0.5L bottle. Pours black with a frothy brown head that lingers with nice lacing. Aromas of coffee, roasted malt, molasses, some prune. Fairly mild flavor profile. Not much sweetness, and goes pretty quickly to the roasted malt character, with mild coffee flavor. Almost nothing in the middle, some mineral notes, then finishes with a long, mellow, dry roasted malt linger. Medium-thin body with a slick mouthfeel and mild, albeit sharp carbonation. Overall, a muted version of guinnes that lacks the mouthfeel of the tap variety in the UK and is fairly unidimensional in emphasizing mellow, roasted malts.

Gregus (192) - Kraków, POLAND - AUG 11, 2014
Puszka; barwa czarna. Piana bujna ale szybko opada do cienkiej warstwy. Aromat delikatnie kawowy, palony. W smaku lekko palone, lekko kwaśne z lekką goryczką.

Fluxing (283) - POLAND - JUL 19, 2014
Warka 15.05.2015. Kolor czarny, nieprzejrzyste. Piana wysoka, szybko opada, pozostawia gruba, betonowa warstwe i lekko oblepia szklo. Prawie w ogole nie pachnie, moze lekko kawowo, ale moze to tez autosugestia. W smaku polwytrawne, lekko slodkawe, palone i kawowe, jednak smak jest zdominowany przez bardzo intensywna suszona sliwke, calosc przypomina kwas chlebowy. W odczuciu gladkie, srednio wysycone. Goryczka wlasciwie nieobecna.
