Bottle on the Poland stand at World Travel Market 2013, Excel Centre, London. An amber coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Sweet, caramel type aroma. Taste is similar, sweetish, caramel, malty. Not my cup of tea to be honest.

500ml bottle (Chmielarnia, Warsaw)
Ewwwwww, that’s an off aroma. Nice reddy amber, persistent tight off-white head. Ewww, lactic sourness in the taste too. But a very nice roast . Shame about the sourness, I can tell there’s a nice dark beer behind the flaws. The finish is actually very nice, the fullness of the roast covers the tongue. Nice nutty finish. The lacticity probably improves the fullness of the palate. I would like to have this fresh as the brewer intended.
