Pours a dark, chestnut colour with a big frothy white head. Smell is a sweet malt with a bit of spice. Taste is balanced, lovely.

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.

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.
