Head: creamy color, thick when poured, thin layer when undisturbed, but doesnít disappear; beautiful lacing. Aroma: strong malt and sweet roast, smoked plum, raisins, also alcohol is noticeable Color: dark orange / amber, a bit hazy, but no floating yeast Taste: strong and roasty maltiness, sweet and smoky with strong plum taste, caramel reminds me of maple syrup. Palate: full body, medium to low carbonation, nice silky mouthfeel and good roasty aftertaste that stays for a long time after swallowing.

Senka (1051) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 16, 2014
50cl boxed. This year is all about the body. Feels like a thick thick IPA. Quite flat, but extremely thick. Fine carbonation makes the texture exquisite. Fruity and malty. Alcohol is not noticeable at all. A perfect strong ale in its sense. I actually need to re-stock on this one.
