3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.75 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Dark amber color. Sweet aroma of raisins, caramel, toffee. Sweet bready, raisiny with licorice, cocoa nibs, warming alcohol and some herbal bitterness which grows towards finish. Medium to full body. Alcohol is not stingy but it gives this beer a weird bitter, acidic and drying finish.

660ml bottle (?, Tallinn) - shared by old Marduk - thanks!
Papery aroma. Looks good, a reddy brown with a nice off-white head. Pretty nasty palate. Vomit burn in the back of my mouth. Nasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Found this one in a bottle at DeLaurenti -- thanks to Ann for the gift card! Seemed like it was pouring a bit light at first, but the full glass reveals a nice transparent nut brown with a slight reddish note. Brown sugar, figs and dates, and a bit of nut shell on the nose. Flavor brings a tinny note (cheap hops?), though follows fairly well. It has a nice, full, smooth body, and is actually far more drinkable than I’d imagined. This was a nice surprise.

Pours clear brown with a thick but fading tan head. Aroma and taste of caramel, nuts, with a sort of plastic edge to it. Sweet taste fades into a grainy finish.
