Butelka, warka do kwietnia 2016, wiec sporo poczekala butelka na wypicie. Przejrzyste, ciemnobrazowe z rubinowymi przeblyskami, z nieimponujaca piana. Aromaty karmelowe, swiezych (wisnie) i suszonych (rodzynki, figi, sliwki) owocow. Do tego tez miod czy melasa, cos slodkiego bardzo. Slady kakao a moze gorzkiej czekolady. Slady przyprawowosci (Cynamon?). W smaku wszystko to bardzo ladnie odczuwalne, w slodka acz niemeczaca strone. alkohol bardzo skutecznie ukryty. Zaskakujaco lekkie odczucie w ustach, nie az tak duzo ciala, brak syropowych odczuc. Wysycenie jak na styl dosc niskie. Goryczka tez niewysoka, ale odczuwalna. Klasa piwo.

12/1/2008 9:59:58 AM Bottle from Cracked Kettle. Dark reddish brown. Fuzzy head. Sweet, fruity nose. Warm, sweet, caramel flavour. A wide variety of different flavours really, including toffee, nuts and dark fruits, definitely cherry and plums. Then a tad of sourness in the finish. Nice.

Marrón oscura, aspecto cremoso. Escasa espuma de tono amarillento. Aroma de agradable licor. Que se prolonga en la boca. Potente, malta tostada, caramelo, toque de chocolate y sobre todo sensación de copazo

Fatehunter (2125) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Pours a half finger of head on a brown body. The aroma is a musty barn smell and powdered cocoa mix. The taste is grainy sweet with a mild bitterness. The texture is crisp. It alright, the alcohol content hides pretty well.
