3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reddish medium brown. Thin head. The aroma is a little toffee and a little liquorice. Quite sweet, lots of dark sugars. Not terribly complex, and you definitely need to be in the mood for sweet.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
50cl bottle. The bottle has a name ARMAGEDON 2012 and it is apparently a special edition of their dark beer. I’m almost sure it’s the same one. Dark brown with small lightly tanned head. Nose : dairy creamy aroma, little toffee and milk chocolate. Flowers. Sip : Medium body with creamy texture. Decent carbonation. Sweet with milk chocolate and flower flavors. End is very mild and almost no aftertaste for the moment. Easy to drink. Ok dunked. Extra points for nice body and drinkability.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Beer Gallery Krakow. Has a garnet tint. Huge malt aroma, big dark brown bread, pumpernickel, molasses, honey sweetness but nice kind. The palate is soft. The beer remains solidly bready and reminescent of doppelbock in its liquid bread character. Nourishing.
