3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
1l petka bought at the brewery. Hazy dark brown colour, tiny beige head. Aroma of smoked malt. Full-bodied, intensive malty base with good smoke flavours, hints of caramel, toffee, roasted malts and some shy hopy in the finish. The beer is intensively smokey, I would classify it as a smoked. Smooth and creamy texture, probably due to the fine carbonation.
A smoked beer disguised as 18° special - what a lovely surprise from Beroun!

Big thanks to quack-duck for that one. 1l PET bottle. Looks interesting. Beer in the glass deep black, nice head. Sourish aroma. Starts strong, intense malty and quite fruity like beeries. Modest sourish. Reminds me in some ways of a good red wine. Well balanced fruity finish. Interesting beer!

En betryggende grizzly-størrelse (1 l plastflaske) hjemført i Holmens importkoffert: øl nr. 2 på Holmens siste aktivitetsdag i 2014. Brunsvart med højt varig skum. Aroma og smak av kvalitetskaffe kombinert med mørk sjokolade. Håper den bockølen vi setter i dag blir like velsmakende og lettdrikkelig. Time will show.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lahev (diky, Quack-Ducku!): Deep, very deep amber coloured, presumably hazy, sweetish toasty-caramelly nose, a tinge of molasses and vinous fruits underneath; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied, quite soft; chalk in the robust sweetish-roasty finish, followed by a lingering and balancing bitter-malty finish. Good...

Plastic bottle, bought at the brewery. Fruity aroma, hint of sweet caramel and pepper. Hazy dark brown colour. The flavour has a good roasted note, a bit nutty. The finish is drier with some barley bitterness. Starts off good, finishes mediocre.
