UPDATED: MAR 25, 2014 Deep copper with white to beige head. Aroma.. not intense malty, light caramel, bit fruity Sweet with sour bitter finish. Sourness is not very pleasant this time. Decent beer, thou sourness even metallic touch in finish spoils the pleasure

ectuohy27 (543) - ESTONIA - OCT 2, 2013
Quality, with a nice layered mouthfeel and slight honey notes with a bit of caramel and malt, but unfortunately weighed down with a nearly sandpaper-sharp hop finish; not enjoyable

visionthing (2582) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 12, 2013
50cl bottle from Riga Airport. Pours clear mahagoni with a small, off-white head. Aroma of caramel and malt with some roasty and earthy notes and a hint of alcohol. Sweet, caramelly and mild malty with a hint of bitterness. Medium body with fairly average carbonation. Quite okay, but boring and a bit too much on the sweet side for my taste.

HoppyBudgie (640) - SOLA, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2013
Bottle. Dark amber color with white head. Malty aroma. Sweet malty taste with a hint of smoked malt. A nice beer to sample.

Marduk (2495) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 29, 2013
Tap. Dark brown color. Small off-white head, stays. Honey, sweet, butter, malty and bready aroma. Hops, mild caramel, malty, chocolate and peppermint in flavor. Honey and chocolate in aftertaste. Juicy mouthfeel. Quite nice.

larsga (6120) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 28, 2013
Big brown lasting head. Clear deep brown body with light carbonation. Light roasty earthy caramelly aroma with spicy minty herbal notes. Dry-sweet earthy minty musty taste with grainy compost notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish fizzy mouthfeel. Dryish minty caramelly earthy aftertaste with roasty dusty wooden notes. Interesting and unusual, but a bit musty and earthy. (0.3l draft at Citi Laiki, Riga.)

rockonbeerblog (15) - DENMARK - JAN 12, 2013
My Latvian roomate brought this home as part of a tour of Latvian beers. Pours a dark caramel color, no head. Smell is cloyingly sweet. The taste follows suit with an almost undrinkable sweetness. Not the best introduction to Latvian beer.

Bottled, from Stockmann, Riga. Clear brownish amber, small head. Buttery nose. Sweet with some cellar and caramel. Medium bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Lots of cellar, some iron in a finish with low bitterness.
