Opaque dark brown beer, good pale tan head. Palate is dry and crisp. Mellow dark malt, touch of lactose and roast. Smooth piney hops and a tiny bit of citrus. Finishes dry with a mildly bitter aftertaste of malt roast and hops.

Bottle shared at the Cafe Abseits tasting during the Bamberg Excursion. Cheers to Fergus for this one! Pours deep brown with a foamy tan head. Some earthy bitterness, charred malts, cocoa, burnt grass. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly resinous on the finish, with more burnt malts, charred toast, grass. Good stuff.

Cask conditioned at Stratford upon Avon Beer Festival ’15. Black with cream head. There is a deep, dark roasted, full palate to the malts, charcoal hints with crispy toast then a strong, bittering chocolate note. Amongst all of this malty stuff going on there is a leafy, grassy, bittering hop character. Loads going on but not really that confusing. I liked this a lot and my beer of this Festival.

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.
