(draught) clear deep ruby-brown colour with creamy beige head. aroma of melted butter and toasted malts, with a light hint of cherry stones, some sugar icing and nettles. flavour is mostly roasted malts, cherries and oak, with more butter, some vanilla, coconut, raisins and a light-bitter herbal-hoppy finish. medium- to heavy-bodied with average carbonation.

PlutonowyMan (85) - POLAND - APR 12, 2015
Kolor czarny, po prostu czarny. Piana mega pot??na, be?owa, z drobnymi i ogromnymi oczami, d?ugo pozostaje w szkle. Aromat kawy, czekolady, karmelu lekko przypalonego i kwa?nych wi?ni. Ka?dy ?yk, na pocz?tku przynosi wytrawne, winne akcenty, które od razu s? skontrowane s?odkim, przypalonym karmelem, kaw? i czekolad?. Ko?cówka zawsze bogata w kwa?ne wi?nie i goryczk? charakterystyczn? dla skórki grapefruitowej. Nasycenie ?rednie, goryczka troch? zalegaj?ca i ?ci?gaj?ca, alkohol ?wietnie ukryty i ?wietnie znieczula. W Dead Man’s Hand "kwas" nie do ko?ca wspó?gra z reszt? smaków, jest go mo?e troch? za du?o, jest troch? tak, jakby pi? piwo zmieszane z czerwonym, wytrawnym winem, przy czym ten mix nie jest do ko?ca jednorodny. Gdybym mia? opisa? to piwo w kilku s?owach na pewno by?o by to: wytrawne, kwa?ne wino, kawa, skórka z grapefruita. Polecam.

mjs (5073) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 11, 2015
(Bottle, 0,33 l, at HBF2015) The beer poured black. Its head was medium sized and lightly briwb. Aroma had wood, vineousness and burnt malts. Palate was full bodied and dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were wood, vineousness, sweetness, liquorice, vanilla and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty, woody and bitter. A rather nice but the finish a little bit too boozy.

Vaiz (3739) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 1, 2015
Bottle at home. Black pour, thick tan head. Aroma is funky, roasted, earthy, some bready yeast, a hint of alcohol, wine and licorice. Flavor is quite bitter, a hint of sourness, smooth, thick bodied and well balanced. Impressive brew.
