rami_pl (361) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 6, 2015
Butelka, warka do 17-08-15 (czyli juz dosc ulozona chyba? nie ma daty rozlewu, a nie wiem, ile daja waznosci). Bardzo ladna piana, wysoka, acru, drobna. Niestety bardzo szybko sie redukuje do cienkiego korzuska, za to ladnie brudzi szklo. Samo piwo bardzo rubinowe, fajny kolor. przejrzyste. Aromat to glownie kwasne owoce - wisnie, te okolice. Czuc tez nieco przyprawowosci i korzennosci. troche rodzynek. Zaskakujaco malo nut slodowych w aromacie - dopiero po ogrzaniu, pojawiaja sie nuty zbozowe, sliwkowe, kandyzowanych jakichs rzeczy, moze troche cukru trzcinowego i krowek. W smaku wlasciwie analogicznie do aromatu, przy czym dziwny efekt wystepuje - przy zimnym posmaki owocowe sa w kwaskowata strone, im cieplej, tym bardziej w slodka strone. malo zlozony niestety. dosc nisko wysycony jak na quadrupla, generalnie raczej wodnisty niz tresciwy, nieco lepki w konsystencji. ALkohol bardzo dobrze ukryty. TO dobre piwo, ale do najlepszych w stylu nie ma startu.

Cor castanho brilhante, aroma fortíssimo, alcoólico, lembrando acetona, paladar adocicado, amargo e alcoólico. Deliciosa!!!

nihtila (1489) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 25, 2015
24.12.2014. Sweet, syrupy aroma. Taste has dark fruits, syrupy, alcohol pushes through a bit. Nice fruits in taste but feels too simple and strong.
