La Maousse Vanille de Tahiti, Switzerland
Night flight 1/4. The color is muddy, very deep dark brown. Carbonation is subdued, and the head shows a chocolatey face. Licorice in the air. No doubt about it. 🖤🖤  A bit of fresh roasted coffee beans, vanilla and a good slam of lactose. The taste profile is big: copious licorice hugs my tastebuds. Neatly roasted malt, not a sigh of burned residuals though, a drop of black coffee, vanilla, lactose, cacao nibs and oat flakes complete the journey. The body is full. The finish is heavily licoricey, fits well in the Finnish taste. 🖤🖤  Appealing. The aftertaste caresses my taste receptors for long. Really long. The mouthfeel is mellow, soft, smooth, deep and intense. It's roasty but, like I said, not burned at all. That's where the softness comes from. As a side note: I probably started tasting from the wrong end of the flight since this can well offer the most overwhelming palate of the four. Well, c'est la vie.
