Dark chocolate & cacao base with some vanilla sweetness that is supplemented from the middle by the tawny barrel elements with hints of coffee. Transitions to a firm umami taste at the end.

Wow, these Estonians sure can brew! Silky smooth base of dark chocolate & cacao with elements of sweet fruit mince over the top & a bit of roasted malt coming in around the edges at the end that fades to a hint of umami. Bloody fantastic. More please! :)

Busy but smooth, with lots of passionfruit, orange & guava as advertised with a bit of sherberty bubbles on the tongue over a thin body with hints of pine dankness & a slightly bitter end note. Good fun & a fruity wake up but may not suit everyone :)

Sweet Christmas dried fruit over the top (but not in your face) with hints of bourbon & wood over a gentle dark chocolate base plus some molasses that all finishes very slightly smokey. We're loving this one!

Not very hazy, slightly fruity, rind bitterness from last 2/3rds to the end. Not bad but not good & nothing special to talk about. There are better hazy pales out there.
