4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Poured cloudy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex earthy hop and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of long duration. This is a standout beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2013 Tap (Pudel Bar, Tallinn) (5:4:4:3:9=2.5)
Massively sticky stodgy aroma. Almondy (german bock-like) grains. Sticky and sweet. Resiny stickiness too. Dirty bitterness in the finish. Too sweet and sticky. Heady, covers the alcohol only by overpowering it. Very disappointing. I pulled a pretty ugly face with every mouthful. Yes, even worse than normal!
Rerate: Tap (Pudel Baar, Tallinn) (5:4:6:3:12=3.0)
Still cloudy, and still has a distinctively plasticky aroma that I associate with heller bocks. Smooth palate, not so sticky. Full malty body, but the hops smother that, fruity, fleshy fruits (that’s in part the malt sweetness). No ugly faces this time. Not my style, but certainly adequate. Useful rerate.
Rerate: 330ml bottle (?, Tallinn) BB201503, Drunk201312 (6:4:6:4:13=3.3)
Poured much clearer - just a haze. Orangy straw, tight off-white head. Still getting that bocky-malt almond aroma, but not as much as before. Not quite so plasticky. For it’s strength, quite light in the mouth, pleasant carbonation. Again, that heller-bock maltiness in the retronasals. Simple malty body follows, but that’s drowned in the hops. Not quite as fruity as before, but this is a month older, maybe the hops are fading? Tingly bitterness, a touch fatty too in the finish. Covers the alcohol more subtly, definitely an improvement. Worth the re-rerate.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Mikkeller & Friends, pours a cloudy orange with a small beige head. Aroma of resinous hops, dry caramel malts, and tropical fruits. Flavour of dry resinous hops, dry caramel malts, and some dry tropical fruity notes. Very rich and full-bodied, with dry fruity and resinous hop notes dominating. Excellent stuff.
