Way too sweet for me. That makes it hard to drink. Thats the main disadvantage. On other hand, it’s very complex. Sugary, raisiny, dark-fruity, havy flavours. Very full body. Not my style though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very dark brown beer with a medium and yelloiwsh beige head. The nose of dry wood, toffee, sweet and red berries, some chocolate and smoke. Taste with same elements that were in the aroma, some toffee, fresh wood, chocolate, low bitterness, also hint of smoke in the end. Medium bodied, quite smooth and nice to drink. Lots of elements and nothing is bothering but still not very inspirating. The good beer, anyway.

Aroma of sweet malts, caramel, dark fruits, raisins, some figs. Flavour is malty caramel sweetness, slight candy sugar, some dark fruits. Manages to hide its alcohol well.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Setka Pub, Poznań. Pours slightly hazy dark ruby and brown with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and fruit, with notes of hops. Sweet, fruity flavour, with notes of malt, lozenges and alcohol. Bitter, metallic aftertaste. Rather disturbing but drinkable. My rating #2400.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pour is a deep dark crimson, a bit hazy, thin off-white head which diminishes quickly. Smell is sweet fruit, toffee, caramel, butterscotch. Taste has a good caramel sweetness, some cherry and plum flavor, and a surprising hop bitterness. Definitely has some alcohol kick on the way down. Decent wee heavy, I think the taste may catch up to the nose as it ages.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler to pint glass pours rich dark brown with medium head. Taste is malt, caramel and more malt. Smooth and rich with just a hint of hop at the end and goes down entirely too easily. Well worth having.
