6.9% bottle from the supermarket in Tallinn for about a euro. A nice dark brown-black pour with a tan head. A slightly grainy sweet caramel aroma. The taste is alright, decent body, a bit bitter, mild chocolate with some roastiness. I preferred A. Le Co, Koff, etc...

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a pint-sized bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a full, wet/watery black body with a big foamy-creamy dark tan head that had good retention, and great lacing and cling. Its aroma had a floral and dark fruit bend, with some notes of chocolate, licorice, and raisin, and light touches of molasses and candy, and some earthy hops. It had a deep fruity sweetness with some lighter chocolate and caramel, and a sour grainy and earthy component, with touches of licorice and molasses. Its body was wet and watery with a lighter and thinner mouthfeel, and lower carbonation and fizz.
