2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Malty smell, dark appearance with an off white head. The taste is very strange; mostly malty, very grainy and bready. Not that complex a beer either with a thin mouthfeel and little aftertaste but noticeably dry with low hop presence. Not very good but drinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
50 cl bottle from Liviko Alcostore in Tallinn (€ 1.40). 4.3 % ABV; BB 20.11.15. Pours a chestnut brown colour with a big beige foamy head. Retention OK and lacing minimal. The aroma is roasty, bready, with a bit of herbal hoppiness. Later on a bit of buttery and muddy notes. Tastes of... well, roasted malts and nuts... but it’s all rather faint, restrained and mild but I can’t help but find myself enjoy it. The taste is pure and clear, yet not very specific. Lightish medium body with below average carbonisation. Kind of boring, slightly watery, but highly drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared 11.2 bottles poured to snifters, showing a clear, ruby highlighted brown tone, with a presentable layer of off white/light tan head foam that reduced to a lasting ring & light film, leaving spots & strands of lacing on the glass. The nose was malty, with some roasted character, a touch of coffee, soft grain, and light caramel sweetness. Light bodied, with fair carbonation, the taste was similar notes, but mainly possessed a rather thin texture and flavor.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Butelka. Piana beżowa, drobna, redukuje się jednak szybko do obrączki. Barwa ciemnobrązowa, klarowne.
Aromat jest słodki, dominuje przypalony karmel, lekkie melanoidy. Tak samo jest w smaku, słodowe i zbyt słodkie, do tego mokry karton. Goryczka niska, nasycenie umiarkowane. Na dłuższą metę męczące.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pitch black, huge tan head. Lots of malt, caramel, but there is also something smelly in it. Can’t figure out. Taste is somewhat empty. Watery texture, soft carbonation. Passable.
