3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec)
Black, a bit watery loose head. Soft sweet roast aroma. Some sharpness - aggressive hops. Simple malts, not fermented enough, mashy and a bit messy. Hops decent, but not shining. Meh. A slightly hop-forward dark beer, that’s all.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black with tan lasting head. Aroma dominated by sweet tropical fruits and apples, followed by some roasted malts, which however get intro the front row in the taste - roast, sunflower seeds and some coffee, followed by light/medium citrus bitterness and ashy aftertaste. Smells great but the taste could’ve been more complex and bitter.
