3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 330 ml bottle in Pühajärve, Estonia.
Opaque, black-brown with a thin creamy tan head and good lacing.
Aroma of toasted malt, the smokiness of smoked meat without the meat aroma, chocolate and a bare hint of citrus.
Taste of smokiness, chocolate, dark roasted malt and caramel.
Medium body and medium carbonation.
A very nice combination of rich smokiness and dark malt with just enough sweetness to balance the smokiness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l - 5.4% ABV - batch 004 - BBE 05/06/2014, from Drink Baar, 20140315) The beer poured almost black. Its head was medium sized and lightly brown. Aroma had smoke, burnt rubber, smoked ham and roasted malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Aftertaste was smoky, sweet and bitter. A pleasant smoked porter but it also contained some unpleasant rubbery and medical notes.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown beer with little light brown head. Aroma has some smoke, chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is mostly chocolatey and roasted, only slightly smoked. Quite long but mild finish, palate is medium full or maybe little thinner. Good that the smoke is only a spice, not the main ingredient. Quite simple but still nice.
