3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
amber-gold honey color with no head. Aroma is a sweet neutral and mellow honey and touch of sap and grass. Body is medium, oily-watery-syrupy, light carbonation, medium-fine, with little prickle burn. Flavor is a light herbal hay couples with a nectar honey-caramel fusion. Delicious and addicting flavor. Lack of head is a big detractor. Body is lacking in carbonation too, although some is present. Overall, the good flavor makes up for it.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly mahogany umber color with a finger of eggshell foam. Lots of burnt honey, creamy toffee, bitter walnut, cocoa powder and some lingering earthy black tea. Seems a bit young but nice mouthfeel and booze to sweetness ratio is nicely integrated.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very special piwo shared with McTapps. This one offers plums and some other sour fruits with some lactose in the back. Carbo is medium, alcohol definitely tasteable and beside being sick and heavy those fruity moments make this one special. Though, the drinkability is limited therefore I was not that convinced.
