Deep amber pour with a little bit of light sweetness and a touch of toffee as well. Sweet and caramelly. There is a little bit of sweet fruit and maybe a touch of light tartness. Medium-bodied and quite tasty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2013 Draught (Drink Bar, Tallinn)
Fairly rich sweet caramelly aroma, and pretty roasty too. Some dry dustiness too, quite dense and heady. Deep brown, healthy tan head that takes a long time to settle to just a ring. More a dunkel than a schwartz in look. Crisp carbonation, smooth sweet body. Lovely smooth sweet roasty taste - caramelly. Hops very gently, but pleasant. Finish pleasantly hoppy, very fresh buddy hops. Full and fresh - good one Sillamae - make this more often!
Rerate: Tap-to-Bottle (Elav 6lu, Maardu) (6:4:7:4:14=3.5)
Not quite so expressive an aroma, some nice caramel, something a little stale. However, it’s lovely in the mouth, a real rich roast, some burnt toasty corners. Maybe to "light" - it’s super quaffable and easily sessionable, not saying it’s 5.8 at all. Good stuff, no doubt.

This rare beer comes in huge magnificent 3l bottles. It pours dark brown and hazy.
It is velvetty soflty malty, has earthy, roasty flavours, is immensly complex, and is very good. Highly recommended!
