’Hara’s, Tampere, Finland. Bitter, though slightly sweet aroma with berries and some coffee. Dark mahogny color with small light beige head and clear liquid. Medium, averagely balanced taste with lightly roasted malts, some butter cookies, dark chocolate. Narrow/medium taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with slightly bitter malts. Light/medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, quite tasty for percentage, especially the buttery flavor.

Bottle. Black in color with a tan head. Roasted malts, dark chocolate and slightly burnt bready notes in aroma. Quite dry mouthfeel. Dark bready maltyness, some sweetness and chocolatey notes in taste. Soft and smooth with nice, slightly burnt flavors in the end.

Pours black, big brown head. Aromantic of toast, toffee, dark fruit. Taste has an interesting bitterness over the sweet malt and a dark fruitiness, some coffee. Mouthful is light. FatPhil (15961) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 26, 2016
355ml bottle (Pien, Helsinki)Marduk (7582) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 26, 2016
Pleasant sweetish roasty aroma, a bit of burnt toast, but saying more dunkel than schwarz. Dar red, brief tan head. Thinnish palate, some burnt dryness. Some lactic aspect, also some hop pungency, but these things are fleet, and non-reproduceable. Bit messy. Dullish cerne, I’d prefer almost any czech one, but certainly drinkable. (And now I imagine Beer House Dunkles, from just round the corner, which nukes even the czech ones off the map.)
355ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Very dark brown, chestnut color. Medium size, beige-brownish head, stays. Nutty, sweet, roast, caramel, bit buttery in aroma. Roast, old wet carpet, nutty, husky, grainy in taste. Sharp, large bubble type of carbonation. Nutty, barley roast in aftertaste. Oily / buttery mouthfeel. Solid brew.

Can from my old buddy Brian. Pours a super dark cola color with a tan head. The smell is roasted dark malt, some molasses, coffee. The taste is as it smells with some dark fruit lingering as well then a dry roasty ending. The body is light with about average carbonation. Pretty decent overall and at 4% it’s a sessionable. ogre71 (359) - Utah, USA - DEC 11, 2016
Not a big fan of dark beers. But this one was very drinkable. Lots of malty sweetness smooth easy drinking. Would recommend.
