2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle found in an Eastern European off licence in Nottingham. Pours deep ruby with a quickly fading tan head. Smells fruity and a little funky. This is a very sweet beer, quite syrupy and fruity. There are some malt notes too. Not great, but not terrible.

The head is ok, the body almost black. It smells a bit fruity, bitter, less hoppy. The taste is dry, hoppy, mild and a bit bitter. Ok .12/10/10/9/-/10 3.1

This beer was a strange experience. Hardly any hoppiness, sweet milky flavor, brown color. I don’t recommend this one.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very solid! Interesting beer; aroma is the same basic dark-malt and roast, but the taste is fairly light, with a less weighty palate and elements of apple to go with the usual chestnut and faint chocolate--better than the overpowering stickiness of other Baltic dark brews. True to style, even though it’s a rare style for the region

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle. Thanks Andris!
Pours a dark brown colour a white foamy head. Aroma of strong sweet raisins, nuts, corn and palm. Flavour is rather sweet with caramel, raisins, nuts and rather interesting strong spiciness. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a dry, nutty, slightly sweet finish. Surprisingly good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5 L bottle kindly shared by larsga. A lightly tanned head, upon a hazy copper colored body. Nutty, spicy and caramel-scented nose. Quite sweet flavored. More nuts, some dark dried fruits, and hint of Christmassy spices. Body is light plus. Oily mouthfeel.
