2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle (Stockman, Tallinn)
Almost black, brief fizzy tan head. Slightly sharp and almost sour aroma,
but not off. Sharp carbonation, quite harsh. Roasted body. Taste has
some of the sharpness from the aroma, and quite a kick of really burnt
malts. Not so far as to be ashy though, quite a good schwartz in fact.
Finish is almost entirely deeply roasted malts.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at Craft Brewery, Athens. It pours darkest brown, with a thick light tan head. The nose is caramel, toffee, latte and light roasted malt. The taste is chocolate, caramel, lactose, filter coffee, light roasted malt and a touch of liquorice. Medium body, fine carbonation, foamy mouth-feel and good balance. Tasty and very easy drinking.
