From a bottle. Nice and beautiful dark color with thick white head. Not so much aroma in my opinion but the taste is smooth and malty.

FatPhil (9596) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 14, 2014
500ml bottle (ALEhouse, Riga)
Strangely latvian aroma, in the grains, a little milky. Fairly simple palate, a little sweet, but crisp carbonation cuts through that. Those latvian malts are there in the taste too, but itís nice. Nice marmaladey retronasals, sweetish, but lots of sweet mixed peel. Finish is nice and resiny, but not too sticky at all. Sweetish, but not sugary. Very nicely balanced. Hoppy Has room for more aging, Iím sure - letís put a year on our other bottle.

hawthorne00 (2543) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 10, 2014
Bottle, 11C. Reddish amber with a beige head that settles to a cm and sticks around. Aroma of prunes, toffee, apples, herbs. Medium bodied, low carbonation, fairly prominent alcohol. Sweet with a long moderately bitter, herbal and somewhat astringent finish. Lots of dark fruit and some toffee, but comfortably avoids heavy. Classy and coherent but not all that compelling.
