0.3 l bottle from Drankenservice Francoise, bottled in january 2015. Clear, deep red with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Fruity-malty aroma of raisins, dark cherries, redcurrant, caramel and a bit of alcohol. Sweetish, fruity-malty aroma of raisins, dark cherries, redcurrant and caramel, followed by a short, just slightly bitter finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Pleasant, without any highlights.

Too sweet and spicy in the wrong way for me. Not bad though, but wouldn’t have it again.

Beżowa piana nie jest trwała, raczej niska, sycząca i szybko redukująca się do zera. Barwa ciemno miedziana, mętna. W aromacie można wyczuć karmel, pumpernikiel, lukrecję, melasę, a w tle zioła typu eukaliptus, mięta, lipa czy rumianek. W smaku podobnie, lekko słodkie, przypomina z jednej strony miód pitny a z drugiej syrop prawoślazowy lub Tussipect na kaszel, dość gęste, przy tym drobno nagazowane, co sprawia wrażenie kłucia w język. Goryczki praktycznie nie ma, zastąpiona apteczno-ziołową nutą. Alkohol dobrze ukryty. Ciekawe i bardzo nietypowe piwo o degustacyjnym, deserowym profilu. Gęste, treściwe, słodowe i dość wymagające w odbiorze rekompensuje nam to ciekawymi doznaniami, nieczęsto spotykanymi w piwach.

The_Osprey (3456) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2015
Bottle shared at Leighton’s. 8.5% BB March 2017. Hazy dirty dark red, big foamy tan head, light lacing. Aroma is spice, sweet stewed apple, toffee. Body is medium, a bit foamy, soft carbonation and rounded mouthfeel. Taste is sweet caramel, sugary, honey, no real bitterness. It’s alright I suppose - too sweet for me and the herbal flavours didn’t show up as much as I was hoping.
