Kauge (658) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 1, 2015
Tap at Speakeasy by Põhjala. Near black body with a brief head. Fudgy, very full, chocolaty, vinous and syrupy arom, also cocoa. Not boozy. Very sweet, syrupy and vinous taste with a tingle of alcoholic warmth in the throat. Dense mouthfeel, flat carbonation, some bitterness in the finish, berries, slight ashiness... Great stuff!

Tap (TCBW15)
Odd fruity aroma, gentle bacony sweet smokiness. Slightly harsh palate, a little acidic and burnt. Good roast though. Full and sweetish, leaves the lips sticky. A bit heavy and doesn’t do enough to hide its strength.

Marduk (3863) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 30, 2015
Tap @TCBW2015. Very dark brown color. Tiny bubbly brown head, disappears. Alcohol, sweet, deep roast, chocolate in aroma. Sweet, nice fresh roast, grainy, alcohol, chocolate in taste. Lovely deep roast in aftertaste. Roast bitterness ratio is spot on. Alcohol is tad too visible, but still nice brew!

jookos (3373) - FINLAND - MAR 28, 2015
Tap@tcbw15. Dark brown black, fast dissapating offwhite head. Some wood, oakish, some black currants, yeasty dough. Sweetness, licorice, wood, roast. Sort of nicely roasted, but somewhat bland still. Strange textured, bit oily slimey. Drinkable, but dissapointing.
