1L Bottle at Sloshfest, traded with Cuso, cheers Imro! Slightly hazy amber-brown colour, thin off-white head. Aroma of thick sweet barley wine malts, some red fruits, caramel, alcohol, oak, hint of spice. Flavour is quite hot, alcohol, light spicy, sweet malts, hint of plastic, light spruce, juniper, phenols, bitter finish. Medium to full-bodied. Nice and tasty stuff, fun beer.

jonas (6177) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - DEC 5, 2012
Bottle, danke Günther. Sweet cherrylike aroma with christmassy spicy notes, wooden and light metallic spruce notes following as it warms - not entirely harmonic. Cloudy red brown, low head. Sour cherry entry, vineous oak notes, caramel, berries, vanilla, pipe tobacco, herbal finish. Fullbodied, sweet body, lightly carbonated, almost sticky. Quite interesting, starts a bit muddled, but flavors mesh after it warms up and breathes a bit - in the end it is almost a full fruity red wine.

omikr0n (812) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 31, 2012
Bottle from the brewery. Pours cloudy brown color with almost no head. Aroma is wood, needles, slightly roasty and alcoholic. Taste is very complex - needles, spice, alcohol, blueberry and some more aspects I couldn’t identify. Very nice.

Csapolva ittam. A színe zavaros bronz jellegű. 0 hab, 0 szénsav. Nem szép... Illata erősen szeszes ebből adódóan édes, valamint gyümölcsös és kellemes. A folyadék tompa, olajos és sűrű. Csípős (talán a tölgyhordó miatt), édes. Felfedezhető benne a nem harsány konyakos, aszus utóíz. Furcsa vagy nem de én konkrétan a gomba aromáját is éreztem. Gyógynövényt viszont alig-alig. Van még itt méz és közepes adag komló. Sokat hallottam róla és többet is vártam. De nem olyan nagy szám.

Slowly building tan head, over fully hazy cola-coloured beer. Nutty, spicy notes, lightly curry-like spices, tad bready, dark malts and liquorice. Very complex, vinous taste, with bitter hops, old wood, fusels ŕ gogo, dark chocolate; and again a spicy surrounding, difficult to say which ones - juniperberry being definitely a possibility. Not really full-bodied, but very slick, viscous and lots of alcoholheat. Layered, long-lasting flavours into the aftertaste. Impressive to discover such a beer from Slovakia. Definitely one for the annals, and one to search for! Many, many thanks to Peter V. and his helpers!

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2012 Bottle 330 ml. Farebne plne do cervena so zakalom. Aroma jemne nasladla ale velmi vyvazena. Chut sladsia velmi aromaticka po obsiahnutych ingredienciach. Chutovo citit obsah alkoholu po prehltnuti v krku avsak neprebija ostatne. Telo plnsie sladsieho charakteru s prijemnym dozvukom. Celkovo najlepsie silne pivo co som pil.

Bottle as pictured in my Trade #2 with the mad Slovak. Deep brown with some light. Steady pillars of carbonation still yield little head. Spotty lacing. Fruit / earth nose. Moderate body with light syrup about edges. Oak, earth and light faint plums. Yeah, a nice brew. Well put together.
