Gravity @ Wandsworth Common Halloween Beer Festival. The pour’s deep red with a small white head. The nose is plenty of roasted grains, sweet red berry fruits, hints of earthy cocoa. The taste is more sweet red berry jam, twig and roasted grain. Smooth malt flavors, a bit of bitter chocolate. The finish has a hint of bitter leaf and grass. Smooth, medium body. Quite flavorful.

Unde (511) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 6, 2015
Reddish brown colour with nice thick head on top and leaves circles of lacing. Aroma has tropical fruits and malts, maybe there is rye but couldn’t point it out. Taste has rye, malts, american hops, citrus, tropical fruits and some forest berries as well. Really exciting taste. Surprisingly full body for a 5% ale, carbonation was quite high. Nice rye ale.

Draught @ Tallinn Craft Beer Weekend 2015
Aroma has resin, some rye tones and fruits. Feels somewhat sweet. Flavour has minerals, sweet fruity tones, resin and fruity tones. This could be better with higher ABV; now this is a bit too watery. Not bad as-is anyway.
