Cybuch (52) - Muszyna, POLAND - JUN 12, 2016
Aromat kawowy, jednak mało intensywny. Barwa ciemnobrązowa, prawie czarna, piana przepiękna, kremowa, nie widać nawet pęcherzykůw. W smaku jest lekkie, lekko kwaskowe, delikatnie palone. Goryczka niska, bardzo delikatna, kremowa faktura. Klasyczny, dobry stout, do pełni szczęścia brakuje trochę wyrazistości.

From foamy brown to pitch black as the head settles. Head is creamy, dense and shows very good retention with low lacing. Aroma of soft toasted malts, nuts, milk and vanilla. Taste has a soft toasted malts base, a hint of milk coffee, vanilla and a slight dark fruit note. Perfect balance between sweet and bitter notes, with none standing out. Light to medium body with almost no crispness, very smooth and easy but still nicely creamy. A perfectly crafted, easy and highly enjoyable stout that just lacks a bit in depth.

Love everything about this, the creamy taste, texture right to the last drop. Looks good, tastes good, it is good. Would change anything. Donít go for drinks with little carbonation but this is enjoyable.

Aromat: Lekko kawowy, słodowy, palone słody, trochę coli, mało intensywny Wygląd: Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste, gęsta, trwała, drobnobańkowa, beżowa piana, ładny lacing Smak: na pierwszym planie paloność, cola, ale bez słodyczy, strasznie wodniste, minimalna palona goryczka Podniebienie: niskie nagazowanie, niska pełnia, lekkie, pijalne, lekko kremowe Podsumowanie: ot, poprawne piwo, przy tym bardzo przeciętne

Nice, commercial stout. Decent stout-like aroma with some caramel and chocolate. Mild, light taste and great appearance thanks to the nitro widget.

Ritzn (219) - Bavaria, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2016
Deep black with well lasting light brown head. Aroma is roast, coffee and milk. Maybe some mint as well. Taste is well rounded coffee bitterness some honey milk sweetness. Nice bubbly milky mouthfeel and rather short coffee milky finish. Overall nice and well rounded but not the kind of beer i adore.

Dry, somewhat bitter, roasted, mellow to flat. Tastes better in a dark, Irish pub...
