The first tastes are boozy, but also chocolate, bitter, licqour, little smokey, some ruby red, but the taste develops and after half a bottle (room temp, at home), it kicks in properly: wow. This is amazing. It seemed out of balance. But then it somehow seems to be together. ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)

Przylus (73) - Warszawa, POLAND - DEC 27, 2014
W aromacie: winogrona, cognac, bandaże, przejrzałe jabłko, świeże (mokre) orzechy włoskie, delikatnie ziołowe. Barwa ciemnobrunatna. klarowne. Piana niska, mydlana. W smaku najpierw orzech włoski i cognac. Pomimo niewielkiego pierwszego łyka, duże rozgrzanie z tyłu głowy. Gładkie. Dobrze schowany, ale i tak wyczuwalny szlachetny alkohol. Idące w stronę pijalnego, co może być niebezpieczne. Goryczka średnia, raczej nieprzyjemna.

mmahut (1121) - CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle. Black body with almost no, but very little head. Aroma has a pear marmalade character, woody, light roasty. From the aroma, one would tell the taste will be sweet as hell, but it is not. It has a nice roasty bitterness, little bit earthy after taste. Sweetness reminds of ripped fruits, raisins. Body is full, low carbonation.
