2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
750ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Sweet raisiny aroma, bran and other rabbitfood. Some heavy esters, but a little alcohol too, even through the sugars. Stodgy, a little marmitey in its yeastiness. Heavy and sticky, but not boozy per se. Strange rubberiness in the taste. Odd burntness in the finish, a bit dirty, and a little bit yeasty. Even more booze comes over in the aroma later, but not offensively so, as the sugars cover it. A bit of a weird one, no reason for a beer like this to exist when the Germans do decent strong bocks.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 750ml. -from Svijet Piva Zagreb. Dark brown coloured with red glare, medium to big sized brown head, pleasant caramel and alcohol nose. Sweet malty, caramel, dried fruits and alcohol with notes of hops and licorice. Mild touch of chocolate in rather alcoholic finish. To be honest there’s nothing special here but I have to admit it’s tasty brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear, dark ruby red amber with a big, frothy, off white head. Aroma has lots of sweet chocolate, caramel malts and in general just huge amounts of malt. Figs, jam, strawberry and tobacco. Taste is sweet, malty chocolate with a slight hoppy end. Caramel sweetness, but still a pleasant beer to drink, also because the alcohol is hidden really well. Medium carbonation.
