3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This one poured a darker brown color with a small brown head. Aroma was of mainly coffee and roasted malts. Not muh chcolate with light barrel. Flavor is very roasted and burnt coffee with light barrel to keep it form being too bitter, but the chocolate really isnt there much at all either.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Piwo to potężny (13,5%) mariaż nut drewna i burbonu, kakao, czerwonych owoców, kawy i paloności. Już zapach miażdży zmysły, a w połączeniu ze smakiem i posmakiem kokosu i wanilii rozwala system.

375ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut! At 13.5%
Ugh - rubber and beans aroma, some booze too. Black, no head worth mentioning. Lightish mouthfeel, crispish carbonation. Taste much better, rich sweet vanillaey roast, and a dumper truck of bourbon with associated booze. However, it’s kinda pleasant. Some coconut in the finish with the sweet vanillaey roast. Ooof, that was a struggle, gullet is throbbing. Sweet boozy booze.
