3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2011 New comment: In bottle this is similar to the draft version. I have had both many times now. In the bottle his beer loses essential parts of the body, although the carbonation is adequate. Down .1 from 3.6 to 3.5. Original on draft: To me this was a classic schwarz taste, milky, roasty, with moderate sweetness and only a touch of bitterness. Mild aroma of forest wet earth, bark, faint milk chocolate. Huge head, carbonation high and a bit out ofstyle but I liked it. Word is that the recipe will change...as this is thought to be too dunkleish, but I am not seeing it. Very dark, almost black. On tap at the opening of Piwoteka Narodowa.
