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.

28.6.2014. Almost black, brown head. Nice aroma with roasted malts, citrus hops and pine. Unfortunately taste does not follow. Its smooth, lightly carbonated, some roasted malts but not much piny hops as expected. Some liquorice sourness. Medium+ body. Not bad but could be better.

On bottle from Visionthing , thanks a lot- great stuff! Pitch black color, good brownish foam. High aroma intensity; roasted aromas, hops, choclate, leather, malt. Full body & high complexity . Good bitterness, very dry- balances very well. Very Enjoyable

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cola-colored clear body with a miniscule tan head. Nose has mild notes of tar, coffee, chololate and citrus fruits. Taste is bittersweet with a long, smoothly bitter finish. Medoium carbonation and slick, rich palate. A nice BIPA that could use a bit stronger hop aroma less roasty malt notes.
