3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beautiful appearance with a very dark amber body. A nice off white head forms and leaves decent lacing. Very pleasant aroma of toasted malt, cocoa, and raisins. The brew is very smooth, but a bit weak on the palate. Fairly sweet flavor with the malt and nutiness taking center stage. Aftertaste a bit like tea. Very good beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is cereal bread and sweet malt. Appearance is crystal clear dark brown orange with small off white head. Taste is big deep malt, bread crust forward. Clean minerally water. Hint of spicy hop flavor, bitterness blends well with malt and minerally water. Bit of honey and pilsener malt throughout. Palate is light and crisp with big soft malt on the tongue. Overall an excellent beer. Huge malt for such a small beer. One of the best I have had of this under appreciated style. Perfect example of the "bread crust" flavor found in many lagers.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Ambar de espuma beige poco consistente. Aroma malteado, dulce. Sigue en el sabor, poco compensada por un ligero amargor. Cuerpo ligero, bebible.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330 ml bottle. (No proper tasting notes, overall impression only) Sweet and sirupy nose, slightly spicy (cinnamon especially) with a solid toffee backbone. Pretty sweet as expected, almost cloying and overall unimpressive. Meh!

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Slightly milky taste, and not in a good way. Toasted aroma that seems a little bit off. This one isn’t great.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
33 cl bottle from Liviko Alcostore in Tallinn (€ 1.35). BB 24.03.16. Pours a clear coppery amber colour with a smal light beige head that retains quite nicely and leaves nearly no lacing. Floaties in the second pour, also gets darker in colour. On the nose it’s got rather pleasant roastiness, sourish black bread dough, berries, but it’s also nutty and has a slight burnt caramel note. Indeed it has a disturbing creamy or lactic undertone which gives off something like a milked-down chai latte aroma... Tastes rather bland with caramel and roasty notes most dominant, slightly metallic, then a berry bitterness and faint spiciness in the finish. Low carbonisation, body lightish, palate somewhat grainy and dry.

Amber colour and white head with ok retention. Malt, much caramel and milky aroma. Not a particular interesting beer.
