Czarne piwo o obfitej ale nietrwałej pianie. Aromat palonych ziaren niezbyt intensywny. W smaku wyczuwalne palone ziarna, trochę gorzkiej czekolady. Całość dosyć łagodna.

Fluxing (266) - POLAND - JUL 4, 2014
Kolor czarny, rubinowe refleksy pod swiatlo, klarowne. Piana wysoka, szybko opada, zostawia gruba warstwe, slabo oblepia szklo. W zapachu poczatkowo bardzo intensywna palonosc, a nawet wedzonosc, ale z czasem ujawnia sie takze mokry karton i kiszona kapusta. W smaku intensywnie palone, kawowe i lekko karmelowe, lekka kwasnosc, wlasciwie nic wiecej sie nie dzieje, ale przynajmniej wady obecne w aromacie sa niewyczuwalne w smaku. Odczucie w ustach wodniste, ale jednoczesnie gladkie i aksamitne. Goryczka niska, ale mocno sciagajaca, lekko ziolowa. Wysycenie niskie.

maekchu (1982) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 30, 2014
Can from local Yamaya store. Light chocolate roasty nose, graham crackers, burnt matches. Black, with a smooth creamy off-white head. Very mild dark roast initial, gentle bittering in mid palate, lightly metallic, too. Thin and a bit watery. Flavors are much like the aroma. The nitro thing waters it all down too much.

Arek (24) - Zielona Góra, POLAND - JUN 29, 2014

GuideDogSaint (114) - Epsom, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2014
440ml can from Carrefour, Xintiandi, Changchun. Pors almost black with a thin beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste a little grassy and a little sweet but with chocolate too. Overall pretty good, a decent find in China.

ElDesmadre (1496) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle. Aroma of caramel, grain and grass, with marginal chocolate notes. The taste is more stout-like, with the chocolate part coming to the front, although I miss the roast. Also, an obnoxious metallic note appears. Watery, bland, light bitter. Drinkable for sure but why bother?
