The nose features very dark fresh ground coffee with a touch of cream. The taste is highlighted by super integration. The fresh ground coffee leads the taste profile as well, with milk chocolate and a touch of molasses, which comes out as the beer warms up.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle. BB 05/11/19. (Alko) Tampere, Finland.
Pitch black color with a small tan head.
Black coffee, dark roast and some roasted malt in the aroma.
The flavor is also pure black roasted coffee... unfortunately I can’t find much more. I’m learning to like coffee stouts but obviously I’m not there yet. Rich and thick palate.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Thick black pour with lots of foam. On the nose, heavy aromas of coffee, milk chocolate and malt. Taste is first rich milk chocolate and caramel before the coffee kicks in, resulting in a slightly bitter, but long, long aftertaste. Full body, soft carbonation. An excellent stout that I would definetely drink again.
