Colour and sight: Dark brown-red. A compact white-yellow, stable and lacing head. Scent: Touches of caramel, mocha and chocolate. Spices such as liquorice and coriander are also present. Flavour: Initially, a very good mouthfeel of alcohol and softness. This is followed by an increasing bitterness, partially from the hop, but also from the roasted malt and chocolate malt. Towards the end a nice balance between bitterness, sour and sweet.

Deep fruits, yeast, oats and biscuit malts on the nose. Dark amber/brown with a massive foam. Big alcohol presence with pleasant caramel, oat, barley and fresh hop notes that dance around the palate. Big complexity with some hidden undertones of herbs, belgian candi syrup, roasted molasses and mocha. Overall, this is really strong, full-bodied, and complex. I’d give this an A+ rating.

Bottle 0.33 l, Carrefour, Wrocław, Poland.
Ciemnobrązowe piwo o obfitej i puszystej ale szybko redukującej się pianie oraz przyjemnym, winnym aromacie ciemnych owoców. W smaku słodowe, słodkawe, owocowe i winne, lekko kwaskowe z łagodnie palonym finiszem.

HammerTroll (691) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 27, 2015
Dark brown color, hazy or cloudy, it’s hard to determine. Big tan head, not a firm one, drops to minimal one. Aroma is dark fruit, caramel, malt and sugar. Taste is same plus plum. Medium to heavy sweetness. Thin to medium body, soft carbonation, sweet fruity finish. Nice enough.
