3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Stockmann in Tallinn (€ 3,60). Batch 225. BB 25-03-2015. Pours a very dark clear brown; head is light creamy and brief. Nose is very heavy with honey and caramel, somewhat ashy and woody, and a bit of alcohol coming through, gets maltier later, I also get a weird lactic side note. Taste very caramelly sweet with notes of roastiness, finishing with moderate bitterness. Body medium, texture soft, dry and ashy on the palate, carbonation less than average. Alcohol barely noticeable. A bit of a confusing and unbalanced brew, can’t really put my finger on why I’m not enjoying this as much as I expected to.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big bottle poured into mug. Dark brown, minimal white head. Aroma of malt, toast, molasses, starburst, wheat, fruit, chocolate. I think there is some scotch in it. Rather unusual, would have been unpleasant if it wasn’t so interesting. Flavor is alcohol, yeast, malt, sugar, cocoa, bread. A touch of licorice and honey. Very tasty.
