3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours nicely reddish-amber, quite clear with a small and steady head. Aroma has some caramel, a bit of alcohol bite. Aroma is somewhat sticky, reminding a fruity Belgian red ale. Taste - softly sharp. You can feel some mild and subtle fruit notes but at the same time hop bitterness is quite high, alcohol biting as well. Caramel and bitter herb candy. Aftertaste is also slightly bitter, lasts for a while, burning your tongue. Tried to pair this with pork, worked quite OK.

Pours a dark copper colour with a white firm head. Aroma of sweet malts, some glue and berries. Flavour of toasted malts, yeast, glue, harsh grains and loads of residual sugar. Medium bodied, thin mouthfeel and low-ish carbonation. Unclean, raw and unpleasant. Not good.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
330ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Shitty strong lager aroma, just what the tramps like. Wallpaper paste, quite a few esters, but some acetone-like aspects too. Tastes just as bad. Horror. Sticky sweet malts, booze coming off. Smooth palate, decent carbonation. Dirty esters, chemical and harsh. Sweet and rough. Nope, do not want.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Colour...clear amber with a thick off white head. Nose...roasty, malty and sweet. Palate...dry for a doppelbock, but that’s ok as most doppelbocks are too sweet for me! There’s honey and honey malt with heather and light spice. A decent effort!
