beaucoup. Le got chocolat et fruit montre galement de la rglisse, de la vanille, des aiguilles de pin et de la rsine. Son corps ample et peu motiv par les bulles a une texture crmeuse. La finale amre de houblons et de malts rtis est extrmement agrable.
