courtesy of Allen - almost black in colour and with a persistent beige foam; very toasted nose of ashes and black chocolate; some fruity hoppy tones below; medium-bodied and pretty tasty; subtle carbonation and decently bitter, more collaboration between fruity hops and toasted chocolatey malts in a long finish; lingering hints of ashes - really good

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, sold as "Czarna Dziura". Also labelled a dark lager, but it tastes actually like a schwarzbier, one of the best I’ve had at that. Very dark brown, but unfortunately quickly dissipating head. Aroma is roasted malts, caramel, dark chocolate and coffee. Taste is even better, quite dry with a moderate bitterness that is stronger than in most dark lagers and schwarzbiers I’ve tried. Taste itself is dark chocolate and coffee, some less roasted malts and very little caramel. All is very nicely put together with the bitterness, very slight sweetness and some nuts in the aftertaste.

*** POLISH BEER # 150 *** bottle, thank you Schroppfy! Deep black colour, large beige head. Malty flavours with lots of caramel and roasted malts, hints of cocoa powder, shy hints of espresso. Sy hop flavours in the lingering finish. More cocoa in the finish. Delicious.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2013 50cl bottle. I can’t see through it but it looks like dark brown/red with small tanned head.
NOSE : dark chocolate, coffee, smoked meat, soya sauce and some lactic notes.
SIP : medium density body with creamy texture. Sweet beer that on a layer of cocoa and freshly brewed coffee flavors. Roasted malts reveal bitter flavors further on. The finish gets dry and sweet like a sweet coffee. Aftertaste is mud like with lactic acidity.
OVERALL : good body and rich enough. Well done.

Recenzja 23 lipca 2011 Idealne połączenie chmielowej goryczki i słodowej słodyczy, przyjemny czekoladowy zapach. Minusem szybko znikająca piana i zbyt niskie nasycenie dwutlenkiem węgla.
