2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
