3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl bottle from Tallinna Kaubamaja (€ 4,60) in Sept 2014. Pours a very dark brown with a huge tan head that retains extremely well and leaves some islets of lacing. Nose is very roasty, bitter chocolate and cold coffee, a bit sugary and hinting at the bitterness... Taste is indeed bitter, but more at the end, whereas in the beginning it’s fairly sweet with notes of caramel and chocolate most pronounced. Also some dry, ashy roastiness. Medium body, slightly oily or slick mouthfeel. An active but thin carboration. Finish is dry, bitter and roasty. Overall it’s got a certain in-your-face attitude, it’s somewhat robust and edgy, yet terribly enjoyable.
