4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled in 1997, bottle #2451: I found this beauty in my cellar during a recent inventory so thanks whoever gave it to me! 11 years old and this beer is great! Jet black in the pour with a light tan head that faded fast. Lots of roast in the aroma with dark fruit as well and sweet malt. Flavor is the samewith maybe a little coffee-ness to it. The finish is quick and dry with some lingering to it. No real pronounced hops in this one but then it is 11 years old as of this review. Wonderful beer which now I’m going to go have to find elsewhere as it was my one and only.

Wyczuwalny delikatny aromat wędzonki, ponadto gorzka czekolada i słodowość. Sporo ciała, konsystencja oleista, barwa prawie nieprzejrzysta. Piwo dość wytrawne, alkohol wyczuwalny, delikatnie kawowe - lurowate americano, goryczka średnia niezalegająca - okej.
