If I understood the discussion correctly, this was brewed by the brewmaster at Kochi Ait in Viru’s facilities before he gets his own facilities up and running.

A more watery dunkel than previous tries around town, this one was take-it-or-leave-it; some interesting notes of toffee and caramel, but drowned out (literally)

Draught @ Kochi Ait, Tallinn

Pours dark reddish brown with a small head. Aroma of malts, earthy notes, some nuts and caramel. Taste is malty with sweetish notes of caramel and nuts and some earthy notes. Finish is a bit watery, sweet and malty with light fruity hoppiness. Okay, a bit too sweet and slightly unbalanced.

Tap @Kochi Ait. Hazy copper color. No head, absolutely flat. Fizzy, bubbly look. Mellow citric hops and iron in aroma and thats about it. Watery texture, very mild hops, and if you are really patient slight caramel. Minerals in aftertaste. I can’t say its bad, but no depth whatsoever. If it is made by Viru then this is the first beer which has no Viru writen all over.

Tap (Kochi Ait, Tallinn)
Initially a really pungent hoppy aroma. Some roasted malts too, a little bit vegetal perhaps. Quite brown aley in the mouth, including a stranve soury tinge, but also quite irony too. A little mashy, and again some stewed brasicas. Some pleasantly choco-like grains in the finish (which is the only similarity to "porter" which some people were describing this beer as). Perhaps an over-rate, but I’m so happy to see an ale brewed in Eesti. Whilst this clearly has the Viru iron fingerprint, I happily stuck 2 pints of this down me before it got too much, and I could only manage 2 sips of their GB bullshit, so is incomparably better.
