2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark brown, almost black color. Nice head at first, thinner head stays for some time. Aroma is not very intensive. Hints of roasted malts and very subtle alcohol. Taste: espresso, roasted malts, in the end quick hints of bitterness that dissapear quickly. There is also noticable iron in the background, once the bitternes starts to dissapear. Overall: not really good or bad. You can find a lot better beer, but you can find also a lot worse.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Raster messy stale aroma, clearly a nice rich roast. Nice and dark, but poured a bit fizzy, tan head didn’t last very long. In the mouth, it’s a lot more coherent than the aroma. Palate is a little watery considering, perhaps the fizziness doesn’t aid that. Roast is deep and full, quite burnt, but not ashy. Really comes alive in the finnish, the roast fills the mouth, very nice. Not full enough, but still a nice drinker.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle; 5%. Dark body, small head. Smooth aroma with mild roast and chocolate. Sweet and roasty taste. Lively carbonation. Closer to regular "stouts" than "dry stouts" IMO. Quite good but a design like that suggests a heavy and big beer which it’s not.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Black, clear. Roasted malts, espresso on nose. Body a bit thinnish, but flavourful. Bitter, with a bit of green/woody yeasty hop remains. Coffee, and lots of dry roasted malts- produces a slight hint of salty licorice. Flavourful, but a bit too dry/thin/hard for me. And the greeny things don’t work.
