3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle from Tallinna Kaubamaja Toidumaailm. Pours very brown, almost black. Beer seems to be very liquid, no viscosity. Has initially a nice foam head, beige - but that disappears rapidly, leaving some nice lacing on a glass. Aroma is not very strong but has some hops, some subdued roastiness. Taste has dark malts, roast and also floral hop flavours. Some sort of sour note lingering with some dry roast. Overall interesting beer, body a bit shallow for 6,5% beer - but it must be said that alcohol doesn’t show at all and it feels much lighter. Could drink it again.

Pours dark and deep, but almost no head. Fresh rich smell, bitter and aromatic. Toasty taste goes down brilliantly. And it has dogs in the label, which is always a plus.
