Has a huge, froth, bubbly head, with a clear brown color, in which ember hints shine through. Smells of fresh, skunky yeast with sweeter, cane sugary, notes of malt, as well as rustic bread. Tastes much dryer, and more balanced than the aromas revealed. Starts bready, accompanied by semi-dry, slightly bitter hops, which stay in the background though, to allow the malts to unfold in all its beauty. Drinks very smooth and turns a little more sweeter, in a toffeish way, without loosing its bready, slightly toasted foundation. Finishes crisp, very balanced, with hops and malts standing in perfect balance to each other.

Post Borefts Tasting, Tulip Hotel Room 118. Bright clear amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and a little dry. Touch of dry cream in the malts. Vibrant tangy toffee! Little dried fruits. Light semi dry finish. Nice.

On tap @ Brauerei im Füchschen. Clear orange/copper with a small off-white head and good/heavy lacing. Aroma is mineral with toffee notes and toasted cereals. Taste is more toffee forward with toasted malt, earthy notes and light bitterness. Medium body. Light carbonation. Lingering mineral finish. Decent Altbier. Tasty but not too much. Drinkable but not too much. Good balance.

Swaroga (1755) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 5, 2014
Butelka 50cl. OCZY : piwo ma kolor czerwonej miedzi ze złotymi odcieniami. Piana jest niewielka o kolorze białym. NOS : na pierwszy niuch wyczuwam aromaty czerstwego ciemnego chleba, metalu, ciemnego miodu. Po wstrząśnięciu nuty słodowe się uwypuklają do tego dochodzą nuty kwiatowe. Ogólnie zapachy są średnio intensywne. USTA : średnio gazowane piwo o tłustej teksturze i wodnistej konsystencji. Piwo jest subtelne. Gdyby nie bardzo ciekawa gorzkość i ziołowa cierpkość, która przypomina troszeczkę gałkę muszkatową, czarny pieprz mielony, ziele angielskie ale i przypaloną skórkę od wiejskiego chleba to piwo byłoby jednowymiarowe. Całe szczęście te ostatnie pozostają na długo w posmaku. Słodycz przypomina ciemny miód. ODCZUCIA : piwo jest moim pierwszym w tym dniu i zaskakująco satysfakcjonującym. Można spokojnie takie piwko pić kuflami i się nie znudzić. OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 9/10 styl : +1

330 cl. bottle sampled @ Borefts 2014 Hotel Room tasting. Thank you! Clear golden, little white head. Caramel, ginger, spice, floral, bitter nose. Taste is bitter biscuit, malty, floral, sugar, hay. Biscuit body, lager feel. Okay but for a beer with a score this high…. Maybe I need it to taste locally?
