Bottled 330ml (Alko web)
Opaque colour, small steady brownish head. Sweetish aroma has vanilla, wood and sweet licorice. Medium-bodied. Vanilla, toasted malts. Finish has roastyness, some bitterness. Lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Hints of whisky but not dominating. Sweetish but not at all as sweet as Juomahammas I so quite drinkable.
330 ml bottlemjs (7778) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 14, 2017
Just a hint of whisky. Dark chocolate, dark malts, dark fruits, deep but smooth roast, licorice, vanilla, loafy bread. Intense long aftertaste with bitterness and alcohol heat. Stunning. Excellent job!
(Bottle, 0.33 l - batch 58.01 - BB 01.12.2019, from Alko, 20170714) The beer poured black. Its head was medium sized and lightly brown. Aroma had burnt malts, dark chocolate and whisky. Palate was full bodied and dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were burnt malts, wood, ash, whisky and bitterness. Aftertaste was burnt, woody and bitter. A too burnt and woody brew.
