Ölbeat 097: Ruosniemen Vuorineuvos

Brewery: Ruosniemen Panimo
Country: Finland
Style: Imperial Stout
Abv: 9,5 %
What about the beer?
Colour is blackish dark brown with a thin beige head. Aroma has a bit smoky roasted malts, espresso and dark chocolate. Taste begins with heavily charred-roasted malts with a hint of alcohol. Roasted malts and strong espresso come in front. Near the finish bitter hops, salty cocoa and some dark fruit flavours step to the side. Aftertaste has dry bitterness, dark chocolate and black coffee.

Very tasty and special Imperial Stout. Roasted malts, coffee and chocolate all come in bitter-dry and strong extremes. Alcohol tries to exist in the taste, but quickly dies out. Flavours are not in any way rounded or flattened but that just suits me. Damn, it's great to have excellent breweries in your home town.


Heavy punch-in-the-face brew cries for a similar song. Nothing similar with the noblity of the beer's name (vuorineuvos is a Finnish honorary title given for merits in industry) here's some Finnish heavy. The band connected itself to Finnish bulk lager brand later but who cares:

From the 2002 album Kuolleen kukan nimi, the song was written by Kotiteollisuus.
