Grzesiek79 (4001) - Radom, POLAND - AUG 25, 2016
Troche rozgrewajace Szkockie Ale. Za duzo sie wyczuwa alkoholu, wiec niezbyt ukryty. Ladna barwa rownomiernie czerwona z ladna piana trwala oblepiajaca szklo. Fajne ale za mocno alkoholowe

From Hipercor. In Ikea’s pint glass. Watching Carmina y Amen. Very balanced and pleasant, with a soft sweetness and high drinkability in spite of its ABV

beeard (5) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2016 does not count
A powerful beer, it’s boozy, malty and hoppy and will knock your socks off. I absolutely love it, can’t get enough of its spicy, dark flavours.

This beer has a smoky aroma, and it’s well crafted. However, it was not the taste we were expecting.
