3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared with MF666 <3. Black with a small light brown head. Taste all syrup, chocolate, cocoa, wood, minerals, earth, mild smoke. Full body, sticky texture, fine carbonation. Not offensive and carries the abv well, still not something that really stands out or gets me exited except for the sugar and booze. Perhaps a different experience when it was fresh as there is no trace of blackberries in it now.

Bottle shared at a tasting. Thanks Jon! Pitch black pour without a head. Roasted malt, faint smoke and light blackberry on the nose as it warms. Taste is fairly roasty with some espresso and roasted caramel. Not sweet, but some dark fruit and light sourness on the finish.

Poured into a teku showing pitch black center with thin rims of coffee translucency and no head.
The nose shows very light, barely perceivable notes of blackberry,
The palate is moderately carbonated and medium bodied. Hints of blackberry with slight residual dark fruit sweetness. Mid-palate shows light coffee notes and the finish shows heavy roasted malts. Linger shows a lot of heavy roasted malts once again.

Aroma has bready malt, some porto and roastiness. Flavour has soy sauce, salty licorice, some mild porto tones and alcohol. Could not locate the berries here but the licorice notes are nice.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Vintage 2012, pullon jämät. Lähes vaahdoton, mustanruskea väri. Tummuutta, luumua, huumaavaa intensiivisyyttä tuoksussa. Leipää, tummuutta, semivetisyyttä, luumua suutuntumassa, joka muuntautuu todella pehmeän makeaksi jälkiruoaksi. Ei moniulotteisin, mutta nautittava tuotos.

750 ml bottle. 2012 vintage. Thanks me. Pours a pitch black colour with a small beige head. Aroma of very rich deep blackberry notes, roastiness, licorice and dark chocolate. Very rich flavour of roastiness, blackberries, salty licorice, dark chocolate, a bit of sweetness, red berry tartness and wood. Full bodied. Extremely complex and tasty. Brilliant. Berry overload only for true brotherboys.

75 cl bottle @ ISKTR V.
Pours black color with a large beige head, gusher alert. Quite hoppy aroma, dark roasted malts, some cocoa and fruity notes. Sweet coffee notes on the flavor, tobacco, tar and dark berries. Not very pleasant, too much berries, I like the faint coffee notes though.
