bierkoning (13813) - La Tropica/Doarp, - OCT 30, 2007
Bottle from Tbone_. Dark brown color. Milk chocolate aroma with some vegetable notes. Grainy flavor with cacao and milk chocolate. Caramel. Thin, not an entirely clean mouthfeel, but not unpleasant.

Hermod (8516) - Vantaa, FINLAND - AUG 29, 2015
[email protected] Pörgu. Dark brown, thin brown head. Ripe banana, peppery notes, malts. Flavor has sweetness, ripe banana and licorice. Weird but surprisingly drinkable.

djoeye (5414) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2015
Look; fawn head and rose-brown clear body. Aroma; potent dark malts, fruits, leaves, grass. Taste; brown malts, plum, almond, chocolate, raisin, dusty hops, grass, leaves - leading to a soft malty fruity slightly dry finish. Fine texture and soft carbonation. Easy and nice. Among the better baltics. [50cl brown bottle 5.6%abv BB18-08-2015 [email protected]ärnu [email protected]]

clear dark brown liquid with frothy head. Aroma: hay, roasty, caramel, Taste: medium sweetness, medium bitterness, smoky. Palate: light body, creamy, average carbonation, astringent,

Moebbels (835) - FINLAND - JUN 1, 2014
Pours a very dark mahogany body that you still can see through. The light brown head settles down to a thin even layer. Nose has coffee, chokolate and rosted malts. Taste starts off sweetly and ends in a smooth, dry and roasty finish. Carbonation and mouthfeel ar just above medium. Overall a decent brew, a little simple but quite drinkable.

MadRobin (2989) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - MAR 12, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2014 Poured from 500 ml bottle in Pühajärve, Estonia. Clear, dark cola brown with a small khaki head and fair lacing. Aroma of brown sugar, sweet malt, caramel, raisins and lingonberries. Taste of sweet rum, raisins, sweet cherry, caramel, lingonberries, brown sugar, nuts and a bit of earthy hops. Medium body and low/medium carbonization. This is a sweet dunkel--as are most Estonian tumes. But the fruitiness and mild hop finish add a nice complexity. It’s still a bit sweet for my taste, but it’s interesting and certainly a welcome change. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

visionthing (5600) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 26, 2013
50cl bottle from Tallinna Kaubamaja. Pours clear copper with a minimal white head. Aroma of malt and caramel with notes of dark fruits. Reminds me a bit of kvass. Quite sweet and malty with a light bitterness in the finish. A bit watery and quite boring, but drinkable enough. (2013-11-10)
