steinar (54) - rvk, - DEC 2, 2011
Pours black. Sweet malty aroma. Taste is plain malty and sweet. Caramel notes. Very little carbonation. Smooth on the palate. Light bodied. Very like the icelandic malt but with added flavor and less carbonation.

visionthing (4683) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 20, 2016
33cl bottle from SIP veini- ja õllepood, Tallinn. Pours clear mahogany with a modest off-white to beige head. Malty aroma with caramel, hints of roasted malt and spices. Fairly sweet, but not to cloying, rather mild flavours and not much bitterness. Hardly very interesting, but drinkable enough.

Marduk (6011) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 27, 2015
330ml bottle. Clear very dark brown color. Small size, beige head, disappears. Sweet, grapes, malty, marmalade in aroma. Malty, sweet, bready, rye in taste. Rye bread in aftertaste. Watery, bland and messy. Not worth the price I paid for it.

martjoobolut (2814) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 26, 2015
Bottle (from UJH). Pours dark brown with beige head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is sweet, malty, grainy, spicy. Flavor is sweet and slightly bitter, malt, some grainy notes, spices, toffee. some licorice. Body is watery. Carbonation is on higher side. Overall: passable as sweet-spicy-malty-watery-lagerish drink, but has nothing to do with sweet stout (current style in rb). Ohh and -1 to overall for using food coloring.

FatPhil (13313) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 25, 2015
330ml bottle - shared by Marduk, thanks!
Sickly sweet malty aroma, some raisins, and caramel, even some cakey spiciness. Taste likewise, gets a bit of alcohol later. Finish sugary and sweet too. Do not recognise this as a stout, it’s a sweet spicy nonsense.

AshtonMcCobb (5038) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 3, 2015
Can thanks to Victor, from Iceland! Thank you sir! Appearance - close to opaque black but with some red chinks around the bottom of the glass. A decent head that ends up thin. Nose - toffee to molasses, light liquorice. Taste - more sweet toffee. Palate - medium bodied with a tangy texture and a finish that is a bit sweet. Overall - a bit too sweet.
