zenkis (497) - Ogre, LATVIA - MAY 22, 2013
Pours deep dark with reddish tones, beige-tan top, frothy foam, spoty acceptable lacing. Aroma- sweet malt profile with huge presence of roasted malt, plus weird spicy-sweet something (maybe toasted pilsner malt), also some dark rye bread roast. In taste- dominant malt sweet backbone with toasted, roasted and bitter notes with minimal sour. Long medium dry finish, medium body, watery and a bit creamy texture.No hopping felt. Weird but in flavor I sensed something like omelety sweetness. O.A. - brew seem like Bohemian pilsener but instead of hops bitter it has roasted one

FatPhil (8603) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 4, 2012
500ml can (Stockmann, Tallinn)
Very treacly aroma, caramelly and burnt. Very dark, small tight beige head. Slightly milky retronasals, caramelly and treacly. Smoothish sweet palate, crisp tingly carbonation. Sweet dark roast, quite toasty. Finish fairly burnt, and with a nice, but gentle, bitter tingle. Mostly easily drinkable, apart from it being perhaps a bit too sweet, I think this would be sickly if it got warm.
