Fluxing (433) - POLAND - JAN 1, 2015
Warka do 31.12.2014. Kolor rubinowy (do czarnego mu daleko), przejrzyste, klarowne. Piana poczatkowo bardzo obfita, gesta, zbita, ale szybko opadla do obraczki. W aromacie slodko, kawa, czekolada, kakao, karmel, lekkie mleko, popiol, tyton, takze lekki alkohol, po czasie wychodzi ostry, gryzacy w nos aromat (papryczki?), a takze troche suszonych owocow, rodzynek, sliwek, polaczonych z bardzo wyraznymi nutami ciemnego ciasta, herbatnikow i przypraw do piernika, ciekawe. W odczuciu brakuje mu ciala, nie jest to jeszcze wodnistosc, ale wiele nie brakuje. W smaku niewiele sie dzieje, jest lekko slodkawe i mleczne, wyraznie palone, popiolowe, a nastepnie pojawia sie potezna, kompletnie niezbalansowana piekaca, sciagajaca i zalegajaca goryczka, ktora jest wypadkowa chmielu, alkoholu i papryczek. To nawet teraz, jeden dzien po terminie jest mocno nieulozone, swieze musialo byc straszne.

Majek (415) - Ząbki, POLAND - JAN 7, 2015
Expiration date 31.12.2014. Black colour, big, quickly diminishing head. Medium intesive aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and licorice with hoppy background with hint of red wine note. Taste is medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter and light to medium dry. Finish is medium bitter and warming (minimal spicy and alcohol). Flat carbonation. Medium body. Not bad at all, but chilli note is very faint.

tomekboniek (99) - POLAND - FEB 9, 2015
Butelka. Barwa ciemna, przejrzysta, klarowna. Piana szybko opada, pozostanie po niej jedynie ślad. Aromat słodkawy, kawa, czekolada, czuć w nosie aromat gryzący papryczek. W smaku palone, suszone śliwiki, rodzynki, czekolada. Piekąca goryczka, alkoholowa. Chaos lekko ogarnia to piwo.

grew (77) - Wrocław, POLAND - FEB 16, 2015
@Bottle. Dark brown, minimal head. Aroma of roasted malts, sweet raisins. Medium to heavy sweet, medium bitterness, chillies lost their power - on the border of perception. Medium body, oily texture, flat carbonation. Very good - best before: 31.12.2014.

Jultsu (232) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2014
11.1%. Tuoksu okei. Jeppis jee okei jepulis jees. Perus lagein tuoksu, ei tästä parempaakaan voi arvioida. Vahva sitruunainen suutuntuma, arviot heittelee 1-5 /5 mutta tässä tilanteessa 3/5. Valitettavasti ei chili maistu juuriikaan.

Pelzky (62) - Szczecin, POLAND - DEC 25, 2014
Expiration date 31.12.2014. Jet black with medium and stable head. Good lacing. Strong roasty aroma, alcohol hints, hoppy notes, coffee, chocolate, vanilla and some wine notes. Taste starts with nice sweetness, some sourness in the middle and ends with medium biterness which is little long lasting. In contrast to fresh version of this beer, peppers aren’t present in aroma & taste. Very creamy & velvety texture, low carbo.

swieca (103) - POLAND - DEC 13, 2014
Aromas of milk and chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and some hops. Pours jet black with small and disappearing head. Taste is multi-layered: from chocolate and milky, through hoppy to spicy finish. Very good RIS.

Procent (230) - POLAND - DEC 16, 2014
W aromacie czekolada, kawa, lekkie chili, lekko winne, suszone owoce. Jest też jedna nieprzyjemna nuta, utlenienie, lekki ściek? Barwa czarna, piana obfita, u szczytu bardzo ładna, beżowa. W smaku kawowe, łagodne, aksamitne, goryczka na średnim poziomie. Jest jednak ta dziwna nuta, która występowała też w aromacie, nieprzyjemna, trochę gotowane warzywa (kalafior), a może po prostu chili zyskuje na intensywności. W każdym razie bardziej smakował mi przed leżakowaniem. Średnio. Warka do 30.12.2014r.
