LED40 (74) - - FEB 3, 2012
Bottle. Malty smell, dark appearance with an off white head. The taste is very strange; mostly malty, very grainy and bready. Not that complex a beer either with a thin mouthfeel and little aftertaste but noticeably dry with low hop presence. Not very good but drinkable.

rayaron (424) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - JAN 31, 2015
Bottle sample. Almost opaque dark amber with small off-white head. Light aroma of dark fruits and prune, a bit spicy. Sweetish aroma, floral with notes of corn sugar, slightly spicy and salty, a bit sour finish. Moderate carbonation, light-bodied.

starewich (163) - - JAN 8, 2015
Color: jet black. Nose is coffee and boozy sourness like cheap red wine. Body is thin, very thin. Flavor has a roasted quality and more of that wine-like tang. Yech. This is not good.

Teran (85) - Belgrade, SERBIA - DEC 27, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2015 Dark red, I saw even hint of blue color. Hardly transparent, but clear. Roasted malt, molasses, some smoky forest, animalistic touch of something wild. Not so sweet, watery texture. Low in alcohol, usually I do not drink beers under 5%. But this one is easy to drink.

ElDesmadre (1776) - Mikołów, POLAND - SEP 29, 2014
Bottle. Caramelly, grainy beer with notes of stale coffee. Some prune additionally in the flavour. Watery, dry, with an unpleasant, astringent bitterness. And there it goes, down the drain.

PawelD (261) - Gdańsk, POLAND - SEP 26, 2014
Piwo butelkowe. Aromat mocno zbożowy, lekka czekolada. Kolor czarna smoła nieprzejrzyste, bujna betonowa piana do ostatniego łyka. Piwo słodkie, bardzo bogaty kawowo czekoladowy smak, lecz brak jakiejkolwiek goryczki goryczki. Wysycenie średnie. Bardzo dobre i pijalne piwo dla miłośników czegoś słodszego aczkolwiek nie nachalnego.
