3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2oz Bottle. The pour was a muddy dark brown with a nice reddish hue around the edges and an average (1-2 finger) tan creamy head that had great retention pretty much lasting throughout, thus creating some excellent sheets of sticky lacing.
The aroma starts with a roasted sweet bread malt and moves on with an earthy somewhat leathery yeast. In the back ground I sensed notes of milk chocolate, molasses, brown sugar, some dark fruit (raisons and figs), a hint of smoke and a mild winey alcohol presence.
The taste started with a nice malty sweetness and had hints of chocolate and brown sugar, progressing with a good bit of dark fruit and a slight alcohol finish. The flavor had a decent duration following the swallow with a sweet fruity taste fading as a mild creamy chocolate alcohol flavor settled on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was a strong medium in body with an extremely smooth and creamy texture and an almost flat carbonation.
Overall this was an exquisite tasting brew, one that possessed a nice sweet malty taste with a really intense creamy feel. This hid the moderately high ABV extremely well and made a pleasure to consume...

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Butelka 0,33 l. Zawartość alkoholu 6,5%.
W aromacie karmel, paloność, a także nuty przyprawowe.
Barwa ciemnobrązowa, lekko zamglona. Piana beżowa, z początku obfita, dość szybko opadła do cienkiej warstwy, ale pozostała już taka do końca.
W smaku umiarkowanie słodkie. Wyczuwalny karmel, w tle suszone owoce, nuty przypraw.
Na finiszu lekko gorzkie. Wysycenie średnie.

Bottle looks impressive - that´s why I bought it. Color is dark brown and you can even see all the CO2 bubbles. Head is nice and strong. For me the taste is slightly disappointing. Was expecting something with more profound and long lasting taste. This is just slightly ordinary dubbel.
