Bottle. Pours dark brown with big, pillowy tan head that settles in minutes. Essentially no lacing. Aroma is toasted malt, toffee, lightly nutty, Flavor is light chocolate, toffee, with a sweet, cocoa, toasted malt, raspadura, caramel finish and a mildly bitter aftertaste. Flavor is simple and mild, perhaps a little stale. Soft to moderate carbonation, medium-light body, and smooth texture. Feels a little thin.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Tallinna Kaubamaja (€ 3,90) in Oct 2014. BB Feb 2015. Pours a semidark brown while appearing near black in the glass; it has a massive tan head that drops quite fast and leaves no lacing. Nose is pungent sweetness of the chocolaty malts, some cocoa and faint roastiness. As it warms it acquires some hints of dark berries and maybe even black olives. Or something. Taste begins with a restrained bittersweetness, continues with a more roasty and chocolaty aspect, while finishing malty / wheaty and dry. Body medium. Would’ve expected a softer palate. Carbonation disturbingly fizzy.
I should have drunk this much quicker - not good as it’s stood and warmed for some 15 minutes. In terms of other Brewfists I’ve had - except for Czech Norris - this here is quite a disappointment. May partly be due to my non-liking of the style.
