UPDATED: MAY 4, 2015 330ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn) (6:4:6:4:13=3.3)Marduk (8622) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAY 7, 2015
Nice roasty aroma. Pleasantly dark, nice tan head. Pleasant roasty taste. Nicely drinkable stout. Roasty. Finish has a bit of coffee. 3.3 probably an under-rate but nothing’s saying wow.
Rerate: 330ml bottle (Hopner, Tallinn, meet the brewer tap takeover) (7.4:7:4:14=3.5)
Lovely rich malty aroma, quite soy-like. Taste beautifully rich. Rich dark roast. Lovely full palate, but not heavy at all. Tons of bitter hops in the finish. Excellent stout. 5% - fantastic. Rerates are good, at least when they’re as good as this. Yummy stout - could session.
330ml bottle. Very dark brown, almost black color. Mellow roast, chocolate, malty, touch of yeast, sweet notes in aroma. Roasted malts, chocolate, bit ashy, milky, straw in taste. Nice milky roast in aftertaste. Soft carbonation. Nice smooth palate. Nice one. High drinkability. VamboladeTolly (2184) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JUN 4, 2015

Zearte kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt koffie, chocolade, herfstfruit. Smaakt bitterzoet, koffie, chocolade, rijp fruit. Ites bittere afdronk, tikkeltje dun. adasko (2233) - Poznan, POLAND - APR 8, 2016
Tap na BGM. Dość klasyczny dry stout. Wodnisty, dość pustawy w smaku. Kawowy cierpki aromat. Bez fajerwerków, ale solidny reprezentant stylu. MD11 (115) - - NOV 17, 2017
Bevuta in bottiglia. Ottimo aspetto nera con bella schiuma color noce. Al naso le note di tostato caffè e nocciola non sono molto spiccate ma si sentono. In bocca ben equilibrata si sente bene il Malto tostato con un finale leggermente secco ma di buona bevuta. minihame2 (790) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 16, 2012
Bottle. Completely black with a small tan head. Nice aroma with malts and some coffee. Mouthfeel is soft with minimal carbonation. Taste begins like your usual stout and then ends up with nice coffee/espresso finish. Very drinkable stout. olsvammel (7313) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 1, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Smell of chocolate, hard bread, also a bit funky aroma, same as their pale ale. Similar taste. I miss the roasted coffee notes, this was more like a porter.
