What about the beer?
Colour is black with a small tan head. Aroma has roasted malts, sweet coffee and chocolate. Taste begins with strong and bitter roast. Heavily roasted malts and bitter black coffee take over with spicy dark chocolate. Towards the end cocoa bitterness and roasted-malty sweetness get through with some salty liquorice. Aftertaste has roasty-ashy dryness and strong cocoa bitterness.
Powerful and straightforward Imperial Stout. Strong basic flavours – roast, dark chocolate, coffee, bitterness, salty liquorice – , no fancy tricks. In the end there’s nothing but a delicious quality brew. Ôllenaut hits the spot once again.


Because the brew is named after the nickname of female Mark V tank used by Estonian Army in the Estonian Independence War in 1919-20, I chose a war-themed song. The beer deserves a heavy song with a strong message. The simplified message is: ”Warmonging is f**king stupid.”—

From the 1970 album Paranoid, the song was written by Tony Iommi, Ozzy Osbourne, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward.
