Senka (882) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 31, 2015
50cl bottle. BBE15.10.15 Pours pitch black with white creamy head. Looks almost like Guinness. When looked closely - the beer is actually kind of grey. Light beer overall. Very clean water, and simple selection of malt and hops. It is not overloaded. Medium bodied with a pleasant carbonation. Finish is mild malts with some caramel and dry bitterness. A positive surprise. Definitely one of the good black beers out there.

CapFlu (4762) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 16, 2015
Pours a lasting beige frothy head atop a deep brown body. Nose of coffee and bread. Slightly tinny flavour with a good buttery malted finish. It’s pretty balanced and drinkable. Purchased at Metro Liquors University Heights for $4.25 per bottle.

Kauge (657) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle from eDrinks in Tallinn (€ 1,56). Pours brown with a shade of ruby. Head brief and fizzy, light beige. Nose: roasted malts and caramel dominant, faint notes of berries and dark fruits, or rather grape juice in the background. Taste: grainy malts and caramel, some ashy roastiness, slightly metallic and fruity in the finish. Dry on the palate. Medium body. Small but fizzy carbonation. Quite good!

Tumma simamainen aromi ja väri. Maku raikas, hapokas, luumuinen, hiivainen, makeahko. Kokonaisuutena ihan jeppiskamaa.

Moolesen (319) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle 50cl. Very dark brown with a light beige head. Nice aroma of roasted malt, little chocolate and some liqourice. Promising.... Surprising rich taste for a beer of only 5,2% alc/vol. It is of course no stout but a very pleasant beer which leaves a positive impression. Good beer
