TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 25, 2012
Bottled 500ml (Stockmann Tallinn, BB 05/2012)
Deep ruby color, small beige head. Toasted coffeish and caramelly aroma with some diacetyl. Medium-bodied. Sweetish, chocolaty flavor. Toasted notes, light tartness in the aftertaste. Not much diacetyl in flavor. Aftertaste has caramel and some bitterness. Good German-style dunkel. One of the best Latvian beers I’ve had (the bar is not very high with Latvian beers).
