4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pitch black pour with minimal, quickly vanishing tan head. Roasted malts and coffee hit the nose intensely. Alcohol is also discretely detectable in the aromas. The taste is of moderately bitterness which turns more sharp in the lingering aftertaste. Flavors of roasted malts, dark roasted moka coffee, hops, peanuts and licorice blend together in harmony. Thick texture, low carbonation. Great.

Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours black with a brownish medium-sized head. The aroma features The aroma features strong roasty maltiness with roasty coffee, dark chocolate, licorice. Very rich and powerful. Taste is dry, displaying abundantly rich dark malty flavours; coffee and rye bread seem strongest but also chocolate and licorice appear. The palate is medium to full bodied, smooth and low in carbonation. Warming but not boozy. Great take on this great style.
