Bottle brought from Belgium by a colleague at work... This was a mild bock - drinkable, but forgettable...

75cl bottle @ Midlands Tasting Group Aug 14, at Richie’s Hop Palace. Brought by me, from Vanuxeem. Pours dark brown with off-white head. Light malty caramel aroma, taste is disappointingly weak malts, nuts and caramel. Tempted to re-rate from a fresh bottle.

Nogal een flets biertje vond ik. Niet echt een meerwaarde in het bierlandschap.

Swaroga (1316) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 1, 2014
Butelka 75cl. OCZY : piwo ma przejrzysty, ciemnobrązowy kolor i malutką piane. NOS : w zapachu dominuje karmel i ciemne owoce. Tak naprawdę to ma podobny zapach do cherry coke z dodatkiem whisky. USTA : całkiem mocno gazowane. Oleiste ale nie jest mocno nasycone. Nie jest też kompletnie wodniste. Piwo jest słodkie ale bez przesady. Staje się delikatnie kwaśne, podobnie do goździków. Przy końcu ta kwaśność staje się delikatnie cierpka. Piwo jest również delikatnie gorzkie o nutach palonego karmelu i ziół. ODCZUCIA : dobrze skomponowane i przyjemne w piciu. Jedynie w posmaku irytuje ta cierpkość, która po kilku łykach przypomina coraz bardziej nudny metal. OCENA : smak : 6/10 pijalność : 6/10

Catch up rating . A dark copper, brown beer with a lively head that settles into a small skin of white foam. Smell is malt , nuts and molasses. Taste is malty, but subdued. There is some fruit taste. Bitterness is low and body is a bit watery, but this makes it lighter.
