2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Umber color, that when held to the light reveals a near purple hue. Moderate tan head. Grain and dough, along with light caramel and sorghum. Seems a bit raw and nearly worty. Sweet dark caramel and chocolate flavors. Toasted dark grain bread. Certainly "meaty", but not a clean bock.

Quite a dark brown colour. Both the aroma and flavour are sweet with caramel dominating and some liquorice in the background.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 mL bottle. Appearance is a ruby/brown mixture in color with minimal off white head that quickly fades. Aroma is slightly fruity with hints of caramel. Flavor is again a mixture of caramel and fruit, but also contains a distinct off flavor that doesn’t kill the beer, but definitely takes away from it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Foamy, strong and very sweet. Propably added melasses or other cheap sweetener, but still it’s A great beer. Roasty - on the other hand home made "kvas", on the other hand close to quality sweet chezh dark. Great job Saku. And yes, you feel afterwards you have drunk something. (Must have over 6,7%. I bet for 9-10%. :)

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0,5 pullo@ Saku Areena. Kirkas tumman punertavan ruskea. Tuoksu mitään sanomaton. Maussa päälle iskee rauta, muutoin maistuu alkoholi & vieno paahteisuus.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark amber color, topped with average tan colored head.
Sweet malty aroma is easily picked up. There are also some fruit notes present.
The taste is malty and sweet, some caramel added in the end. Small bitterness.
OK, but nothing special.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
(bottle - 500 ml) Brown pour. Overly sweet and malty sugar aroma. Flavor is very sweet and malty as well. Too sweet really. I think that if it wasn’t as sweet it’d be better.

Bottle. Reddish brown color. Super sweet malty aroma. A bit too sweet for me. Malt and caramel in big amounts were overwhelming. I just couldn’t get past the sweetness.
