Skakapa (52) - Malm, - APR 19, 2012
Draught at Plevna in Tampere, Feb 2012. Dark brown, almost black with brown head. Smoke and chocolate are present in the aroma with a hint of caramel or cola. Goes down smoothly, almost too easy and would probably do well from racking. Cocoa and a light bitterness lingers.

330 ml bottle, bb 30/09/2018, from my EU Local Swap sender japppp, thanks!
Black body, with a medium, dense, dark beige head.
Aroma of coffee, cocoa, chocolate, vanilla, dark fruits, some liquorice.
Tastes of coffee, dark chocolate, caramel, vanilla, liquorice, wood, dark fruits, citric hops.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes roasty, dry, subtly sweet, wooden, with coffee, liquorice, cocoa, zesty hops.

Very nice. Smooth and dense, with a great balance, between the roasty and subtly sweet malts and quite a lot of hops. Alcohol is greatly hidden, doesnt drink too heavy. Great style example how I like it, while not among my favorite ones.

0,33l bottle at home shared by Saeglopur, big thanks for this one. BB 30.09.2018. black color, small coffee-colored head. smells earthy, licorice, molasses, light berry notes. does not sound like much but smell is very subtle and very smooth. good stuff. full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes earthy, some hops, pine, licorice, grass, citric, light ash, coffee grounds. finishes dry and quite roasty / earthy bitter with notes of coffee grounds, pine and ash notes. wow, very nice complex beer, nowadays this one would almost certainly run under the label "Black IPA", its quite hop-forward. hops lack a bit of crispness though, could have been even better. very very good stuff.

Tap at Ecker Line. Pours black with a small/medium sticky tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, espresso, dark fruits and even some bitter berries. Main ingredients of taste are roasted malts and coffee. Nuts, licorice and chocolate also clearly present. Palate is rich, full and smooth. Low carbonation, bitter hoppiness. Long finish, with bitterness slowly taking over the sweet mixture of licorice and coffee. Great beer in all its complexity, but the bitterness is a little too much for my taste.
