Grzesiek79 (3257) - Radom, - OCT 4, 2012
Wyśmienite piwo. Pierwsze z szerokiego asortymentu tego browaru. Piana gigant jak śnieg na Mont Everest w największą śnieżycę. Niefiltrowane Brown Ale z osadem, Czarne jak smoła. Intensywnie słodowe. Palony słód wyczówa się ekstremalnie mocno, do tego tostowy posmak grilowy. Nuty subtelne gożkiej czekolady. Naturalny dwutlenek węgla. Super smaczne. Polecam

"a pretty nice flavorful nutty carmel brown ale. a little on the sweet side, but some bitterness present too. high carbonation, almost too much, but this ends up a good beer for the style."

Vestergaard (394) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2014
Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours clear, dark, reddish brown with a dense, off white head. Aroma has lots of toasted malts, caramel malts, wheat-like fruits, plums, figs. Overall a very nice malt profile so far. Some almost belgian style yeast or esters here as well. Taste has a slightly higher roasted bitterness, toffee, caramel malts and fruits: Banana, dried plums, dried figs and raisins. Body is pretty watery, which doesn’t suit the taste very well in my opinion. Medium carbonation.
