UPDATED: FEB 15, 2008 330ml bottle. (alko)
Almost black, tiny head. Sweet coffee-like aroma. Pleasant mouthfeel - soft and smooth. Slightly gingery hints to a dark burnt malty taste. Sweet and not astringent given how burnt it is. Fairly good dunkel.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle from an Alko store in Finland, courtesy of Finn Hansen. Described as an unfiltered, hand made slow beer. Bubbly and dense, fawn coloured head. Nice deep, deep, rosewood body. Smell of cocoa and chocolate malts. Sweet dark malts in flavour complemented by herbal dryness and noticeable, balancing bitterness to the finish. A bit foamy in the mouth. Highly drinkable (at home, Tromsř 22.09.2009).
