One for the connoisseur! A rich dark, full - bodied old ale like liquid Christmas Pudding.

Pours black and oily with a quickly receding head. The nose is chocolate booze and dark fruits soaked in booze. To tast this is marvellously complex with a lovely interplay of malts, chocolate and currants. The taste lingers with a warning hit of booze. Very accomplished and perfect for a winters night by an open fire. A fine example of an old ale.

adasko (1827) - Poznan, POLAND - JAN 8, 2016
Dark, almost black beer with massive poor quality head, like on coke, immediately reduce itself to just a ring. In aroma a lot of dark, bitter chocolate and dehydrated plums in liqueur. In taste it’s so nice. Smooth, velvety and very complex. Has a notes of dark chocolate, even more plums, but rather fresh ones, a bit of wood, wanila, sherry. Very long, ritch, intensive aftertaste. Slightly warms the stomach. It’s a typical couch beer. You can sit and sip it for hours. Great one!

matbli (245) - Poznań, POLAND - DEC 27, 2015
Bottle 660 ml, pours dark brown with a high head that is fast reducing to a lacing. Aroma of chocolate pudding, toffee, raisins and a touch of dark fruits. Very stoutish in taste with a lot of chocolate sweetness and a very delicate roasty bitterness in the finish. Alcohol is very well hidden. Very enjoyable brew.

Keg at The White Horse Old Ale Festival 2015. Black, big foamy dense brown head, full lacing. Aroma is molasses, gluey, twig. Body is medium to light, tingly carbonation, quite smooth. Taste is molasses, touches of coffee, dry finish with some more twig. Too sweet for my liking.
