COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Who has once tasted Tõmmu Hiid, will never forget its taste. There is no other dark beer in Estonia that has such a mild taste. It is so light that you can drink it until the early morning hours. This is the beer that is present at all good parties and it will always feature in memories that are passed on from father to son.

Kauge (248) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 14, 2014
50 cl bottle at Sesoon (€ 2,20) in Tallinn, July 2014. Must have been at least 5 years since I last had it. Let’s see. Pours a nice reddish mahogany with a tan head, doesn’t stay long but doesn’t completely disappear either. Both aroma and taste are mostly caramelly and malty, slightly metallic too. Only a hint of bitterness in the short finish. Nose is sweeter than taste. Light body, mediumish lively carbonation. Was served very cold but it seems actually to be a whole lot better when at room temperature or slightly cooler; letting it warm also helps getting rid of some of the redundant carbonation, making the palate nice and smooth. Overall - it is very OK for a macro; years ago it must have been among the most drinkable local beers on the market. Today I’d say it’s really not far from the lower end of the craftier stuff we have in stores, maybe even better than some.

Grzesiek79 (3292) - Radom, POLAND - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle from trade with Marduk (Many Thanks!). Piwo brazowe z refleksami czerwieni i ciemnego bursztynu. Slodkie, karmelowe, brazowy cukier. Troche dla mnie za slodkie i karmelowe. Piana jest znosna choc niewielka ale wyglada ladnie, ale niestety tez szybko opada. Lekko gryzacy posmak w gardle i zbyt wysycone za bardzo. Piwo przecietne.

Had a lot of bad beers in Estonia last summer. And this I poured almost directly into the sink. Vile.

Erzengel (3438) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 2, 2014
0,5 l bottle, L 26 08 06 10:58 A/I Rating from 2006
Malzig-fruchtiges Bier mit dem Aroma dunkler Trockenfrüchte. Sehr süß mit harmonierender Bitternote. Etwas wässrig. Sehr süffig, aber viel zu süß, um die (in Ansätzen) guten Aromen richtig in Szene zu setzen…
