To learn more about Ramos Pinto, read my article from visiting the wine producer: http://www.disorder.dk/2013/09/11/visiting-ramos-pinto-in-porto/

I tasted this 20 years old tawny at Ramos Pinto in Porto, Portugal.

The colour is where brown and red meets for a beutiful composition.

The aroma is dominated by caramel.

A sharp tannin in the start goes right into a lovely dried fruits taste and with a after taste that not only last longer than the RP10 but is also a bit more complex.

Overall rating 90 / 100

I tasted this 10 year old tawny at Ramos Pinto in Porto, Portugal.

The colour is best described as chestnut, a deep brown with red notes to it.

The aroma is dominated by alcohol and caramel.

The taste comes off with a sharp tannin in the start, a faint note of oak and a soft dried fruit in the after taste, which fades quickly.

Overall rating 88 / 100

The beer is brewed by a SABMiller brewery in Russia, further details was not possible to obtain.

I bought this beer at a local supermarket in Tartu, Estonia. 500 ml bottle with a strength of 5,5% for 1,19 Euro.

A yellow beer with a hint of darkness fills the glass and have a, for me first time to see, brownish yellow fill that we for now call a mysteriously inviting look.

The head structure is light, big and fine bubbles that will stay as a thin layer.

The aroma is a lovely light hint of grain. Taste is on the light going to weak side, but accompanied with the aroma it makes a much surprising experience out of itself.

I must say that this beer turned out much over my expectations, a good beer.

Overall rating is 75 / 100
