Beneath the cool facade of the warrior, a red-hot flame of intensity, determination and, yes, anger burns. So it is with this unpredictable Brown Ale: fleeting malty sweetness and warmth hide complexity, a barely controlled bitterness, and, naturally, a bit of an angry edge. You’ve really got yourself into a situation now. "Anger is energy. Use it, then let it go." Kampai!

Po pierwsze to chyba najbardziej brązowe piwo jakie widziałem. Pachnie słodko, takie prażono-karmelowo-słodowe. Trochę w zapachu jest chmielowości, lekko cytrus, bardziej moim zdaniem w stronę ziemno-ziołową. W smaku jest słodowość, karmel, ale nie w dużym stopniu, bo piwo raczej wytrawne i przez to chmielowość i goryczka dominują. A chmielowość niemała, w smaku bardziej balans przesunięty w kierunku owocowej chmielowości. Goryczka dobra, lekko ściąga policzki i dziąsła, ale nie męczy. Piwo zbalansowane to nie jest, zdecydowanie bardziej chmielowe niż słodowe, ale jest dobrze.

Tap @ Pudel bar. Pours a hazy coke-like brown with no head to speak of. Raspberry and cherry with some fruity sweetness. Malty with licorice, herbs and fruit. Medium body withba sticky palate. The beer got quite warm before I got to it but I’m not at all disappointed. A surprisingly complex brown ale.
