Poured from bottle, darker brown with medium tan head. Malty sweet nose, dried fruits, somewhat balanced taste. Nice medium bodied beer with a kind of sticky texture. Fairly enjoyable, but overpriced for a 6 pack.

adasko (874) - Poznan, POLAND - MAY 20, 2015
Aromat kakaowy, niemal parterowy. Barwa ciemnej miedzi, prawie brunatna. Ładny lacing, kiepska piana. W smaku trochę kakao, trochę słodyczy. W posmaku wchodzi lekka paloność i goryczka. W odczuciu troszkę zbyt nasycone, ale nadal gładkie i smukłe, świetne piwo.

Deep ruby red with dense off-white head. Aroma is nutty, caramel, figs, slight notes of hard gingerbread. Taste is medium sweet toffee, nuts, light to medium bitterness with a roasted note. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Not a lot of hops but a very solid brown ale.

12 ounce bottle into signature tulip glass, bottled on 10/15/2014. Pours crystal clear dark reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, toast, dark bread, molasses, light dark fruit, herbal, grass, light pine, and roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted/bready malt and moderate earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, toast, dark bread, molasses, light dark fruit, herbal, grass, pine, and roast/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of herbal/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, molasses, herbal, grass, light pine, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted/bready malt and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy, and lightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome hoppy brown ale style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted/bready malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

Very nice brown ale. Not as strong as expected, but nice sweet aroma with good mouth feel and balanced taste. Hops are subtle but provide a tempering of the sweetness.
