3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2015 360ml bottle (BierKompass.de)
6 Pleasant portery aroma, a bit of coffee, but a bit of pulses too.
4 Very dark red, large tight tan head, fairly persistent.
7 Solid roasty taste, pleasant sharp burnt edges, some dry barky hoppiness too, in particular in the retronasals ig you linger over swallowing. Some painty pencil sharpenings too.
4 Full and smooth in the palate, pleasant carbonation crispens it up nicely. Finish has most of the best parts of the taste, and few of the weaker parts. The dryness is palpable, this is very well attenuated.
14 Yet another corker from Baird - this is such an easy beer to drink despite the aspects they are quite happy to describe as "acrid", but for a lover of bitterness, and dryness, I think don’t deserve quite that term. No idea where they hid the 6%. In my belly, that’s where - all gone...
Rerate: Keg (Pudel, Tallinn) (7:4:7:3:13=3.5)
Honey and dark grains aroma. Very dry hoppy bitterness, and nice malts in the mough. Fizzier palate - keggier. Still very good, but with its strengths in different places.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours near black with a low creamy tan head, decent lacing. A light milk coffee aroma, gentle chocolate and light caramel. Smooth dark malt flavour, chocolate sweetness, a tinge of coffee. Really easy drinking, a creamy texture, coats the tongue, light-medium body, low bitterness. A beer that’s so smooth and not assertive that it glides by, nice gentle flavour, easy to down a few in one session.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nez assez frais de café et de notes légèrement fumées, avec un fond de verdure, d’un léger houblonnage assez fruité et herbace.
La bouche est légère, corps timide, attaque plutôt caramel qui se porte vite sur le café et une superbe longueur fumée et un houblonnage semi agrumes semi herbace et floral.
Joli bière, assez aqueuse mais qui propose des choses.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black with quickly going beige head. Aroma is raisin, cocoa, milk, coconut oil, mild toasted white bread, tofu. Taste is light, watery, some sweet cocoa notes, light medium roasted coffee, some fruit sourness, a bit crispy white bread. Little bit burnt after. A bit disappointment of such light taste, otherwise very easy to drink.
