3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 oz can poured into a nonic pint glass. I had to salvage this one after it fell and sprung a leak - we’ll see how it’s held up...
A: Pours a orange copper color with moderate clarity. The head is a one finger heavy cream shade. In true nitro-can fashion, it retains beautifully with a wondrous texture.
S: Not as muted as I come to expect from the serving style. There are lots of dark fruits, some lighter fruits, chocolate, caramel, cream, and even a touch of hops.
T: The flavor profile introduces both a smoky and even a leathery dimension to things. The mustiness works pretty well with its fruity, caramel-laden flavor profile. A hint of leafy, herbal hops really finish things well. Surprisingly, it even has a bit of depth to it.
M: A bit on the watery side, as expected. Despite that, there’s a good mixture of creaminess and crisp, palate-clearing dryness. The lack of carbonation fits the mouthfeel qualities well.
O: This would make a good everyday drinker. It’s definitely the most interesting nitro-can beer I’ve ever had before. I wouldn’t touch the bottles, however.

Aroma is sweetish with caramel, malts and nuts. Medium carbonation. Taste follows the nose. Light sweetness. Toffee, nuts and biscuits. Almost no bitterness around. If you are into sweet biscuits and Tea this is perfect.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Piwo o ładnej bursztynowej barwie. Piana opada dość szybko i zostaje z niej niewielki, utrzymujący się pierścień. Bardzo ładny aromat owoców (głównie brzoskwinie i rodzynki). W smaku wyczuwalne delikatne palone nuty, karmel i głównie owoce. Samo piwo wydaje się dość lekkie i przyjemne. Goryczka niska, Wysycenie średnie.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. An almost clear one, copper colored and with a small, off-white head. The aroma is quite malty, in a nice way, with some toffee and prunes. Not much hoppyness kicking in. It’s smooth, full-bodied and semi-sweet on the palate, wtih roasted notes, toffee, prunes, raisins and some bitterness in the flavor. Long finish on the malty side, with quite a lot of dried fruits. Decent indeed, but a tad boring I think. 150711
