3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice looking bottle and label, seems strange to put it in clear glass bottle.I hope it is not sun-struck.
Pours Amber, halcyon, and unclouded. Small ,dense ivory coloured head.
The nose is both sweet and oakish, a back ground of hops and banana and citrus, sort of a weird combo but it works.
Taste is agreeable and mellow, almost cream like in texture on first sip.Caramel, vanilla and yes, oak, come through strongest followed by the carbonation and a earthy bitter grass/lemon taste.the transition back to unctuous is not that smooth, but the finish is thick on the tongue and very candy like.
This is a good beer, worth our time to find and try.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ciemnozłote, klarowne piwo o dość obfitej pianie, która redukuje się do pierścionka przy brzegu szkła. Aromat głównie waniliowy. W smaku wanilia i nuty drewna. Goryczka średnia. Ogólnie całkiem ciekawe piwo, jednak posiada trochę za mało cech kojarzących się stricte z piwem, dobrze że z tych cech jest chociaż goryczka.

Great rich smooth palate with strong oaky base flavor and brief tang as it enters your mouth.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330 mL bottle shared by ebone1988 for the god damned book again. The pour is a honey colored golden yellow with a thin bubbly collar of light gray head and a little lace. The aroma is sweet and light. There is a lot of caramel malt and a metallic dominance before it carries off to a little burnt toffee. It has a nice finish on the aroma, but the metallic and other factors through the middle aren’t good. The flavor is awful. There is a sweet vanilla and toffee that really is the only good factors. The metallic and light malt just suck. It’s incredibly basic and not good. The mouth feel is thin and watery with hardly any carbonation and a lingeringly overly sweet fake caramel. It’s not good in any aspect. This is a horrible beer. Good lord

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2016 Bottle shared with koleminer20. Damn book. Aroma is caramel, toffee, metallic, slight booze, eh. Appearance is golden amber, off white head, clear. Taste is caramel, toffee, metallic, watery, bland. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light carbonation, dry caramel aftertaste. Overall, this is one I never would?ve bought without this book. So yeah. Bad.

Bottle from Alko. Amber color with small white head. Aroma is very sweet, toffee and banana. Taste is like ’’symphony of flavors’’, I can taste toffee, banana, vanilla, oak, smoke... It is very sweet, but very enjoyable as well.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
An amber colour with almost no head. Nose is sweet and oaky. Taste is very sweet but enjoyable nonetheless. This beer is not very special in any way but worth a try.
