Grzesiek79 (3255) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 7, 2014
ladne opakowanie, to przede wszystkim stylowa etykieta nawiazujaca do owczesnego piwa. Stara receptura dajes sie tu zauwazyc przede wszystkim juz po pierwszym lyku. Piwo jest tresciwe gozkie i jakby lekko stechle pachnie zarowno mokra wilgotna scierka jak i podsuszonymi morelami. Kolor ciemno bursztynowy, piwo o skromnej pianie. Delikatnie wysycone. slodowosc uboga ale suszona trawa daje znac w koncowce pozostawiajac dlugi wytrawny finisz. Calkiem inne piwo niz wiekszosc ESA

DulÁor maltado e caramelado, saboroso. Amargor pungente, amadeirado, elegante. Equilibra bem o dulÁor. ABV de 7% presente no paladar, mas sem agredir nem ocultar nenhuma nuance, pelo contrŠrio, agregando mais personalidade. Leve acidez ajuda a balancear o fim da cerveja.180 s

ALLOVATE (2436) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 1, 2014
5 on 5 for appearance. A radiant, fiery chestnut with a dense and tight, off-white foam that lasts and weaves a messy, tick lace. Rather dusty, plummy, oaken nose with inklings of rust, butterscotch, smoked pork hock, spicy higher alcohol and leather. Quite soft, sweet and toffeeish in the mouth. Alcohol kicks like a mule and warms up the sweet, nutty caramel finish. Light oak and cedar notes, blood and rust with a plummy backdrop. Defined woody, nutty notes over throw any nuance of hops. Pretty boring drinking really. I canít get excited about this one. Least it looked good. (50cL, BB 31/12/16, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)
