Evilman (100) - Taverny, FRANCE - AUG 19, 2016
A very cool dark beer. Very present and pleasant coffee aroma, taste is rather smooth and alcohol level quite low so this is a beer to enjoy for any occasion. Maybe lacks a really remarkable aftertaste but it was a nice one in my opinion. If you like others Czech dark beers you’ll definitely appreciate this one. APPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW!

Bitek (419) - Warszawa, POLAND - AUG 18, 2016
Ciemne słody, trochę posłodzonej kawy. Niska goryczka, średnie wysycenie. Bardzo lekkie, wodniste. Poprawne, lecz ze względu na niski ekstrakt mało intensywne.
