3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap (Koht, Tallinn)
Rich aroma, sweetish mellow smoke, some umami-hinting soyey meatiness, odd offal aspect too, alas. Dry smoky taste, but with a milky feel, I know smoked milk doesn’t exist, so let’s call it smoked cheese without the cheese. Palate lightish, a little flat. Finish drier and smokier, less full, but no less pleasant. A bit of a weird one, with some downsides, but all in all one that keeps me happy to sip at it.
