3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Pothole in Tallinn (€ 3,10), August 2014. Pours a dark copper brown with a red glare and a fizzy creamish top that drops slowly, then disappears. Some sediment. Nose is bready malts, ripe fruit sweetness, yeasty spiciness - also caramel and plums. Taste is malts and caramel, faint plum liqueur. Grainy first, then sweet and autumny fruity, then bready, finish is on the sour side and rather bitter (and, alas, short). Medium body, medium plus carbonation, dry palate. Overall rather ok but not very interesting or memorable - would hesitate ever buying again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.33L bottle. Pours cloudy black with a frothy tan head. Aromas of bready malt, chocolate, and sugar. Medium sweet up front, with some vanilla and banana notes. Not much in middle other than sweetness, then to a mild roasted malt / coffee flavor at the end that doesn’t linger that long. Medium body with a creamy and chalky mouthfeel and active carbonation. Overall, on the sweeter side of stout. Pleasant enough, but not a huge amount of character though to make this one stand out.

Een lekker bier, met een complexe smaak. Ik vond het een goed bier, niet de beste, maar zeker geen tegenvaller

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Sugaya. Large yeasty nose, some roast, ripe thick raisins, and light spice. Cloudy brown, thin dark tan head, and some floaties (sediment). Light, slightly sourish, dark fruity initial / cherries, ripe apples, plums / goes to full-on sweetness in mid palate and also displays some nutty element. Medium body. Interesting stuff. Full of gentle fruit flavors, not overdone in any way. Seems rather rustic and traditional.
