January 15, 2014. Bottle at WVRST. Bit of sourness on the nose. Beige head. Sour cherries and dark chocolate in the flavour with a touch of sweetness that becomes more dominant as you drink it. Quite lovely.

hens (500) - Tallinn, Estonia, ESTONIA - JAN 30, 2014
0.33L bottle. Light smoky, caramel aroma. Too light aroma. Spicy bubbles, overcooked black bread, light vanilla and bit wood flavors. Some sweet banana or melon is somewhere. Enjoyable pitchy, and the bitter end.
