larsga (6684) - Oslo, - AUG 19, 2011
Big dark brown head. Opaque black body. Deep earthy chocolatey aroma with funky fruity resiny lacquer notes. Dry-sweet burnt chocolatey barnyard taste with floral herbal notes. Fullish body. Sharpish mouthfeel. Dry-bitter floral grassy burnt aftertaste with coffee and alcohol notes. Interesting and unusual, but not very harmonic. (0.33l bottle, wine monopoly Vika, Oslo.)

Nice soy/roast aroma. Sharp minerally palate. Gets worse on second sip. Just rough and nasty. Do not want.

suurjuust (1805) - ESTONIA - MAR 27, 2015
Black beer, tan head. Nose is chocolate, roast, vanilla notes, mild wood. Flavor is roasty, sour notes, malt, weird fruit notes. Nose is nice, but the flavor lets it down.

Marduk (3991) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 1, 2015
Tap @TCBW2015. Pitch black color. Medium size, brown head, stays. Sour, faint roast, grape must, dry yeast in aroma. Sour, rough roast, bit of plastic in taste. Rough roast turns to dull very quickly and then disappears completely. Plus is that alcohol is undetectable, but otherwise hmmm dull?

Kauge (696) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 31, 2015
Tap at Tallinn Craft Beer Weekend 2015. Looks like a Stout, feels like a Stout, but doesn’t taste or smell like a Stout. Extremely woody and sour on the nose, with roasted and chocolate notes in its taste. Not much if any alcohol detectable. Not sure why it’s an Imperial. A strange brew but not bad. I guess it’s true to the brewer’s style. Would not mind trying it again.
