Bottle.Surprisingly long lasting yellowish head.Good carbonation. taste a bit unbalanced, tad bitter, leaves a strong aftertaste. Ratherstrong, good warming- up effect, if you like it.

Moscicki (129) - Tarnow, POLAND - AUG 19, 2013
Caramel and hoppy aroma, distant hints of butter. Nice really steady head which stays with you very long, however it lacks creamy consistence I always look for in amber ales. Very thin texture, predominant bitterness in taste which leads to quite sour finish. This beer lacks balance and apart from quite aggressive bitterness does not have very much more to offeer. Carbonation is too high I think and it steals quite a lot from drinkability. Overal average beer not really worth remembering.

Derbeth (304) - Kraków, POLAND - JUL 11, 2013
Aroma: herby hops, a bit caramel, slight note of fruit. Colour: copper. Minimal head, does not last long, decent lacing. Medium bitterness, light sweetness. Medium body, oily feel. Nice beer, a bit like English ale, with bitterness above average, but not harsh.

hirigalzkar (2282) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2012
Bottle. Notes of vegtables, caramel and rye bread. Finishes bitter. Quite drinkable, but there is something wrong with the balance, maybe it’s a bit to dry for it’s style? Interesting anyway.

ElDesmadre (1524) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUN 17, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2012 Second rating: the recipe has seemingly changed. Lots of caramel, honey and grassy hops in both aroma and flavour, the bitterness is lighter (still strong for a Polish beer) and no longer harsh. First rating: Bottle. Amber with rocky head. Aroma of caramel, dark bread, earth, dried plums, liquorice, some fruitiness but not too intensive. Taste is mainly caramel but the fruit esters are more prominent than in the smell. Thick and heavy, lasting hop bitterness, grassy, herbal, earthy. Oily palate. Very dry and heavy beer. A bit too earthy, could be more balanced but definitely interesting. The hoppiness is really strong, especially for a Polish beer.

Quack-Duck (7793) - Down South, GERMANY - APR 16, 2011
bottle, donated by Schroppfy! Clear amber-brown colour with a red glow. Large, beige head. Intensive aroma of caramel and hops. Malty background, no sweetness here, super dry, which contrasts well with the lovely and intensive caramel and chocolate flavours. Is it a Dunkel? Is it a brwon ale? Is it an amber ale? I haven’t the faintest. A top-fermented Dunkel which ist not sweet but full of lovely hops? IPA-like hops retronasal. Very unusual, habe never come across a beer like this. Smooth carbonation. Brilliant, fantastic, superb stuff! Thank you, Michael!!!!!
