24/06 0.33 l bottle, Batch 387, obviously shared with Marko. Great thanks Timo for bringing the beers here! It poured pitch black body with small head. Very nice coffee and creamy aroma. Elegant coffee malt flavor, very simple just as its nose, but nice. A bit watery, thinner in body. Slightly acidic and tart coffee finish. A cute little stout, quite subtle but very elegant.

Bottle, batch 387, courtesy of the most generous Pekko (thanks Timo!), shared with heavymickut (276) - Espoo, FINLAND - JAN 2, 2011
POured a pitch black body with a small brown head. Nice strong sweet oily but creamy nose. Coffee, pungent, some milk chocolate, some carrot. "Ends tea-like", whatever that means. Light but balanced and lovely for the ABV.
Bottled, batch 367. Pours opaque black with a short brown head. Taste is medium bitter, palate is watery and thin. Aroma has burnt malts and a hint of soap. rosenbergh (11682) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 5, 2010

Opaque black color, not much head. Strong burned, ashy aroma of dark malts. Light body. A bit acidic palate. Very burned, coal-like dark maltyness, some dark fruits, low bitterness. Tobacco, roasted malts in the aftertaste. Can’t trace rye here. One-dimensional, but not hopeless. Just needs more body.

7 Lovely chocolate cakey aroma, maybe a little bit buttery.
4 Black, tan head, settles to a ring quickly and then disappears.
6 slightly ashy and sludgy, but still a very tasty stout.Quite a lot squeezed into 4.2%
3 Sliightly watery mouthfeel, carbonation low - almost flat.
13 Maybe I had this a litle young, these guys usually improve for 3 months. Competent, but a little dead.
, Helsinki. Quite much pitch black colour, small brown head. Aroma is nuts, roasted malts, some dark fruits and ashtray. Flavour is being quite similar. Rather pleasant 4.2% beer. A bit thin in the flavour, but otherwise nice nice nice. .
