Grzesiek79 (3545) - Radom, POLAND - APR 2, 2013
Bardzo smaczne i ładne piwo, zarówno od strony etykiety, pałakowej butelce ale również piwa. Piana średnia ale trwała, kolor ciemno bursztynowo-czerwony, z przewagą bordowych odcieni jednak. Karmelowy przypalony cukier miesza się z aromatem tofii i lekkiej goryczce. Finisz goryczkowy lecz stonowany, zdecydowanie dominują tu nuty słodowe, czyli tak jak być powinno.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2013 Bottle shared by Cuso, many thanks. Aroma strong caramel, dark honey, raisin. sweet . Clear brown colour. Taste really sweet caramel, not too much flavour. Nuts. Quite single-dimensional and straightforward. Finish is warm caramel alcohol. Simple, strong, but no objections. 7 3 6 3 11

Rerate. Bottle. Aroma lightly malty, very mild. Clear dark brown colour. Taste is empty, ambiguous sweetness, otherwise no flavour. Finish nonexistent, light body.

Flip-top 50cl bottle from Bierland, pours deep dark brown with a beige head, malty nose with hints of roasted prune and milk chocolate, rich bodied with burnt caramel, roast malt, touches of treacle and chocolate, a bitter hop edge to balance the demerara sweetness, and a bit of dark dried fruit. Very nice.

50cl Bottle from a kiosk in Friedrichshain, Berlin. Clear deep amber colour, off-white head. Aroma of toffee, light fudge, light toast and a little fruity. Flavour is sweet, toffee, light bitter, light floral, but as with their Original Festbier also quite a nasty metallic finish. Medium-bodied.
