330mL bottle from Beer Cartel.
Thick, pitch black sump oil liquid with a creamy orange-brown head hanging around.
Nose is quite intense - coffee, dark bitter chocolate, orangey piney earthy sort of hops, charred nutty sort of malt.
Body is slick, rich yet holds its weight very well - doesn’t feel 10%! - very long on the finish, sticky.
Oozy body - inky sort of dark fruits beneath layers of dark roasty coffee, bitter cocoa, burnt caramels, charred ends.
A formidable brew - very smooth, perhaps not as big as I was expecting to be a bit picky - it’s damn good overall.

Tap. Fajny aromat palony i kawowy, lekko czuć toffee. Smak słodki, lekko wytrawny. W smaku kawa, gorzka czekolada, toffee. Fajna gesta faktura. Niestety po ogrzaniu wychodzi trochę alkoholu w charakterze spirytusowym.
