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, thatís all.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle kindly shared by Finn. Good looking with a decent fawn-coloured head, spotty lacing down the glassware, and a dark brown coloured body with a rustic glint. Mixed aroma of dark fruits and dark malts. Brown and black malts upfront, caramel and chocolate, joined by bitter dark fruit and a nice little roastiness to the finish. Quite easy to drink. Clean in the mouth. Like it (TromsÝ 10.12.2014).
