Sweet smell, dark copper colour. Sweet taste with hints of caramel, plum and little bit malt. I love it!

Doesnt look like much. Clear brown and fizzy. Mid to high carbonation. Sweet candy sugar aroma. Warming on the palate. Has a boozy taste to it like cognac or brandy. Sugary sweet at times like a dessert wine. Not bad but not particulary good either.

beerbill (3574) - Laurel, New York, USA - AUG 22, 2015
33o ml bottle that was a gift from my friend Paul. Pours a muddy brown that eventually clears to a light haze with a moderate, fairly creamy tan head that lasted through the first two sips and left little lace. Pleasant aroma of caramel with a bit of spice noted. The flavor is caramel with notable sweetness, dates, and a bit of milk chocolate. Mild spice presumably from the yeast. Very mild bitterness at the finish. Somewhat smooth and silky on the palate. Enjoyable.

Schiuma bianca sporca, fine e persistente, colore ramato. All’olfatto emerge il profumo del caramello, di frutta a pasta gialla, di prugne e qualche nota di tostato. Il corpo č medio e risulta essere una birra estremamente equlibrata ed armonica in cui il dolce iniziale viene bilanciato da una bassa carbonatazione e da una piacevolissima nota amarognola che persiste nel palato.

jawlo (155) - Katowice, POLAND - AUG 14, 2015
Aromat: brzoskwinie, miód, karmel. Wygląd: barwa ciemno-miedziana, piana obfita, zdobi szkło. Smak: spora słodyczy, brzoskwinie i karmel, lekki alkohol. Tekstura: spora ciała, trochę zbyt niskie nasycenie. Ogólne wrażenie: mocno słodowe i aromatyczne, dość pijalne, a przez to zabójcze, przydałoby się więcej nasycenie.
