lusikka (7793) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2015
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.

olio (9941) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2015
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.

Rating #1600 Pours pitch black with a brown head. Aroma of liquorice, chocolate, port, weak vanilla, smoke, coffee, cocoa, dark fruits and some roast. nice and smooth aroma. The taste is sweet with notes of port, dark berries, cocoa, chocolate, roasted malts and liquorice. The blackberries are subtle but you get some kind of dark berries both in the smell and taste. Nice and well done!
