3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2013 Bottle. Nose of black sugar, roasted malt. Dark brick red, foamy head. Low carbonation. Smooth drinking. Wasn’t expecting much from this but was really pleasantly surprised. Good balance of sweetness and sourness. Not huge flavours, but robust and solid. Alcohol well hidden. Liked it a lot.

2.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma quasi inesistente. Solo un flebilissimo sentore caramellato and that’s it.
Schiuma abbondante ma poco compatta e poco persistente, colore ambra assolutamente cristallino.
Gusto dolce, delicato e rotondo al palato.
In definitiva non è poi così male.
Almost non-existent aroma. Just a very feeble caramel hint and that’s it.
Generous head but not compact and not persistent.
Absolutely crystal clear amber color.
Sweet taste, delicate and round on the palate.
Ultimately it’s not so bad.

Bottled 330ml from Tallinn. Deep clear amber color, quickly vanishing head. Grainy, a bit burnt sugar in the nose. Medium-bodied. Harsh grainy, malty with caramel and alcohol. A bit similar to Baltic dark/amber lagers.

Thanks Juraj for this! Lidl, Jesolo. Red-brown. Sweetish malty nose, quite correct and pleasant, more of the same in the taste though, malt dominated yet surprisingly drinkable. Not bad.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
330ml bottle. Dark brown color. Tiny head, disappears rather quickly. Malty, caramel, burnt sugar in aroma. Grainy, burnt sugar, ashy caramel in flavor. Slick mouthfeel. Nasty thing. Never again.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
330ml bottle (Stockmann, Tallinn)
Sweet caramelly aroma, but then turns savoury - yeasty maybe, or meaty. Smooth palate, dare I say umami, OK carbonation. Has a flavour. That’s about as positive as I can be about it. Meaty yeasty flavour. But sweet too. A messy finish, all of the flaws of the taste . Not super-nasty, but really not nice at all.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Malt and caramel with a dash of spice mix. Tastes like xmas beer. Beautiful strong earl grey tea color. No head. Flat carbonation, but when savored opens up and is rather pleasant. As for the finish - reminds of rauchbier. Not the best example of dunkler bock, but still is a good beer.
